Thu, Jun 20, 2013, 07:58 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 20, Colombo: A 475-room luxury hotel is being developed in Colombo to provide accommodation for delegates attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in November.

The government told parliament that the Celestial Towers building that belonged to the Ceylinco Investment Group of Companies is being developed into a luxury hotel.

Investment Promotion Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena said the property is being developed under the Urban Development Authority (UDA).

The Minister made the comment in response to a question raised by United National Party (UNP) MP Ravi Karunanayaka.

The government last week launched the official CHOGM website and said that preparations are underway for the summit scheduled to be held in Colombo later this year.
