Sri Lanka’s Board of Investment has officially agreed to invest $330 million USD to construct the “1996 Iconic Tower,” a tribute to Arjuna Ranatunga’s Cricket team, which won the World Cup in 1996.

The tower, which will become the country’s tallest with 96 floors at about 363 meters in height, was designed by ARK Studio West | Architect Reza Kabul. The construction will be a mixed-use development, with 376 residential apartments, 92 penthouses, and amenities like a pool, gymnasium, spa, and outdoor sky decks.

Overall, the project is anticipated to take four years to complete. Learn more here.
