Project Review: The Line Sukhumvit 101

  • 29 November 2016

BTS Sansiri Holding Three Limited, a joint venture company between premier real estate developer and BTS Skytrain, has launched a cutting-edge high-rise condominium, to be located on Sukhumvit Road, just 250 metres away from BTS Punnawithi. While the proximity to a public transportation might be the renowned characteristic of THE LINE series, The Line Sukhumvit 101, the new one, has awe-inspiring differences in its context. For example, there are Co-Kitchen, the common area where you can have a mini party setting, Co-Working Space with full equipment and exclusive service, and multi-sport court with changeable LED light, the first innovation being used in South East Asia. Besides, the ceiling height in residential units are up to 3.4 – 5.5 metres high, creating utmost airy sensations to every unit. Residents on the upper floors will also have the view of Bangkajao natural expanse, another viewpoint besides the splendour cityscape. The project is expected to be fully completed in 2020, while the current starting price is just 3.55 million baht.

Project Details

Concept

Freedom In Everything is the concept which has been incorporated in The Line Sukhumvit 101. Whether it’s the spacious duplex unit with ceiling height of 3.4 – 5.5 metres, or the co-living facilities area that can lift your satisfactions to an unheard feeling, the project gives the highest level of freedom in every square inch.

Architectural Design

“Couple Block” is the architectural concept, rendering two synchronising towers that represents two dancers standing close with appropriate distance between each other. The front building is light-coloured and the back one exposes in darker tone to show more robust appearance; however, the two compose vibrant-colour vertical lines on the façade, standing for individuality of each resident that diverge from each other, but still converge to create a greater harmony in this sanctuary as a whole.

Facilities

Co-Living Space is the core concept that permeates in all facility areas, meaning the space is shared to create a harmonious exhilaration, divided into three domains as follows:

Co-Lifestyle: Co-Kitchen where anyone can set up a little party and boast your cooking skills, and Garden Pavillion on the 5th floor with natural settings for you to unwind and have a tranquil down time.

Co-Working Space: Great place to have absolute concentration on your tasks, fully equipped with office facilities including LED TV, whiteboard, 24-hour Wi-Fi internet and exclusive service to soothe your operation

Co-Recreation: Olympic-size swimming pool with panoramic view, Game Room with pinball, air hockey table, etc., and the glass-floor multi-sport court with underneath LED light to adjust the field according to your sport type; the innovation first being used in South East Asia.

Location

Outer Sukhumvit 

The Line Sukhumvit 101

Outer Sukhumvit with less traffic density compared to Inner Sukhumvit

Renamed from Bangkok-Samut Prakarn Road, Outer Sukhumvit Road was the major route which Bangkok people took to access the eastern regions in the past, including Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi Province, etc. The crucial revitalization occurred with the arrival of BTS Skytrain; since then, a number of community malls were consequently popping up, as well as high-rise condominiums which are normally built adjoined to Sukhumvit main road. However, Outer Sukhumvit, a stretch of road from BTS Phra Khanong to BTS Bearing, also consists low-rise condominiums, but they are obligatory to be located in the alleys regarding the government’s restrictions. The price of condominiums in Outer Sukhumvit, in general, ranges from 100,000 to 200,000 baht per square metre, and this number tends to surge as this area embraces more and more new-trend developments.

 

Location 

The Line Sukhumvit 101

The project is located on Sukhumvit Road, 250 metres from BTS Punnawithi

It’s an iconic distinction of THE LINE condos to have the residential projects located within a short distance to a public transit; likewise, The Line Sukhumvit 101 is located on Sukhumvit Road, just 250 metres from BTS Punnawithi, a short stroll for residents to start the journey to workplace on a daily basis. In lifestyle aspect, there are several community malls situated in Sukhumvit 101 Alley, and an upcoming mixed use development “Whizdom 101,” pending to be constructed near Sukhumvit 101/1 Alley in 2017; this mixed use project will also have a skywalk linking to BTS Punnawithi Station. In addition, the project is also close to Chalerm Maha Nakhon Expressway’s ingress and Central Bangna department store.

Lifestyle Amenities

The Line Sukhumvit 101

Lifestyle and fashions are entering Outer Sukhumvit

 

The urban lifestyle vibes have expanded from Inner Sukhumvit to here, resulted in several community malls, situated in Sukhumvit 101 Alley, and an upcoming mixed-use project around Sukhumvit 101/1, Whizdom 101. However, there are still local restaurants which have been serving eateries here for a long time. Hua Seng Hong, for example, is a renowned Chinese restaurant situated near Sukhumvit 101 Alley. In the stated alley, there are several street restaurants, but the famous ones are the Vietnamese and Chinese Roll Noodle Soup (Guay Jub); a lot of Thai celebrities come to the latter one occasionally. For those who love coffee cafes, there are a few located in Piyarom Place, the community mall that is soon to be replaced with Whizdom 101. If you need to find peace, there is also Thammamongkol Temple, located in Punnawithi 20 Alley.

Analysis

 

According to land price appraisal (2016-2019), lands in Sukhumvit 101 Alley are priced between 60,000 – 160,000 baht per square wah, but those in Sukhumvit 101/1 Alley are priced higher at 110,000 – 160,000 baht per square wah, as there’s an upcoming mixed-use development Whizdom 101 pending to be built there. The Line Sukhumvit 101, which is located closer to Sukhumvit 101 Alley, could conform to the lower land price range; however, the project sits next to the main road, where land prices are totally different from those in the alleys. For the average rent price, renting a 1-bedroom unit out here will earn you around 20,000 baht per month. The number of residential demand is also high in this area, as residences in Inner Sukhumvit are extremely expensive and people are looking for more affordable property, especially those with close distance to a public transportation.

Summary

The Line Sukhumvit 101’s outstanding points are its proximity to BTS Punnawithi, voluminous-ceiling-height units, and cutting-edge facilities. The project responds to the market trend with sophisticated co-working space, which offers LED TVs, whiteboard, and service to smooth your operation. However, the exceptional one is the glass-floor multi-sport court with LED lights underneath; the lights can change to create the field according to your sport type. Second, residential units are having the ceiling height above the benchmark, ranging from 3.2 metres of 1-bedroom unit to 5.5 metres of duplex unit; the height level, thus, implements the room to be much airy. Lastly, followed the mission of THE LINE, the project is located just 250 metres away from BTS Punnawithi, a convenience for urbanites to travel to workplace on a daily basis. One downside here could be the fact that Outer Sukhumvit is still not as prosperous as the Inner Sukhumvit (Thonglor and Ekkamai), but, through time, this domain will surely be.
