Apr 05, 2013 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s Colombo Land and Development Company Plc, will build a 600 million rupee expansion, through a wholly owned unit, the state investment promotion agency said. Colombo Land owns the Liberty Plaza shopping mall in the Kollupitiya upmarket area in Sri Lanka’s capital.

Liberty Developers (Pvt) Ltd has signed an agreement with the Board of Investment said. The BOI gives tax breaks to projects.

The project involves two floors of retail space of 20,000 square feet each, with parking space. It will be connected to an existing mall on the first and second levels.
