On the north shore of the bigger Lake Beira the 350 m. tall Lotus Tower is currently under construction. It’s a radio and television communication tower which will also greatly serve the tourism sector. The design is that of a lotus flower, a totally unique concept which will definitely be a magnet for tourists and local leisure seekers. When finished, it will be surrounded by a large amusement park. A top end revolving restaurant, a food court, a posh banquet hall, a conference center, a museum and a shopping mall for electronic items will contain the Lotus complex. The construction started in 2012 and is expected to be completed in 2015.
The spectacular Lotus Tower under construction is actually situated in Colombo 10 and not in Slave Island, although on the edge of the border.
