16 Nov, 2012 05:45:02
Nov 16, 2012 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's Grand Orient Hotel, owned by a state bank and adjacent British colonial era buildings will be re-developed with the help of private investment in a project which may involve up to a billion US dollars, the state information office said.
State run Bank of Ceylon has developed a three stage plan involving GOH which it owns and nearby building of the police department while maintaining its historical aspects, under a plan approved by the cabinet of ministers.

The buildings are in the heart of Colombo's Fort, a British colonial era quarter.

The 'public private partnership' involves converting the GOH into a 5-star hotel and the entire project will result in a 500 room hotel, the information office said.

What happens to the road adjoining it as its blocked by police headquarters which has a monsterous building across the road.

A very misleading info. So many misquoted info and many 500 roomed hotels in the pipeline. Hope the projects will get off fast tracked and construction begins as Movenpick is lagging behind and so are others.
