As a result, only a few forefront developers are able to seize the land plot in this strategic spot; and one of them if Sansiri, who collaborates with BTS to deliver a sophisticated high-rise condominium under the series “THE LINE.”

As a matter of fact, MRT Phra Ram 9 also connects to the BTS Sukhumvit Line at Asok Station and to Airport Rail Link at Makkasan Station; the latter one is a convenient way to reach Suvarnabhumi Airport. Moreover, there will be MRT Orange Line linked to the MRT Blue Line at Thailand Cultural Center, which is only one stop away from MRT Phra Ram 9; this will extend the transportation route for residents to various parts of the city.

In terms of land price, it has climbed from less than 100,000 to 150,000-160,000 baht/Sq.w. at the moment. Since the establishment of Phra Ram 9 MRT, a lot of developments and advancement followed, both from locals and foreigners. Meantime, there are upcoming mega projects which will surge the land price in this area higher; those are the mixed-use project “Singha Complex,” and “The Super Tower” from Grand Canal Land PCL, which will be the tallest skyscraper of South East Asia.

Project’s location

THE LINE Asoke-Ratchada is situated on Din Daeng Road, approximately 200 metres away from Rama IX Junction and 300 metres away from MRT Phra Ram 9.

Analysis

The project holds a significant advantage for the potential growth of rent price, due to the location that’s considered to be the yolk of Rama IX and the nearby MRT Phra Ram 9 that’s jsut 300 metres away. In general, the average rent price of a condominium unit size 27-28 Sq.m., in Rama IX area, ranges at 16,000-17,000 Baht/Month. However, with some upcoming mega projects and the ongoing progress of MRT Orange Line, owning units here will be worthwhile for eaither leasing them out, or long-run speculations, if you owned a spare money about 4 MB in the account.
