Galle Face will definitely look completely different a couple of years from now. I visited Colombo about a year ago and was amazed by the number of cranes all over the city.
Yes, on the land side Galle Face will have many tall skyscrapers crowding in. On the North side Port City buildings will be rising up.

Interestingly with the new Port city acting as a breakwater a wide natural beach seems to be forming in front of Galle Face.
