2 The-Parkland-Charan---Pinklao

Narai Property Co., Ltd., one of the developers with over 20 years of experience in this field, who has been launching medium to high-end products ever since the establishment, now spawned a subsidiary company Naraya, to penetrate low-end segment. The company launches Parkland Charan – Pinklao, a high-rise condominium with a proximity to MRT bang Yi Khan, a new station in suburban area of the MRT Blue Line’s extension. The location could be erected with 3 to 4-million-priced condominiums; however, Parkland Charan – Pinklao’s starting price stays under THB 2 million. With this price, consumers with the salary range THB 25,000 – 30,000 are achievable to own a unit here through a mortgage.

Project Details

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

The Parkland Charan – Pinklao is a new-launch project with the proximity to the MRT Blue Line’s extension, being erected just 20 metres from Bang Yi Khan Station. The project comprises a line of 3 buildings with the total unit 1,784 rooms, and has a communal area of over 3 rai in the landscape. Facilities are located on the 4th floor, the level that is connected by every building.

The Parkland Charan Pinklao2.1 DSC04311-002

The distance between the building and the main road is around 40 metres, a fair distance from the cars’ noise.

The Parkland Charan Pinklao3 DSC04308-003

The total distance from the project’s entrance to the innermost Building C is around 300 metres, meaning residents in Building C would have to walk 600 metres each day in-and-out of the project. Building C, thus, balance this disadvantage with an Olympic-sized swimming pool, Double Sky Lounge on 21st-22nd floor, and rooftop garden with 360-degree city view. The common area on the 4th floor is also reachable from all buildings with within 300-metre distance.

Building B’s 4th floor’s facilities comprise Sunken Seat zone and Triple Sport Facility – Fitness, Yoga Fly and Sauna separated for men and women. Meanwhile, Build A has the least facilities but located the closest to the project entrance. There’s a moderate-size garden and multiple retails in this building area.

The Parkland Charan Pinklao5 DSC04312-004

The first three floors of each building are the parking lot, and each level has an elevator to deliver you on every residential floor (5th – 22nd floor). Each building has 3 passenger elevators with different accommodation ratio: Building A 1:181; Building B 1:186; Building C 1:228. The unit per floor on each level is around 25-32 units.

 

Projects position.

The project faces toward the northwest, leaning toward the west, where Charan Sanitwong Road lies ahead in front. And the back of the project would, of course, face toward the east. With this position, Building C’s units on the higher floors will have the view of Rama VIII Bridge; especially those located above the 15th floor could possibly offer a view of Chao Phraya River. Meanwhile, Building A and Building B offers only a glimpse of Rama VII Bridge and the whole view of cityscape is blocked by the Building C.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

North: next to a 3-storey commercial building. Nearby is Charan Sanitwong 44, a street comprised of a few townhouses and single houses. The units facing toward this side view have the view of MRT Blue Line mass transit.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

East: the project’s innermost area is near Chanransanitwong 44 and 42; the two streets comprise 3-storey and single houses.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

South: next to Charan Sanitwong 42. There’s an underway project a fair distance from this side.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

West: Charan Sanitwong Road. There’s a U-Turn just before reaching the project’s entrance. The opposite side is a gas station which can potentially be replaced by a residential project in the near future, due to its location next to the MRT Blue Line.

Master Plan

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

Parkland Charan – Pinklao has an extensive master plan. Most units are facing toward either north or south direction. A portion of units in Building C are facing toward the east with the view of Rama VII Bridge; the building consists of units with minimum size of 30 square metre to the largest unit type. The 4th floor is the facilities area connected by every building and has a Double Sky Lounge elevator that elevate you to the rooftop garden on Building C. Up there, you can get yourself enraptured by the 360-degree view of the city vista.

Floor Plan Tower B

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

Residential units’ location starts from the 5th floor. 4th-6th’s floor plan are the same, having units facing either north or south direction. Facilities are located in a 3-storey building connected to the main building – Fitness, Yoga Fly, and Sauna for men and women separately.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

On the 7th floor, some units face toward the view of Rama VIII Bridge. The higher levels, the less number of units facing this view in Building B. Above the 18th floor, there are none.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

There are 25 units in average on 19th-22nd floor.

Floor Plan Tower C

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

Building C is located in the innermost area of the master plan, standing in L-Shape with 7units facing toward Rama VIII Bridge view. However, there’re only 5 units facing the mentioned view on the 20th.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

The 21st and 22nd floor has only 2 units facing directly to the east (Rama VII Bridge view) – 1-Bedroom unit and 2-Bedroom unit. The absence of other units is replaced with Double Sky Lounge which takes a decent space on this floor. The rooftop is adorned with garden where residents from any building can come and cherish the atmosphere.

Location

ศักยภาพทำเลโครงการ The Park Land จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

MRT Blue Line’s route encompasses the inner city area and intersects with other mass transit lines.

At present, besides BTS Green Line which runs as a core transportation mode for Bangkok citizens, a great number of new mass transit lines are being carried out for a broader network. The emerging mass transit lines expansion has stimulated the demand for real estate developments in the areas nearby. However, some locations are so premium that its residential project must come with an expensive unit price. Among the newborn mass transit lines, MRT Blue Line’s extension is one of the prominent event receiving great interests from the public. With its establishment on Charan Sanitwong Road, a long passage in a suburban area, the cost for real estate developments here is still low, helping developers to come with an affordable-price units. The MRT Blue Line’s extension, when completed, will run in a square-shaped route, encircling the city area as shown in the picture above. This means all the mass transit lines running in the city, including the existing BTS Green Lines, will have an interchange station transiting to the MRT Blue Line. In other words, MRT Blue Line will give The Parkland Charan – Pinklao’s residents a great accessibility to different zones in the city.

The Parkland จรัญฯ – ปิ่นเกล้า

Appraised land value on Charan Sanitwong Road, still a moderate range for developers to come up with affordable-price project; condominiums with the starting price below THB 3 million, for example.

Analysis

Charan Sanitwong Road becomes a new prospective territory for real estate developments due to the coming of MRT Blue Line’s extension. In spite of the upgrade value in terms of land price, the road is still obscured for the future prosperity. Many developers chose to launch projects close to a public transit on this road within 500-metre radius. In the past few years, some projects are even launched next by the public transit on Charan Sanitwong Road, which The Parkland Charan – Pinklao is one of those that seized a land plot in this potential domain.

From Bang Yi Khan Station, it takes around 10-12 stops down to reach Sathorn CBD; however, that is only a half an hour. The project is worth buying for those who can capitalise on this upcoming public transit, and has a limited budget to purchase a condominium unit in the city area. Another plus is that there won’t be too many people crowding on the station, as locals normally drive their own cars on this road.

Compared to the MRT Pueple Line zone, this zone seems brighter to prosper. While comparing to other projects on Charan Sanitwong Road, The Parkland Charan – Pinklao has an advantage on the number of facilities included. The great inclusion of facilities would help enhancing the sense of privacy in the project despite the massive residential units.

Summary

The Parkland Charan – Pinklao is conceived as a project launched for suburbanites. The project is located on Charan Sanitwong Road, with a hub of workplaces being close in distance – the prominent place in the proximity is Siriraj Hospital. Another key aspect in drawing in demand for this project is its extremely short distance to Bang Yi Khan Station, one of the stations in MRT Blue Line’s extension.

The Parkland Charan – Pinklao can be reached through 3 transportation modes: personal vehicle, public transit, and boat service. Nevertheless, a concern is lied in driving your own car here. There’re a total of 1,784 units in this project with parking lot available only 51% of that number. With Bang Yi Khan Station being constructed at the moment, Charan Sanitwong Road is now narrowed down from 3 to 2 lanes. With this fact, there could be a bottle neck in front of the project during the rush hour. However, when Bang Yi Khan Station is completed, the road will be back in to 3 lanes, and even smooth the traffic flow with another commute option of the mass transit line.

The Parkland Charan – Pinklao’s prominent attribute is its heavy inclusion of facilities. With the maintenance fees at THB 45 per square metre, it is hardly to find this many facilities in other projects. 45 Baht seems to an insufficient income for the juristic person to leverage on for maintaining the project’s well-being; however, with the number of residential units, it’s not a small amount of earning. Notwithstanding that, all 1,784 units are not going to be filled; and if the number of residents happens to be lower than expected, the maintenance fees could be raised.

If the project happens to raise the maintenance fees in the future, you need to observe how well they maintain the facilities, and most importantly check whether the facilities area is crowded or not. If the facilities area gets very crowded on a daily basis, you may need to consider the level of satisfaction you have toward this fact. If you don’t often use the facilities, it is not a big concern. But if you do, try benchmarking with other projects before making a decision, because 1,784 units is not a small number.
