Bangkok is notorious for its traffic. The city quickly comes to a standstill during commuter times as the roads get clogged up with cars. Travel times to and from work become unnecessary long as the pollution from the cars lingers over the roads and residents shy away from this mode of transport. This boasts the capital’s thriving and very reliable mass transit network, which is currently undergoing mass expansion. Opening up new areas of Bangkok, developers and astute investors are eying up locations close to this vital bloodline of the city as the value of its connectivity is appreciated now more than ever.
For central locations where there is a shortage of land, existing plots close to the BTS Skytrain and MRT underground are proving to be a real hit. From glossy shopping malls such as Central Embassy by Central Group to smaller concepts such as Summer Hill, a low-density version dubbed a community mall.
Central Embassy proudly sits on one of the most expensive parcels of land. Easily accessible by foot from the BTS at both Phloen Chit and Chidlom, this multi-dimensional shoppers’ paradise secured the Best Universal Design Development in the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2018 thanks to its slick design allowing the easy and free movement of its visitors regardless of their level of mobility. Mixing the biggest names in fashion and lifestyle, alongside entertainment options that include a plethora of restaurants, world-class cinema and a designated relaxation area, Open House, on the upper floor, Central Embassy caters for a host of individuals who want to make the most of their time here. Enabling visitors to do everything all in one area makes life easy allowing people to concentrate on more important things in life than sitting in traffic.
At the other end of the spectrum is Summer Hill that has recently received a Special Recognition for Community Retail award proving that success stories do not necessarily need to be big. Rising land prices are squeezing homes into even smaller spaces. Coincidentally residents are venturing to work and socialize, such as Summer Hill to meet rather than at home. With direct access from Prakhanong BTS Skytrain Station, this convenient community mall reinforces the desires for Bangkok’s population to bypass the traffic and make the most of the services that sit abreast of the public transportation network. This one-stop shop has places to eat, get fit, work and shop.
Both concepts work due to the choice on offer. There is really is no need to travel far to getting everything achieved whether that is to live, work or play. Plus their popularity is not expected to slow down anytime soon either, as the thirst of easy accessibility across Bangkok continues to head upwards. >>Click More…Where Is The Best Unit’s Location In A New Condominium Project?
