Supalai Icon Sathorn is a 56-storey (not included rooftop) luxury condominium with 787 units. The project offers a variety of unit types, and is close to the BTS, MRT, BRT as well as the Rama 4 and Sathorn expressway entries. The starting price is 8.2 MB.
As the news on The Mall Group’s land reform plan to boost investment went public, there were significant attentions from mass public, property developers, and investors toward it. The plan involves altering 100 rais of land around Bang Na Intersection into a large-scale shopping centre three times as large as Siam Paragon. On behalf of this opportunity, Property Perfect launched a new condominium project called The Sky Sukhumvit, a sequence of a project series “The Sky Line Collection”. The Sky Sukhumvit is to be settled on 9 rais of the land issued by the land bank, lying adjacent to the forthcoming Bangkok Mall. It’s expected that The Sky Sukhumvit will reap a tremendous popularity when this whole area is developed to one vital commercial spot.

Dating back 10 years, what is seen to be an urban community at Bang Na intersection today once was merely a vast underdeveloped land with next to nothing. Only little-known but common notion about this rural area was the local residents called it the borderline gate to Eastern Thailand because the major roads laid straight toward the east. For lifestyle, the majority of the suburban residents usually travelled on the Bangkok-Bangprakong slow train (also known as Whan-Yen) as they lived in the period when life wasn’t as intertwined with technology as is today. Some kids would ride back home on a tour-class public bus owned by Transport Co.,Ltd.
In light of the endeavours of the largest mall operator to turn around this enormous land with untapped opportunities, a number of residential units, condos, shopping malls, and other lifestyle places have emerged. Numerous van taxis today can be easily found near highways parking along the footpath to serve any pedestrians. In addition to The Mall’s shopping centre development initiative, there was an impending BTS dark-green line extension project by Bangkok Mass Transit System PLC (BTSC) that needs to be taken into account. Furthermore, Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) has made an announcement that its Bhiraj Tower Phase 2 project, also known as Bhiraj Buri @ BITEC, is coming soon in 2016. By virtue of all these, it’s expected that the number of office buildings, employers, and commercial centre in this area will shoot up from 2016 onwards, accompanying the construction completion of Bangkok Mall. More importantly, the values and selling prices of properties and lands within this zone are expected to burgeon by approximately 16% down the road.
The greatest benefits about this region centre on its proximity to the best mass transit and public roads systems in Bangkok. There are several road paths the residents of The Sky Sukhumvit can take to get to their desired destinations shortly, including Bang Na-Trad-Srinakarin-Samut Prakarn connecting roads, Burapha Vithi tollway, among others. The Sky Sukhumvit is geographically positioned 300 metres away from Udom Suk BTS station, where the skywalk convoying the residents directly from the condo to the BTS platform is currently under construction. The skywalk will be available before long.
On Nut-Samut Prakarn Dark Green Line: Any resident can walk about 300 metres from the condo to Udom Suk BTS. One can also get there by either public bus or motorcycle (charging THB 20/ride) at his or her convenience. The skywalk will be available soon.
- Public Transit: BTS On Nut-Samut Prakarn dark green line – any residents only need to walk approximately 300 metres from the condo to Udom Suk BTS station. One can also get there by either public bus or motorcycle (charging THB 20/ride) at his or her convenience. The skywalk will be available soon.
- Personal Vehicle : Drive along Sukhumvit main road, past Soi Sukhumvit 101 and Sukhumvit 101/1 until arriving at Soi Sukhumvit 103, then keep left. Go straight at a slower pace ready to make a left at Soi Sukhumvit 103/4. The Sky Sukhumvit is situated at the forefront of that street.

The highlights of this community include Central Bang Na, Big C, Lotus, Mega Bang Na, Chic Republic, Bangkok Mall (upcoming) and Bhiraj Buri @ BITEC (upcoming) offering a great delight.
