As the thirst for condominiums in Thailand remains at an all-time high, new buildings are springing up all over. Competition in the market is fierce, but developers in Thailand have upped the ante by becoming Southeast Asian leaders quickly responding to investor needs ensuring they receive the best value for money with their purchase.
These innovative developers include One. Six Development and Magnolia Quality Development Corporation with their recent new addition The Strand. Boasting one of the most enviable locations in Bangkok, The Strand in Thong Lor secured the Best Luxury Condo Architectural Design (Bangkok) in the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2018 with its open landscape design building a community as well as a residence. The aim was to integrate live, work and play within one space in this melting pot of business people, entrepreneurs, and artists.
Vittorio residence by AP (Thailand) Public Company Limited has a similar ethos. This ultra-modern condominium that oozes luxury doubles as a contemporary art gallery, demonstrating the type of resident they are aiming for. Naturally, Vittorio won the Best Condo Interior Design (Bangkok) which is easy to see with its grandeur and heightened exclusivity with private lifts and a bespoke concierge service. The level of design has been seen across all tiers of property including resort styles Wyndham Atlas Wongamat Pattaya by Habitat Group Co., Ltd. Winning Best Condo Interior Design (Resort) in part due to its clever use of locally sourced materials, which marks an exciting moment in development as consumers are demanding more sustainable buildings and even smarter homes.
As a result the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2018 has added new categories to meet the way that Thai developers are adapting to give their investors best value for their investment in both terms of capital appreciation and rental yields. Carefully selecting schemes such as Patta Prime by Patta Development Co., Ltd. to be awarded Best Housing Development (Eastern Seaboard) thanks to its high quality of construction and use of building materials to the benefit its residents. The private pools using Enviroswim™ technology that prides itself on using zero chemicals for a healthier pool but also has lower maintenance costs too.
These new smart ways of building lead us onto the next award that looks at how smart technology is integrated into the home. Special Recognition for Smart Home Development was quite rightly given to KUUN by ACE Estate Group Co., Ltd. where technology provides peace of mind and convenience for its residents. All visitors are screened with smartphone technology and underground electrical fibre optic gives residents the enjoyment they need in the comfort of their home. Features that in the future will soon be the norm.
Smart technologies are also becoming apparent in the workplace too. Prove Kaset-Nawamin by Altitude Development Co., Ltd. was earmarked as the Best Home Office Development through its integration of technology to help promote itself as the ideal working environment. Just like in the residential field, buildings need to adapt to consumer needs for the sake of longevity and to increase the potential for growth in the short and long term. >>See the project review have smart technologies.
