Having introduced Sri Lanka’s first IT Park in 2009, Orion Development, took its first steps towards the next milestone in the sector – Orion Towers, a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly, three-phase development in the heart of Colombo which commenced construction recently.

Orion Towers is the company’s most ambitious undertaking under the greater developmental master plan of the Orion City IT Park.

This master plan envisions for its partners a one-stop hub for innovation and collaboration in a space custom designed for business and personal needs. At Orion Towers users will have access to gymnasiums, retail malls, dining options, and hospitality services, which will merge to become a micro-city catering to their every need. A boutique hotel and green eco-decks will also occupy the approximately 350,000 square feet of rentable area in the 22-floor building.

Orion City currently extends across a sprawling 16-acre property with 550,000 square feet of built up space. With its constantly evolving set of services and facilities the park has created a work-conducive atmosphere for over 6,000 heads based at the park.

Located in Colombo 09 on Baseline Road, Orion Towers offers close proximity to the bustling metropolitan of the country’s commercial capital. The building’s design draws inspiration from the Orion belt, perhaps the most distinct and familiar constellation in the night sky. Three towers at a formidable height of 110 metres will rise above the Colombo skyline, redefining the norms for IT infrastructure in Sri Lanka.
