'G Land' Flies High with‘The Super Tower’ as the Worlds Mega Project

Grand Canal Land Public Company Limited or ‘G Land’, one of Thailand’s leading property developers, is making a new history through the launch of “The Super Tower” project. Developed as ASEAN’s tallest building and one of the world’s top 10 skyscrapers, The Super Tower will stand 615 meters tall and have a total of 125 floors. The Super Tower is positioned as not just a world-class attraction but also ASEAN’s new economic hub.

Mr. Yotin Boondicharern, chairman of G Land, discloses that, “Spanning over 320,000 square meters of construction area, The Super Tower is going to be the main building of The Grand Rama 9 that has already had various facilities. With The Super Tower, The Grand Rama 9 will offer not just five but six functions. In other words, The Grand Rama 9 is now set to become Bangkok’s most comprehensive project. It will be able to serve a number of tourists and businesspeople each day.”

“At present, The Grand covers 73-rai plot of land, with a total construction area of ​​1.2. Million square meters, which can serve 200,000-300,000people per day, under the BHT 100 billion investment budget. The project is located at the heart of the Rama 9 Intersection, off Ratchadapisek Road, and also next to the MRT Phra Ram 9 Station, the BTS Asoke Station, Airport Rail Link, and Sirat Expressway. Regarding many projects under The Grand Rama 9, those namely include a residential project (Belle Grand Rama 9), an office complex (G Land Tower - The 9th TOWERS - Unilever Headquarters), convention and banqueting facilities, shopping arcades (Central Plaza Grand Rama 9-The Shoppes Grand Rama 9), and a luxury hotel. These projects, managed by G Land, have generated vibrant cash flow allowing G Land to invest further and launch The Super Tower. This skyscraper is going to be the new landmark of Thailand, a world-class attraction that everyone must visit at least once in their lifetime. It will be the heart of a new economic hub too.” Mr. Yotin adds.

“Embracing the mixed used development concept, The Super Tower will divide its utility space into three zones. Firstly, it will have high-rise buildings for premium offices. Meeting international standards, these buildings will be ready to function 24 hours a day to facilitate the work flow of global firms. Target groups are those from banking industry, insurance industry, securities trading industry, brokering services, funds-management services, and financial counseling services. This building aims to be a hub of regional headquarters in the ASEAN. Secondly, The Super Tower will include a six-star hotel to accommodate the world’s top-class guests. Thirdly, it will present an attraction in the form of an observation tower that will bring visitors to the skyline so that they can enjoy the stunning panoramic view of Bangkok. The Super Tower will also be the first luxury lifestyles center that provides the most comprehensive service in Thailand.” Mr. Yotin continues.

The front area of The Super Tower will be developed as a convention and exhibition center with well over 6,000 square meters of utility space. This center will feature an open-air, green zone on its top, which is definitely perfect for outdoor and recreational activities. In addition, The Super Tower promises to provide adequate parking space and convenient access to shopping as the Shoppes Grand Rama 9 will be directly connected with The Super Tower.

The Super Tower Project is designed under the concept as an environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient facility. It has been developed in line with the requirements for the platinum certification of US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) which Very few high-rise buildings in Thailand have got the LEED certifications to date. In ensuring compliance with the LEED, G Land has paid significant attention to details in all stages from design, to construction, and to post-construction period for the development of The Super Tower. Now, it has been planned that insulated glass will cover the exterior of The Super Tower. Inside, highly-efficient air condition system will be in place inside using the variable air volume (VAV) to ensure a constant temperature. Energy-efficient materials will be used, and solar cells will be installed to generate some electricity for The Super Tower too. Moreover, bicycle parking space will be available and so will bathrooms to provide convenience to people who travel to their office by bicycles. Indeed, these elements respond so well to city people and truly support their choice of the comfortable, energy-saving transportation mode.

G Land has recruited SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP (SOM), one of the world’s top experts in tall buildings, as the consulting firm for its The Super Tower. Customers, therefore, can be rest assured of The Super Tower’s safety. This world-class skyscraper will have quake-proof design, efficient emergency response system and more. By the time The Super Tower construction is completed in 2019, much of SOM’s modern construction technologies will be transferred into Thailand allowing the country to possess the know-how that can also be shared with others in the future. In all, The Super Tower is going to be the ultimate acme of Thailand’s engineering and architecture industry as it will join the list of the world’s top 10 skyscrapers.

“I am confident that the Thai economy is roaring ahead. G Land launches the Super Tower project in response to the government policy to develop Thailand further and establish the country as the economic leader in the region. Boasting the huge potential to attract both domestic and foreign investors, The Super Power will be the pride of all Thais. This impressive skyscraper will become not just an economic hub of the ASEAN Community but also a definitely world-class attraction” Mr. Yotin concludes.

Tallest skyscraper in Asean planned for Bangkok

G Land's 615m, 125-storey 'Super Tower" set for completion in 2019

Published: 14 Oct 2014 at 17:07
Writer: Kanana Katharangsiporn

Real estate developer Grand Canal Land Tuesday unveiled plans for a 125-storey office and hotel tower that would make Bangkok home to the tallest skyscraper in Southeast Asia.

The 18-billion-baht 615-metre "Rama IX Super Tower" is set for completion by 2019 on 73 rai of land in the Grand Rama 9 mixed-use development site near the intersection of Ratchadapisek Road, the company, known as G Land, said at a press conference.

The 320,000-sq-metre "Super Tower" - the name is not final and a naming competition will be held later - is being designed by Architects 49 Ltd. The mixed-use project will offer 90,000 sq metres of office space and house a "six-star" hotel with 260 rooms. Other amenities include an observation tower for tourists and garden on the rooftop of a lower floor.

If completed, the tower would dwarf the tallest building currently in Thailand, the Baiyok II tower, which tops out at 328.4 metres on its 85th floors. The second-tallest structure, to be completed in 2016, is Mahanakhon condominium at 314 metres.

If built today, the tower would be the third-tallest in the world and the highest in the Asean region, planners said. Asean's current tallest building is the Petronas twin towers in Kuala Lumpur at 375 metres.

G Land chairman Yothin Boondicharern said the tower will anchor the Grand Rama 9 complex, which currently has offices, a shopping mall and residential area. It offers 1.2 million sq metres of land serving 300,000 people a day. The Super Tower's 90,000 sq metres of office space would be second only to the Empire Tower at 150,000 sq metres.

Planners said Tuesday the project will be accessed by a six-lane private road linking Rama IV and Rachadapisek and lie within 500 metres of an expressway exit and have a direct MRT connection.

They added that the building will be built to the platinum-level certification of the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED).

From this angle it looks a bit like 432 PA in a bathrobe. And with kitty ears.

Looks like that design was modified slightly, but hey, the tower looks really cool now, especially with that impressive height.

The design is done by Thai Architect Firm ARCHITECTS 49 LIMITED, however SOM is the facade consultant.

"G Land has recruited SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP (SOM), one of the world’s top experts in tall buildings, as the consulting firm for its The Super Tower.

The Super Tower is a pretty stupid name, but the design is just amazing. The new design is a lot better. It is modern, simple and just amazing. Hope this will go ahead, but having SOM working on it at least means the developers are pretty serious about it

The name "The Super Tower" is a placeholder name. They will later hold a contest for the name of the building.
