BOC Building is located at No. 48 on Bristol Street in Colombo Fort, Sri Lanka.

The building was used as the Chamber of Commerce in the early 20th century, while the upper floor was reserved for tea sales (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016). It was also used by Messageries Maritimes, a French merchant shipping company that carried on a regular mail service between France, India, China and Australia (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016).
