Views over the Royal Bangkok Sports Club from Ratchadamri Road Scene of some of the fiercest fighting in May’s bloody crackdown and home to some of Bangkok’s finest establishments, including hotels the Hyatt Erawan and Four Seasons and the soon to be completed St Regis Residences, Ratchadamri Road in the centre of Bangkok, is set for a new six-star entrant.
Comprising of 1,000 square metres of retail space, 6,000 sq m of office space, a 250-room six-star hotel and 400 to 500 units of high-priced condominiums with total usable area of up to 62,400 sq m.
The Bangkok Post has reported that units will be sold at between 130,000 to 140,000 baht a sq m., sixty to seventy thousand less than other neighbouring developments as the plot sits on Crown Property Bureau (CPB) land.
The new developers are confident that with only 15 years remaining on the current lease the CPB will agree to an extension. Under a pre-existing contractual obligation, all the office space will be used by the Debsirin Alumni Association, formerly an owner of the plot before Maneeya Group took it over.
Ground breaking on the original plot took place in 1994 before construction was stopped due to financial difficulties prior to the 1997 Asian economic crisis and despite the interest of another investor several years ago has remained vacant.
Overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club with unrestricted vistas east over the city, Ratchadamri Road remains one of the most coveted locations in Bangkok, bordering Bangkok’s central commercial shopping district.
The announcement of this development also comes at a time when another vacant building, abandoned since 1997, adjacent to Bangkok’s elevated Skytrain station Nana and situated on prime Sukhumvit real estate, has been demolished ahead of a new development.

Being a developing country, the cost of property in Thailand is much lower than in the more developed European markets. But, on the other hand, prices for Thai property, in general, are rising at a much faster rate.
Many Real estate developers in Thailand have developed and implemented market research technologies and monitor the market closely.
Thailand’s property market was able to rebound from past crises and there is every reason to believe it will be able to absorb the blow of recent political tensions.
The taxation situation has actually improved the conditions for purchasing property in Thailand, and if property prices do dip slightly as a result of the current situation it may actually be a good time to buy as there is a very real possibility Thailand property will regain its golden outlook soon.
Is There a Silver lining amid COVID-19?
Thinking of the future impact of this pandemic on office buildings, it may have already dawned on many of us that a majority of potential long-term trends and health measures will become permanent work-life features in the times to come.
The time is ripe to embrace Industry 4.0
Traditional brick-and-mortar retail has suffered tremendously, as countries have been implementing effective stay-at-home and social distancing policies to mitigate virus spread, while those worst hit have enacted strict draconian lockdowns
We have entered a time where, seemingly, interconnectedness is the new enemy, staying in is the new going out, and antisocial is the new social. COVID-19 has brought us on the cusp of growing accustomed to new norms and sounded a wake-up call in terms of how we live.
Covid-19 puts flexible space markets under strain
In the wake of operator defaults, landlords will be forced to re-evaluate the role of flexible space in their portfolios.
The global Covid-19 outbreak has had serious negative effects on commercial real estate, including flexible space. Of late, many operators have experienced the flexible nature of the business working against them, as many occupiers have opted to surrender desks and implement work-from-home plans.
