Singaporean firm steps in again to rejuvenate Colombo city development plan

A Singapore urban development consulting company, Cesma International re-branded as Surbana, is now engaged in Colombo city master-planning and redevelopment work to build a ‘megapolis’ in Sri Lanka’s Western Province, Urban Development Authority Chairman Ranjth Fernando told the Business Times.

According to the proposal, Fort, Pettah, Kollupitiya and Maradana with a total land area of over 1,033 hectares were envisaged as the New Downtown containing the Business and the Financial District. Slave Island and Galle Road were to be the shopping areas.
