Phnom Penh, 24 March 2018 – Embassy Central, the most exciting urban project to come to Phnom Penh’s prestigious district Boeung Keng Kang 1 (BKK1), has finally reached a milestone. The residential development located on street 352, celebrated its topping off ceremony held today.
Property developer Urbanland along with construction crew and project contributors, gathered for the final ceremonial concrete pour for the top floor of Embassy Central. “All of us are incredibly proud of the work that has been done so far by the entire construction crew. We hold our projects up to higher standards than you would otherwise see in the city and we expect our team to do the same. We are grateful for their hard work and setting the bar even higher,” says Hok Kang, Founder and Managing Director of Urbanland.
“We are thrilled to be delivering another iconic residential development in BKK1, and we look forward to welcoming our homeowners in 2019,” Hok added. As construction into the Phnom Penh’s skyline has progressed, so have sales. “Sales have been robust in the last part of 2017 and up until Chinese New Year, having sold over 70% of the building. I think potential buyers have seen progress and are confident in the quality we are putting out. Embassy Central is geared towards end-users and we are definitely seeing a lot of them, both local and expats. At Urbanland, we strive to create quality homes and communities that add value to the areas they are in and I think we are doing a good job of that,” said Hok.
Construction began at Embassy Central in 2016 and has been progressing on schedule upwards and hitting every milestone in its advancement into the Phnom Penh skyline. “With the completion of the building frame, we can move to the façade and installation work,” explains Christian Gusaypo, Project Manager of Urbanland. He goes on to add that the residential project is slated for completion and move-in ready by January 2019.
