The enchanting 350 meters high gigantic 11-storyed tower called, “Lotus Tower” will be rising up in the sky starting on this new year, 2012 January 20 at the Beira Lake water front (Beira Wewa) in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The Lotus Tower will be the 19th tallest tower in the world. On the other hand, Lotus Tower is the tallest tower in South Asia. The Lotus Tower will be constructed on a land of 3.06 hectares (30, 600 square meters of land) in the heart of Colombo. Just like the Toronto CNN Tower, in Toronto, Lotus Tower will bring the pride and significance to the commercial city Colombo. It will become the ultimate symbolic landmark of the world tourism in the near future. According to Sri Lankan News Media, Lotus Tower will consist of four storeys high podium. The podium itself will have a telecommunication museum, fast food courts, offices, magnificent exhibition halls, and conference hall.
