  • 16 September 2016

Anyone who have been watching the real estate market closely would have recognised “The Line,” a high-rise condominium series of BTS and Sansiri joint venture, who display the residences’ uniqueness through the convenience of nearby public transits. This year, the great joint venture made a significant move; they have incorporated the concept of “location is everything” in another condominium series “The Base.” Named as The Base Garden Rama 9, this new asset is a 36-storey condominium, designed with the core concept of natural integrations, a high density of natural surroundings which blend with living experience in harmony. Regarded the mission of the developers, the project will be located 700 m. from ARL Ramkhamhaeng, the elevated public transit which could take you to Suvarnabhumi Airport, MRT Blue Line and BTS Green Line. The project is located on Rama IX Road, not far away from the strategic position around Rama IX Junction. We are waiting to see whether if The Base Garden Rama 9 can make a phenomenal one-day sold out as The Line series or not.

The project’s sales gallery which gives a hint of how the project’s design will come out

The Base Garden Rama 9 is the first distinction among its series “The Base” as the project is developed by the joint-venture of BTS and Sansiri, the renowned collaboration of the high-demand series “The Line.” Likewise, the designs and materials usage are upgraded and capable of delivering a higher living experience.

The architectural design raised up the building in copper-gold tone, mixed with different shades of blue and grey from the windows of the façade. These windows are meticulously selected, function as well heat insulators. Furthermore, the architecture is designed in Z-Shape instead of the usual parallel design, allowing each unit zone to have its own view, rather than facing each other.

The facilities embrace the core of bringing the essence of nature into the living experiences. To illustrate, the fully-equipped fitness offers a natural view for residents to enjoy while exercising. Moreover, the library is designed in an open space for readers to feel the natural surroundings in relaxing ambiance. Meanwhile, the lobby has selected natural materials such as wood and marble, and has its prominent design in the crystal chandelier which gives a sense of elegance.

The unit per floor are around 20 rooms, mixed between 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units along the double corridor. There are 4 passenger elevators to deliver residents in timely fashion and the parking that can accommodate 40% of the residential units, excluded double parking.

Location

 

sasa

The project is located on Rama IX Road which is hovered above with Sirat Expressway

The Base Garden Rama 9 is located on Rama IX Road, approximately 700 m. away from ARL Ramkhamhaeng. In addition, ARL Ramkhamhaeng is one stop away from ARL Makkasan, which has a skywalk connecting to MRT Petchaburi. Moreover, 2 stops away is ARL Phaya Thai , which is the interchange station to the BTS Green Line.

Even though The Base Garden Rama 9 is not located on the most desired position, Rama IX Junction, Rama IX Road is still in high demands among developers and buyers as this area is transforming to be the new CBD. Besides the benefit of ARL Ramkhamhaeng, Rama IX Road also connects to other major roads such as Petchaburi, Sukhumvit and Ramkhamhaeng roads, allowing you to access different parts of the city, especially if you are expert about routes in Bangkok.

Analysis

 

Compared with luxury projects in other CBD, The Base Garden Rama 9’s starting price is lower than those by double. As a result, this creates a wider scope of buyers and investors to afford the transactions. The one-bedroom unit with size 26.5 Square metre would give you around 15,000 Baht per month by leasing. Meanwhile, 2-bedroom unit with 55 Square metre usable area give a range of return around 45,000-60,000 Baht per month in leasing. In terms of demand and supply, 75% of the units available in Ramkhamhaeng are taken; in other words, approximately 6,000 out of 8,000 units are in demands, which is a high rate of real estate needs in a certain district.

Summary

BTS and Sansiri collaboration complements The Base Garden Rama 9 to be the top product of its series. The sense of luxury is shown through the finest materials selected in both facilities and residential units. The project also integrated natural surroundings as an essential part of the living experiences. The distance to ARL Ramkhamhaeng seems to be a tough walk, therefore, owning a personal vehicle would be advantageous; more, you can drive to several important roads such as Petchaburi, Sukhumvit or Ramkhamhaeng Road. Considered the developer’s record, The Base Garden Rama 9 has a potential to have a one-day sold out phenomenon, especially with this attractive price and high residential demands in this area.
