New Project Preview: KnightsBridge Prime Sathorn

  • Sitth Chongprasobtam
  • 8 September 2016

Knightsbridge Prime Sathorn is a top-brand project from Origin Property PLC., the second eye-catching project with city-location, after the succession of Notting Hill Charoenkrung. The project offers a walkable distance to BTS Chong Nonsi and convenient accessibilities to Silom Road, Rama IV Road, Rama III, and further to Sukhumvit downtown. One of the highlights also lies in the options for conservative or modern living, through monoplex and duplex units respectively; the blend of the two unit types also complements this 43-storey building to have the actual height equal to a 53-storey development. Despite the medium-luxury concept of the residence, the project comes with the starting price at 3 MB; this could be the rarest supply ever born in this prime area.

Project Details

Project Design

Knights Bridge Prime Sathorn "Z"

The picture illustrates different view each zone of the floorplan will have. In addition, the west view also covers the majestic Mahanakhon Tower

 

As this area is a CBD which comprise a lot of high-rise buildings, KnightsBridge Prime Sathorn has its floorplans designed in Z-Shape to offer every unit a 200-degree city-skyline view without obtrusive skyscrapers, in the best possible manner.

KnightsBridge Prime Sathorn is a 43-storey condominium, but its actual height is equal to a 53-storey one due to the mixture of monoplex and duplex units in the building. Each floor has only 26 units which caters a great sense of privacy.

Furthermore, one of the project’s uniqueness is the automated parking, on 1st-13th floor, which can accommodate 506 cars. When you arrive at the residence, just park your car at the spot, and the elevator will take your car automatically to the parking. When you need your car back, just press the elevator button, the elevator will take the car back to ground floor.

Location

In general, Sathorn and Silom are the most cherished location among all CBD, in the eye of foreigners. The two areas comprise world-class offices and 95% of the available office spaces have been occupied. Sathorn and Silom are currently running out of land plots, and those available are priced at extreme cost around 1.5 MB per square wah. Consequently, the new-development-launch rate in these areas are just 4.7% compared to the total number in Bangkok.

KnightsBridge Prime Sathorn is located on Narathiwas Rajanakarin 13 Alley, which is currently occupied as Shell gas station. The project is approximately 650 metres from Sathorn-Narathiwas Junction and 800 metres from BTS Chong Nonsi.

Routes 1

Important roads, renowned offices, and public transits in the project’s proximity

The project’s position allows easy access to Sathorn, Silom and Rama IV Road, and you can proceed further to Sukhumvit Road through Witthayu Road.

The interesting points about the project’s location is the fact that it is possibly the last feasible land plot in this proximity for any developments; and if you want to reach Rama IV Road, there’s a shortcut passage “Soi Yenakat,” leads you directly to the road, instead of taking Sathorn Road which has a higher density of traffic.

Shortcut to Rama 4

KnightsBridge Prime Sathorn will sit on the last available land plot in this proximity, a large expanse of land in this area is the nearby Rajamangala University of Technology Krungtep

Analysis

Knightsbridge Prime Sathorn is the true distinction in this prime CBD. The developer has a different mindset in terms of price and location for this luxury high-rise condominium. First, although the project will be located in Sathorn CBD, the actual position is possibly the last feasible land plot in the proximity; meaning the project holds an advantage of being the latest development in those arrays. Second, the project differentiates in pricing with the starting price around 130,000 Baht/Sq.m. for the unit 24 Sq.m., which is much lower than the average price of condominiums in Sathorn and Silom at 200,000 baht/Sq.m. What’s interesting is the fact that the project is designed in a medium-luxury living experience, in spite of the price differences. This advantage offers a wider scope of target market; you don’t need to be a millionaire or famous investor to own a unit in this luxury residence. Compared to the competitors such as Ashton Silom, M Silom, The Bangkok and Nara 9 which has the starting price at 8, 10, 10, and 6 MB respectively, Knightsbridge Prime Sathorn’s is just 3 MB. In addition, the lower starting price is not the only plus, the rent price is also lower than the average, which means a greater scope of lessees are in your hand. In details, the average rent price per month are 17,500 Baht for Monoplex 24 Sq.m., 23,000 Baht for Monoplex 30 Sq.m., 27,500 Baht for Duplex 37 Sq.m., and 33,000 Baht for Duplex 44 Sq.m.
