Location: Colombo, Sri Lanka
This is a high rise, mixed use development in the capital city of Colombo, surrounded by a rich context. Within the vicinity of the site lie the Port of Colombo in the Indian Ocean, Beira Lake, the World Trade Center, Fort Railway Station, Central Bank, Hilton Hotel, the Secretariat Railway Station, etc. Some of these buildings have a heritage value and distinct colonial character, which posed a problem for any high rise, contemporary development here. However, by raising Transworks Tower on a podium that meets the elevation line of these historic structures, we were able to create a harmony between the old and the new at eye level.
This project is envisioned to be 80 storeys high, among the highest towers in South Asia. It will include office spaces, retail, a 7 star hotel and high end residential apartments.
