the double height small 80-90 sqm duplexes (with private pools) at Ashton are great (but also more expensive than units at M Silom)...not really fair to compare

http://www.ashtoncondo.com/main.html#building

[also, if smoother access to BTS is important to you..the walk is through Soi 38 is crowded/filled with vendors and tables and stuff...you know what I mean if you have ever been drunk and totally hungry after a late nite out in Thonglor or Ekkamai ...]

Is there a separate thread for this project? Never seen it before.
Those 11X sqm. corner duplex with pools looks yummy. But are they only on the lower floors? If so, that's a shame!

How about M Silom compared to a 2 bedroom 126m2 unit at Millennium Residence. Just went there today and the facilities are great with 3m ceilings and decent specifications.

M Silom in general, has bigger/more expensive units than Ashton. Ashton's pool duplex unit is smaller and less expensive than M Silom's 3 bedroom, and the 1/2 bedrooms at M Silom are bigger than at Ashton too.

I have heard stories of bad construction/management at Millennium Residences.

There have been some with practically no problems in the past few years. But a whole bunch of them from projects like Millennium Residences/Watermark Chaophraya. Reading the prakard.com forums (assuming one can read Thai) is a very good indication.

Another difference is that there has been seemingly little effort to correct problems in Millennium Residences (resale prices have plummeted there, as a result). Watermark was at least fixed by MJD and other than that project, they have a pretty good track record.

What kind of problems are we talking about here? Is it that severe - enough to effect resale prices?

I dont understand, so in conclusion I should stay away from Millennium Residence? I really like the project though in my opinion since theres a 3 bedroom unit on like floor 30-40 which is better than floor 19 for my M Silom unit and the price is below or around 15 million

It's not entirely construction problems, it's a combination of that, poor management and bad sales. The resale prices for Millennium Residences, though, are below 70,000 baht per sqm, which is exceedingly low for that area.

And melrocks, I'd stay away from Millennium residences unless you want good price per square meter, in a decent location, but in a poorly built/managed and hard to resell condo.

Also, I'm not sure if you're doing this already or not, but if you're buying a condo resale, don't look at the ones for sale on english sites. They're way overpriced, usually. Look at the Thai sites (prakard.com is the largest) and find someone who can translate, if necessary.

Thanks for the info, I'm thai and I am looking at only Prakard.com for units.

What are the criteria that you're looking for? (ie, location, BTS/MRT access, lease vs. free hold, size, price/sqm, etc.)

There doesn't seem to be any good new high end high rise projects that satisfies me fully. I'm looking for a nice modern freehold condominium with around 150,000-200,000psqm 2 bedroom unit for around 15 million baht. At first I thought M Silom would satisfy my needs but later after looking at many other projects I think there would be many better projects out there. Any projects you would recommend that have not been completed for over five years?

You're asking the wrong person for advice - I've been living abroad for over 15 years now (currently in HK). Why not ask Mr.Chad? He seems to know every building in town

What about the 185? I'm sure 15M can get you a respectable unit there!

The Met offers great privace and great location,i only think it is too big but not crowded.


You can try try some units at Empire tower on Naratiwat-sathorn as well The River for the views, with your budget u can get a great high floor unit.


Q house lang suan is underpriced as well to my opinino with and upside...

there is also Royal saladaeng for big units in good prices still from the developer
