Riva ViewRiva Grande_Day-001

A full perspective Supalai Riva Grande

If anyone ever drove by Bank of Ayudhaya Headquarter Rama 3 that is set along the bend of Chao Phraya River, an unbroken expanse of abandoned construction site with 4 ragged, pending towers must have once caught their eyes. They’re in fact an unfinished, core part of the condominium complex development going by the name of SV Gardens, under close supervision of the developer named SV, and originally built on the riverside plot of 11 rais. Over 20 years they stood with no further development, halted in the aftermath of Thailand’s 1997 great recession that adversely struck down the developer’s finance. After a lengthy hiatus coupled with several transfers to new developers and long-lasting offer of sale of this project, the time finally came when the land was in order for real use and Supalai developer snapped it up to reform into a condo project of 3 high-rise towers named Supalai Riva Grande. At present, the condo development is in the stage of destruction of land to prepare for reuse. Making a debut in 2015, this is one of the masterpiece projects Supalai has ever conducted.

Supalai Riva Grande boasts its magnificent location ensuring a resident’s promising life with convenient accesses to transporation roads, BRT transit, outside amenities, and so forth. Set against the backdrop of Chao Phraya River offering an expansive steam scenic view on the beautiful river bend, Building A also allows for a great panoramic sight of Bang Kachao the lung of the city visibly from lowest to highest floors. The condo has a comprehensive series of ultra-modern lifestyle amenities with a large swimming pool orienting opposite the river as the most stunning feature.

This marvelously appointed condominium was for sale only for a moderate starting price and per-sq.m. price if comparing to nearby condos around it. Therefore it can be also expected of low pro-rated return. But it makes an impeccable home for any owner-occupiers rather than a profitable investment most property investors were looking for. Renting it out is definitely out of the question because it produces a very low rental yield rate, also because this area isn’t in great request.
