“The city landscape of Colombo is rising and featuring
aesthetic architecture. This shows a good sign to Colombo’s economy. Aesthetic
architecture needs scale economy, providing an extra reason to build taller
buildings. The economic risk of building skyscrapers is large and sudden increase in
supply due to indivisibility. Additionally, there might be certain social
implications that policy makers need to be mindful. Good governance and planning
could offer a solution. Colombo’s urban and real estate development needs to
optimize economic vibrancy and social and environmental sustainability.”
