Simple, contemporary but posh. The infrastructure is contoured with horizontal lines. The condo’s outer appearance strikes anyone as utterly modern with wondrous white glory at the instant. On the outside the building is inclusive of exterior walls and façade panelled with white marble throughout, together with grand mullion-less glass windows positioned with different angles refracting light on each other’s sides beautifully. The frontage of each unit is greatly wide compared to the average condo unit providing for a whole scene of Lumpini Park. While the standard units have an open space of 3-3.5metre wide, 1-bedroom units with 55 square metre space have a frontage of 8.10 metre wide packed with a 4.5 metre wide balcony. The 2-bedroom units each are 16 metre wide and have the best sightseeing spot.

Views of Every Direction

Saladaeng One_East view

The view from the east provides a good vantage point for seeing into Lumpini garden with a cityscape on the horizon. Near to the condo, Sofitel So Bangkok and LH Bank can be seen up close.

Saladaeng One_NorthEast view

The North Eastern view best encapsulates the entire enclosure of Lumpini garden with nothing hindering from seeing.

Saladaeng One_North view

The view from the north consists of tall buildings set against the background of Lumpini park.

Saladaeng One_South view

From the south, an unbroken view of the city together with green space comes into sight.

Saladaeng One_West view

On the west a sightseeing spot offers a unique and beautiful sight of the city with buildings lining up according to their height from lowest to highest as overlooking from the balcony into the horizon.

On 31st fl are located the library, business lounge and sky terrace.

Type 1A-1 [1 bedroom & 55.49 sqm] @ Sales Gallery


A wooden door with lever as the front door.


The doorway much resembles Genkan, a Japanese-styled entryway recessed into the floor. It’s made of black stone, whereas the remaining floor is paved with laminate wood (except for the kitchen that is tiled with white marble).

Saladaeng One_1bed


Light switches are wall-fitted by the door.


An L-shaped cabinet is placed covering around the corner of the kitchen and provides for hob, hood, sink and faucet. While the sample room shows a few more appliances like laundry machine and dryer inlet into the long closet with the refrigerator, only refrigerator is offered in the actual selling unit.



A tall shoe cabinet is close by the kitchen door as well as the light switches.


The real selling unit doesn’t include any furniture in the living room, except for TV line and outlet wired on the specific side of the room. The room has glass wall windows with no muttins and only a few mullions allowing for a good unobstructed view.



The balcony spares a perfect space for placing a compressor. The idea that putting the compressor to the home’s frontage will reduce the appeal of the house should be the least of the resident’s worries as the latticework attached to the balcony will provide a cover-up for its hide nor hair.

There is this porch-like corner for eating out, stretch and let off steam, enclosed with glass rails fencing and located outside of the bedroom.

Saladaeng (also Silom) is one of the oldest financial districts in Bangkok, having existed long before Sukhumvit’s central business district was even born and famous. In its day, Silom was heavily populated, filled with countless commercial buildings, which left too little space for residential development. In the end the central business district was extended into the region around Sukhumvit line, later becoming the most important part of our economy as we all come to know it today.

Because the Saladaeng region lacks space for developing a condominium, the developers negotiated with the proprietors in the purchase of their old buildings to demolish and restructure into condominiums for sale. There is a continuous demand for the condo in this area even at the seemingly unattainable price.

In terms of transportation, the major street running through Silom area is Rama 4-Sukhumvit road, which grants convenient access to all possible destinations in every direction. Though the traffic was severely and constantly heavy during peak hours.

Saladaeng One is located on Soi Saladaeng 1, 80 metre off Rama 4 road but also conveniently accessible from Silom road. It’s 400 metre away from MRT Lumpini station as well as 600 metre from BTS Saladaeng and MRT Silom stations. Given all convenient accesses to transportations, residents at Saladaeng One can travel away without any difficulty.

Saladaeng One map

120 metre from the condo, which is easy to get to. The condo gains an advantage in terms of increased value for having a mind-captivating park view as well as close distance from it, which is strongly demanded by the buyers. Perhaps, the reason why luxury condominiums look even more luxurious is because they settle riverfront, parkfront, or by a large open-green space.

Getting There

  1. Drive along Rama 4 towards the intersection between Sathorn and Witthayu roads. Pass through the intersection and make a left onto Soi Saladaeng 1 near U Chu Ling Bldg and on the opposite side to Lumpini Park. The condo is on the left.
  2. If coming from Sam Yan, drive along Rama 4, get close to the right when U Chu Ling Bldg comes into view on your right, and shortly a junction to turn will be shown. After turning around, get ready to take the very left onto Soi Saladaeng 1.
  3. If coming to Saladaeng One by BTS/MRT, drop off at BTS Saladaeng or MRT Silom station. From then onwards, you can either take motorcycle (10 Baht) and come right up to the condo, or get there by foot, by walking all the way to Soi Saladaeng, where Tisco Bldg is located by, and going down the street almost to the other end of it.

Soi Saladaeng

  1. Exit MRT Lumpini through the gate leading to Q House Bldg and walk along Rama 4 road past U Chu Ling Bldg until making an arrival at Soi Saladaeng 1.

It was revealed the average rental price of high-end condominiums across Silom falls in the range of THB 800-1,000/square metre. With that in mind, if the initial purchasing price of a unit is THB 270,000/sqm, then the yearly return will be yielded at 3.56-4.44%.

Even though the yield is not substantial, there is a significant room for growth in capital gain down the road, especially while the economy is still up for increased land values and there is a limit in supply of condo units near to Saladaeng One, which stimulates the consumer demand for it.

According to CBRE, the average capital gain of the condominiums in proximity to Lumpini Park is approximately 170% over a 10-year period or 17% annually, computed from the condo’s selling prices of THB 100,000/sqm in 2004 and THB 270,000/sqm in 2015.

Saladaeng One is located in the heart of the city known for the most rapid transit system in the country, so travelling away couldn’t be any better. The condo offers a panorama of Lumpini Park found on every floor on one side of the buildings. Units with park view is also said to yield more return on investment in a long term than the units with city view because of the shift in demand towards park-oriented units. Long term investment in Saladaeng One should be taken seriously rather than short term one because each unit was initially priced really high due to the significant cost of construction be paid back by merely renting out.
