The newly-renovated building complex in close proximity to Independence Square in Colombo was declared open as Arcade Independence Square on Sunday evening by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The extensive renovation of the complex was undertaken with the participation of personnel from the Armed forces and the Civil Defence Force, under the direct supervision of the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The renovated complex originally consisted of several buildings that were constructed in the colonial era.

In the recent past, the complex was home to several state offices, including the Auditor General’s Department.

The renovated complex will now serve as a luxury modern shopping complex and entertainment facility featuring world-renowned brands and a cinema complex equipped with modern technology.
