Skyliners in Colombo: Futuristic Living


Surely, it was the development arisen with post-war period that brought in a large number of foreign and local investments to Colombo. Skyscrapers are what makes a city emerged, financially developed and brings good-vibes to a first timer and hope to its people. Residents. And civilians. Now we can safely say the sky’s the limit! Or is it?

1. BOC Headquarters

Remember the days when Pittu Bambuwa (good old BOC with a height of 105 meters) was the only skyscraper in the bustling commercial capital? Nostalgia hits you, right? And even before Pittu Bambuwa, the Ceylinco Seylan Building (76m) was there, since 1960s. The Bambalapitiya Tower Building was completed in 1980 for residential purposes. Then there was UDA Scheme Tower, purely built for residential purposes, in 1985 and 100 meters tall. Pittu Bambuwa arrived next, cementing the top place in Colombo skyline. That was, until, the two towers of World Trade Center were completed in 1996, both 152 meters tall. In the near future, Colombo skyline is going to be more populated. Now before that happens let's go on a trip around Colombo to see the existing and upcoming towers of Colombo.

2. Dialog Iconic

Dialog Iconic (probably the fanciest HQ in Sri Lanka) is located at Union Place and was opened just roughly a year ago. Tip - Several floors of the building is restricted for public access, however the Auditorium is used to hold meetups and gatherings for the public. The auditorium is located on the top most floor. Go check it out for a breath taking view of the Colombo Skyline.

4. Colombo Lotus Tower

Today, we have Colombo Lotus Tower, currently 255 meters tall which is going to be 350 meters tall upon completion and regarded as the tallest building in South Asia. And let’s not forget about The Altair Project either which is going to be 240m tall with 68 stories upon completion. And everything here is for residential use and going to be one of the luxury skyline apartments in Sri Lanka. With the unique architectural design of Altair, it would surely stand out in Colombo Skyline.
