Another big hotel project in Colombo

The government is to launch another hotel project in Colombo Fort, taking over the former Dutch Hospital (Transworks Building) opposite the one time Central Telegraph Office, a senior official of the Urban Development Authority said.
The adjoining car park and a land bordering Chatham Street and Hospital Street in Fort have also been identified for a tourist entertainment venue as part of the project, the official said.
“The former Dutch Hospital will be turned into a hotel in a manner that the ancient structure remains and the archeological value is preserved,” he said without disclosing details about the investors of the project.
