Project Details

Ceoncept

Charoen Krung in the old days was a strategic hub full of warehouses and Sansiri was inspired to portray a characteristic of those red-brick developments into Siri Square Charoenkrung. The project, therefore, is developed with a touch of Industrial Loft design, a style of residences in Manhattan, New York that dated back to the time during Great Depression amid WWII; when Americans turned their barns and warehouses into a temporary home. The uniqueness of this design is the exterior raw red bricks and extensive height that gives an airy ambiance in the building.

Location

Siri Square Charoenkrung is located in Charoen Krung 80 Alley, Charoen Krung Road which is a thoroughfare from Chinatown area to Rama III Road at the other end. However, the project’s position is closer to Rama III Road side and it is 500 metres away from Asiatique The Riverfront. With the surrounding number of roads, Siri Square Charoenkrung’s establishment is considered to be in the Grid Road System, where residents can reach Sathorn, Silom, Krungthep Bridge and Rama III Bridge with ease, in a proximity. In general, the characteristics of Charoen Krung Road can be divided into three prominences as follows:

1. Accessibility Factors

siri square

As mentioned that the project is located in a well-connected road network, there are many more destinations you can reach with the kickoff from Charoen Krung Road. First, there are two bearby bridges crossing Chao Phraya River to the suburban areas, Krungthep Bridge and Rama III Bridge. If you want to reach Charoennakorn Road, taking Krungthep Bridge is an easier option as you can turn right at the first junction after descended from the bridge. On the other hand, if you want to just go straight towards Ratchadaphisek Road, Rama III Bridge is the preferred route due to its elevation that helps you to avoid traffic congestion on the lower ground. Furthermore, the second junction, Mahaisawan Junction, can take you further to either Rama II Road by turning left, or King Taksin The Great Monument by turning right.

If you want to reach Silom Road, go straight upward all the way. Until you notice Robinson Department Store on the left, prepare to turn right into Silom Road which is about 250 metres ahead. On the other hand, if you want to reach Sathorn, take Chan Road and turn left into Charoen Rat Road, you will arrive on Sathorn Road near BTS Surasak; you can also turn left into Narathiwas Road which is the further junction, which will lead you to Sathorn-Narathiwas Intersection, the spot full of forefront office buildings. In addition, there is Sirat Expressway ingress on the left, as you turn left into Charoen Rat Road.

Besides the transportation on the road, there’s also Sathorn Pier at BTS Saphan Taksin, which is the closest station to Siri Square Charoenkrung. The shuttle boats can take you all the way to Siriraj Hospital or Sanam Luang.

2. Living Factors

The major factor that always has an influence on buyer’s decision is the convenience in terms of lifestyle place and public utilities. In this aspect, Siri Square Charoenkrung has every resident’s need in its list.

Shopping – Asiatique The Riverfront, Robinson Department Store (Charoen Krung Road); Sena Fest, upcoming ICONSIAM (Charoen Nakhon Road); The Mall Tha Phra (Ratchadaphisek Road).

Education –  Wat Suthiwararam School, Assumption College, Shrewsbury International School (Charoen Krung Road); Bangkok Christian College (Sathorn Road)

3. Work Commuting

Siri Square Charoenkrung allows commuters to reach workplaces in Sathorn and Silom within short distance. Those who work in other areas such as Sukhumvit or Phahonyothin Road, can take the convenience of BTS Saphan Taksin which is the closest station to the project. At Saphan Taksin Station, you can also commute on shuttle boat, which can deliver you to numerous piers along Chao Phraya River

Real Estate Advancement on Charoen Krung Road

Charoen Krung has embraced multiple riverfront luxury condominiums in the past five years and Asiatique The Riverfront, the landmark of this enclave, attracts over a hundred thousand visitors in each week. More consumers are looking for great residence on Charoen Krung Road, especially high-end consumers, investors and Chinese. In consequence, some luxury developments have been debuted including Menam Residences, Chao Phraya Estate, and Notting Hill Charoenkrung which is a low-rise one.
