Scene of some of the fiercest fighting in May’s bloody crackdown and home to some of Bangkok’s finest establishments, including hotels the Hyatt Erawan and Four Seasons and the soon to be completed St Regis Residences, Ratchadamri Road in the centre of Bangkok, is set for a new six-star entrant.

Vacant for the past 15 years, current lease-rights holder Maneeya Group have teamed up with a new investor, Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC), owned by the Cheavaranont family, majority share-holders of CP Group, the country’s biggest agribusiness conglomerate, to develop a mixed-use project.

Comprising of 1,000 square metres of retail space, 6,000 sq m of office space, a 250-room six-star hotel and 400 to 500 units of high-priced condominiums with total usable area of up to 62,400 sq m.


The Bangkok Post has reported that units will be sold at between 130,000 to 140,000 baht a sq m., sixty to seventy thousand less than other neighbouring developments as the plot sits on Crown Property Bureau (CPB) land.

The new developers are confident that with only 15 years remaining on the current lease the CPB will agree to an extension.

Under a pre-existing contractual obligation, all the office space will be used by the Debsirin Alumni Association, formerly an owner of the plot before Maneeya Group took it over.

Ground breaking on the original plot took place in 1994 before construction was stopped due to financial difficulties prior to the 1997 Asian economic crisis and despite the interest of another investor several years ago has remained vacant.

Overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club with unrestricted vistas east over the city, Ratchadamri Road remains one of the most coveted locations in Bangkok, bordering Bangkok’s central commercial shopping district.

The announcement of this development also comes at a time when another vacant building, abandoned since 1997, adjacent to Bangkok’s elevated Skytrain station Nana and situated on prime Sukhumvit real estate, has been demolished ahead of a new development.

The renders are still not the finnal design, so the design can still change!

In the Thai forum they where talking about they saw some people on the site.

Here a quote from Kaneshikero:

Yesterday I saw that there's people going into the site. I couldn't determine
whether it's the manager or the engineer because I'm on the skytrain and
it pass very quickly but I know that there's some activity.
Well that is good news right? That they're still interested in the site and will
continue on the project.
Hopefully they won't change the render and I hope for a nice hotel brand
like The Ritz Carlton for instance.

Quoting Speed:

yes, yesterday from passing skytrain, I saw people on-site doing surveys

first time in looooong time.....hopefully something cooking?!

Chad:

They are also doing the soil-testing.

Magnolia eyes luxury condo

Published: 2/03/2012 at 08:05 AM
Newspaper section: Business

Magnolia Finest Corporation, the property arm of the Chearavanont family, will kick off an initial 5-billion-baht sales drive in May for a new luxury condominium project specially designed to keep out protesters.

Without going into specifics, managing director Thanawan Chaiwatana said special security features incorporated into the building's architectural design will prevent easy entry by demonstrators.

The anti-protester design stems from the 6.5-rai project being located near the Ratchaprasong intersection, the site of major political demonstrations in recent years, he said.

"This bumps up the costs, but we have to ensure the safety of both condominium buyers and hotel guests," he said.

Mr Thanawan said the security features will be in harmony with the overall building design and not be obtrusive.

Costing 6 billion baht, Magnolia's Ratchadamri Boulevard will have a construction area of 100,000 square metres, 60% of which will be usable space.

Its 60 storeys will comprise 170 hotel rooms on the first to 16th floors, to be managed by Waldorf Astoria, a Hilton luxury label.

It will be the first Waldorf Astoria in Southeast Asia and the third in Asia after Shanghai and Beijing.

From the 17th floor upward will be 325 condominiums sized at50-60 sq m each for a one-bedroom unit to 300 sq m for a penthouse.

Selling prices for 30-year leaseholds have not finalised but a property consultant source estimates 140,000 baht per sq m.

The plot is owned by the Crown Property Bureau, and the Debsirin Alumni Association has the right to lease it.

The association will sublease it to the Maneeya Group, which owns 25% of Magnolia.

The lease was extended for another 30 years in 2010 plus three years for construction.

Last Bangkok CBD Plot Set For Start
Published on 14-03-2012 by Skyscrapernews.com

Contracts have been signed and work is due to start on a new luxury development on one of Bangkok's most prestigious streets, Ratchadamri Road which in recent times has not only become known as a prestigious business location, but has also been the backdrop for some of the countries bloodiest political rioting.

With this in mind developers of the project, Magnolia Group have promised not only a stunning building worthy of claiming the last unoccupied development plot on the road, but also one with state of the art security to keep all the activists away from.

The concept of the buildings design sees three essential parts which all come from the collective minds of Gensler.

Firstly there is a tall box-like tower section that on its own would be nice if slightly bland. Thankfully, this is joined by the curvier more fluid tower that links to the first via a large atrium, both of which then join at the podium below.

The inspiration for the design comes from the dancing forms of a well heeled gentlemen and a stunning beauty dancing together, this is possibly a tip of the top hat to those that will be able to afford to stop at the luxury towers which will contain the first Waldorf Astoria Hotel in South-East Asia.

The facades off the towers and podium will be fully glazed which when lit up at night will give the ‘dancers’ a look of animation and generally look nice through the day time too.

The tower will be mixed-use with the all important retail section of the project located in the podium section Due to a previous contractual obligation the Debsirin Alumni Association, former owners of the site, will be the soul occupants of the office space within the tower whilst the rest of the space will be taken up by the luxury 170 room hotel.

This will offer the usual spa and gym facilities along with state of the art conference space, two ballrooms, one all day restaurant along with two speciality restaurants and two bars, truly providing a space to work rest and play in. there will also be condominiums for the mega rich who will be able to look down on the district below with unobscured views.

6.5-rai project

land owner = Crown Property Bureau

Land lessee = Debsiri Alumni Association

Land sub-lessee = Maneeya Group (which owns 25% of Magnolia)

Since project has been sleeping dormant for many years (& old lease is stale)..for new Magnolia project, the lease was extended for another 30 years in 2010 + 3 years for construction period

So if Magnolia Rajadamri/Waldorf Astoria Hotel construction is totally done in 2013, you can buy a full 30 year sub-sub apt unit leasehold...

That is a bit tight for construction schedule, so people might only be able to actually buy 29 leasehold (if they can take unit possession in 2014)

New luxury icon for Bangkok
PROPERTY REPORT | Jun 27, 2012


Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard officially launched this week, a luxury mixed use development right in the heart of what is widely considered the city’s most sought-after address.

Developed by Magnolia Finest Corporation Ltd under the strapline ‘fulfilling the legacy of Ratchadamri’, the residences have been carefully crafted to offer luxury global investors top-end amenities in Bangkok’s most exclusive neighbourhood.

With a project value of around THB6 billion (US$188 million) for the residences, construction is expected to finish by mid 2015 and the lower floors of the development are set to house one of the world’s most prestigious 5-Star hospitality brands, The Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The unique architecture and interiors for Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard will introduce something unique to what is already a favoured location for stand out buildings in Bangkok. Two layers of a three-dimensional architectural ‘petal’ will spiral along the tower’s full height, as if springing from the ground like a Magnolia flower to reveal the inner life of the building.

The ‘petal’ will give the building a dramatic profile in the Bangkok skyline, whilst also providing special features to house the diverse functions in the building complex and create a comfortable living environment for residents.

“Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard is to be developed to global standards of next-generation living, both in terms of technology and design,” said Thanawan Chaiwatana, managing director, Magnolia Finest Corporation. “Beyond the magnificence of the property itself, there is an active intelligence at work behind the scenes, creating simple concessions to enjoyable life within the residences, whilst also saving on energy, water and reducing environmental impact.”

Built on more than 6 rai (9,600sqm) of land, Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard residences comprise 316 units, which range in size from 48 sqm (1-bedroom), average 80 sqm (2-bedroom) to the larger penthouses and duplex penthouses of between 250 to 360 sqm. Prices start from THB8 million (US$251,000), rising to THB80 million (US$2.5 million) for a 30-year leasehold.

Luxury features of the residences include The Magnolia Ratchadamri Boulevard Residences Lounge, an exclusive and private club, plus a residential lobby, drop-off area and concierge. Additionally, a curved garden-view library, jogging track with slope garden and 70 metre pool with Jacuzzi and kid’s pool will serve those looking to maximise use of the building’s many outdoor spaces.

Magnolias is one of the first buildings in Bangkok to be designed from the outset to meet the latest in green considerations and fully comply with both the Thai 2009 Green Building Code and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification of the US Green Building Council.
