Asia’s Tallest Tower to Be Built in SL


Posted on 2017-08-16 Author:LIYUCSF


It is reported that the World Capital Centre (WCC) plans to build an astonishing tower with modern amenities of 117 floors, gracing a height of 625 metres in the heart of Colombo’s commercial area. It will include 1,200 residential units, 2,000 hotel rooms, 3,000 retail outlets, 5,000 car-parking spaces, the WCC 7-star hotel, 20 luxurious swimming pools, gold presidential suites with gold-plated interiors, world’s fastest double-decker elevators, first Michelin starred restaurant in Sri Lanka, stunning observation deck and a helipad on the topmost floor. In particular, every convenience for a business environment will be provided within the proposed tower including attractions such as exhibition spaces as well as retail and leisure activities under one roof. 




This proposed building would be the tallest in Asia and the 9th in the world as accepted by the Skyscraper Centre of U.S.A., and will be the largest tower in the world having a total built up area of 800,000 square metres first of its kind in Sri Lanka, which would be an ultimate tribute to Sri Lanka as well as in the Asian economy, expected to be completed by end of year 2022 with the expected investment of US$2 billion.




Sri Lanka being centrally located in South Asia is perfectly poised to close ties with the developing nations and the long trade history with the rest of the world. While many international banks have been operating in Sri Lanka for decades, the ending of the war has seen the expat community blooming together with large multinational companies looking to invest in new businesses or to open up branches. Within the region, Sri Lanka is very easy to do business with and eventually has the potential to become what Dubai is to the Middle East, what London is to Europe, what Singapore is to South-East Asia or what New York is to the Americas.
