A master bedroom with a balcony, a living area with a balcony, a pantry area with a utility terrace, as well as a dining area are standard features in all units. The larger units also feature separate maid’s quarters and a toilet. Tiled flooring, high-quality bathroom fittings, and modern designs are integral to the ambiance of each apartment, providing residents with a blend of elegance and functionality in their daily living experience.

Furthermore, several amenities grace this property, including a swimming pool, gymnasium, function hall, supermarket, kids’ play area, restaurants as well as laundry services. With 24-hour security and CCTV surveillance, a centralised gas system, provisions for hot water connections and air conditioning, and a waste management facility, the residents’ day-to-day needs are taken care of. The building also takes an eco-friendly approach with rainwater harvesting, solar-powered lighting for common areas, and an electric vehicle charging facility.

The apartments at Elliot Place, Borella, are a testament to reliability and excellence, crafted by one of Sri Lanka’s premier engineering firms, Access Engineering PLC.
