Raimon Land Plc plans two condominium projects in Pattaya this year, with unit prices starting below 50,000 baht a square metre, the first mid-market developments the company has undertaken since 2004.
Unit prices will start below 50,000 baht a square metre, the first mid-market development the company has undertaken since 2004.
The move is in line with its policy to shift from foreign to Thai buyers after the global financial crisis crushed most foreigners’ purchasing power in 2009.
The first low-priced project in Pattaya in 2011 is the 480-unit Zire Wongamat worth 2.9 billion baht located on Wong Amat Beach.
The unit prices will start from 1.9 million baht or 47,500 baht a sq m and the sizes will be smaller, starting at 48 sq m for one-bedroom units. At the company’s recently completed Northpoint condo in Pattaya, one-bedroom units are 70 square metres.
The company also plans another project on an eight-rai site with no beachfront in Pattaya city but is waiting to see market feedback on the Zire before launching it.
