COLOMBO | World Capital Centre | 625m | 2051ft | 117 fl | Pro

Found this on CTBUH, surprised there was no thread for this here. Not sure how real it is but it's still a megatall.


Al Aman WCC will be a financial and business hub promoting an environment conductive for finance based activities such as banking, as well as, to unite ancillary supporting facilities in a single modern development. Every convenience for a comfortable business environment will be provided within the 110 floors of the proposed tower including facilities for exhibitions, retail shops and even luxurious leisure activity centers.

World Capital Centre Limited is a dream child of the Al Aman Group of Companies and is set to take the world by storm beginning with the initial project of World Capital Centre Towers to be built in the business heart of Colombo. This proposed building will be an ultramodern facilities filled skyscraper of 110 floors – which would make it the 3rd tallest proposed buildings in the world and upon completion, will be the tallest in the South Asian region and the 9th tallest in the world. This will only be the first such project and nine other projects have been planned in commercial capitals of major trading countries. The World Capital Centre will be a showcase of the most modern facilities coupled with the latest innovations to make it stand out from all other such entities in the world today. This will be a landmark development with its own helipad and other necessities to make access easy for the busy business traveler as well as for the leisure visitor looking for a completely satisfying holiday. The World Capital Centre will offer hotel facilities with top of the range services, luxury apartments of various specifications, Business Promotion Zones, Investment Centres, Banks, Investment Opportunities, Trading and fifty Zones of activities to cater to every area of human need.

It'll never happen. Nor should it. Way more things to be fixed in Colombo before reaching for 2000ft+ skyscrapers.

Well they made the videos so it must be real.

"World's largest building". What does that even mean?

Well, it certainly won't be the tallest in the world.

Anyway, this is in fact 2 towers, connected with some floors. Both will need an (elevator)core which makes it inefficient in floor space and expensive.
Pretty cool looks though.

I'm confused...

Lakmal said work begins(began) Feb 4th?
Is this a real project and is it really either under construction or prepping?

Some more info would be much appreciated.
I emailed the contact email and asked for more details. We will see.

Colombo has lots of potential. They should target more Indian and East asian tourists and investors.

The World Capital Centre (WCC) signed a US$ 2 billion investment agreement with the Board Of Investment (BOI) yesterday, for the much hyped and long awaited tallest building in the Asian region and the 9th tallest to be in the world. The World Capital Centre also known as WCC is a globally renowned chain with its operations spread across the world and will be the centre of multiple trading and service providing establishments, having an astonishing twin tower with modern amenities of 117 floors, gracing a height of 625 metres to be built in the heart of Colombo’s commercial area. It will include 1,200 residential units, 2,000 hotel rooms, 3,000 retail outlets, 5,000 car-parking spaces, the WCC 7-star hotel, 20 luxurious swimming pools, gold presidential suites with gold-plated interiors, world’s fastest double-decker elevators, first Michelin starred restaurant in Sri Lanka, stunning observation deck and a helipad on the topmost floor. The signing ceremony was represented by the Chairman of BOI - Upul Jayasooriya and the other senior officials of the BOI while WCC was represented by its key figure heads, the Chairman of WCC - Ahmed Moulana, Deputy Chairman of WCC - Vivekanandarajah A. Moorthy, Director of WCC - Dr. Senaka Silva, Director of WCC - Dr. Arosha Fernando, Director of WCC - R. Sadesh Kumar, Director of WCC - Wijendran Balakrishnan, MD of WCC - Imran Saleem, CEO of WCC Media - Shafraz Jalaldeen, and the Secretary of WCC - Waruni V. Ranasinghe. This proposed building would be the tallest in Asia and the 9th in the world as accepted by the Skyscraper Centre of U.S.A., and will be the largest tower in the world having a total built up area of 800,000 square metres first of its kind in Sri Lanka, which would be an ultimate tribute to Sri Lanka as well as in the Asian economy, expected to be completed by end of year 2022. Sri Lanka being centrally located in South Asia is perfectly poised to be the launch pad for the Capital Centre owing to all the bilateral trade agreements, close ties with the developing nations and the long trade history with the rest of the world. While many international banks have been operating in Sri Lanka for decades, the ending of the war has seen the expat community blooming together with large multinational companies looking to invest in new businesses or to open up branches. Within the region, Sri Lanka is very easy to do business with and eventually has the potential to become what Dubai is to the Middle East, what London is to Europe, what Singapore is to South-East Asia or what New York is to the Americas. WCC intends to be the first financial centre to offer an innovative vehicle for investment companies to have their South Asian base here in Sri Lanka giving an extraordinary boost to the economic development of the country.
