The Colombo City Port is a planned city in Colombo which is meant to be built on reclaimed land next to the Galle Face Green, an ocean side urban park located beside the financial and business district of Colombo. The key features of Colombo Port City include a marina and a yacht club, a central boulevard, a sea view apartment complex and a five-star hotel, in addition to a shopping and entertainment centre, office spaces, a mini golf course, and many other modern facilities. Since the beginning the project has faced resistance by the local communities and environmentalists for the adverse impact that would be caused to marine ecology, environment and fishermen’s livelihood . The project is the landmark of the infrastructure development programme launched in 2009, after the end of the civil war, by the former government headed by Rajapaska. It was suspended after Rajapaksa lost the elections in January 2015, with the new government saying it wanted to review all projects to ensure they were environmentally viable and corruption-free. However, in March 2016 the government decided to allow it to proceed, in a move seen as an effort to reassure China.
