HSBC Electronic Data Processing Lanka Ltd (HSBC EDPL) is poised to relocate from Rajagiriya to Havelock City’s Grade-A office space, Mireka Tower. The highly anticipated office tower is set to open in mid-2022 and its opening has been further bolstered by the announcement of HSBC EDPL as its latest tenant.
HSBC EDPL consolidated the move by signing a lease agreement with Havelock City Ltd. on 13 December. HSBC EDPL will occupy eight floors within the coveted office space in Havelock City, which is lauded as one of Colombo’s most sought-after locations for work.
HSBC EDPL is one of HSBC’s key Global Service Centre (GSC) which operates from only eight countries, including Sri Lanka. It forms an integral part of HSBC Global Operations underscoring the importance of Sri Lanka to the world – from its office in Sri Lanka, HSBC EDPL’s employees deliver high quality financial and professional services for international clients around the world.
Commenting on Mireka Tower’s newest high-profile occupant, Overseas Realty Chief Executive Officer Pravir Samarasinghe said, “HSBC EDPL’s relocation from its existing office in Rajagiriya to Mireka Tower is a validation of the building’s high-end specifications and compliance with stringent international health and safety standards required by premium multinationals. It is an endorsement of Overseas Realty as a landlord reputed for its expertise in catering to the requirements of corporates with wide and complex local and international specifications for their office space and to the needs of their employees.
“Further, the move is also a marker of the centrality and ease of access of Mireka Tower’s location within the city. Mireka Tower’s design deconceptualizes the contemporary office space. It prioritizes quality infrastructure and amenities and comes primed with unique features. We’re very pleased to welcome the HSBC EDPL Centre to Mireka Tower.”
With an exclusive corporate address, the distinctive 50-storey Mireka Tower features Grade-A premium and energy efficient office spaces built to the highest construction standards. The tower is a key focal point in the highly anticipated 18-acre Havelock City mixed-use development project. Occupants of the tower will be able to innovate, strategize and sculpt the businesses of Sri Lanka’s commercial future in expansive, column-free, and light-filled offices that offer spectacular cityscape views. The office tower is adjacent to the Havelock City Shopping Mall providing easy access to medical, banking, and telecommunication services, as well as a variety of retail and food and beverage options. Commuters can access the building via bus and the proposed LRT stations, with the additional advantage of two basement levels of parking with over 800 vehicle spaces.
