Responding to the rapidly increasing demand for modernized, high-end commercial office spaces in Colombo, Orion Development announced the continued expansion of its pioneering IT Park, Orion City, with the development of its latest project, the Bellatrix Building.
The six storey building will house an expansive 95,000 sq ft of office space set on large 27,000 sq. ft. footplates. The new facility is housed within a modern glass façade that is designed to incorporate modern aesthetics within a function driven layout. It employs the highest quality infrastructure and utility services to meet the stringent requirements of the numerous dynamic companies already operating out of the sought-after IT Park. The facility will also comprise a private lobby and lifts, a spacious rooftop area and covered parking within the building.
Construction on the project is already well underway with the building being ready for fit-out by August and occupation by October 2016.
Notably, Bellatrix Building’s developers will offer multiple pricing models that include guaranteed parking at competitive rates, while early reservations will be offered discounts on bookings before 31st March and 30th June 2016.
Established in 2009, Orion City has rapidly built a reputation for excellence, having repeatedly set the Sri Lankan benchmark in terms of sophisticated commercial space and office infrastructure. 32 high caliber, local and international corporates now base their operations out of Orion City including giants such as Virtusa, Pearson, and WNS – a testament to Orion’s unwavering reputation.
The extensive facilities offered within the Bellatrix Building will be further complemented by the wide range of services offered at Orion City. This will include comprehensive banking services, a Hemas Wellness Centre, a fully-equipped gymnasium and popular food franchises such as Subway and Coffee Bean.
The Bellatrix Building is situated on 16 acres of prime land on Baseline Road, Colombo 09, where approximately 550,000 sq. ft. of land has already been developed for the Park’s existing commercial space. Further large-scale developments are already in the pipeline for Orion City over the medium term; most notably, the Orion Towers project – an ambitious 22-floor development that will incorporate state-of-the-art technology as well as the prestigious Gold LEED certification in environmentally friendly standards.
The completion of Orion Towers is part of a master plan from Orion Development to create Sri Lanka’s first one-stop hub for innovation and collaboration, ultimately growing from an IT Park into a veritable micro-city that caters to a spectrum of service sector companies while also leading the way in terms of true eco-friendly construction and processes on par with the highest international standards.
