I'm generally quite impressed with the design of this building, the overall archiecture. There are now many Aussie architects working in Thailand.

Here's another project from the early 90s by another Aussie firm, Nation Fender (now Nation Fender Katsalidis.. designer of the Eureka tower). This was for a plot of land north of Bangkok. It would have been a mixed use office/residential/hotel tower taller than O1. Pity this project never got off the ground.

Construction is due to start the first week in January and the official launch is 14 or 20th February by famous star. Current price is 130,000 baht per square meter but will definately go up by launch date. I was lucky and bought at 100,000 baht a square meter.

It seem like you are an agent trying to sell room here! not only this thread but you went several forums and posted the prices per unit not even look that the thread already exist.

Thailand’s tallest building to redefine Pattaya skyline



Construction on what will be the tallest building in Thailand is set to begin. The high-end Ocean 1 Tower, planned for the Jomtien waterfront, near Pattaya, will also be one of the tallest residential buildings in the world.

The 91 floor residential building overlooking Jomtien Beach will top out at 327 meters. Currently the Baiyoke Tower 11, at 304 meters and 84 floors, is Thailand’s tallest building.

Ocean 1 Tower is being developed by Eastern Seaboard property firm Siam Best Enterprises Co., Ltd. The building will feature 611 condominiums, ranging from studios through to three bedroom apartments, with one penthouse and two duplex penthouses. The complex will also include a shopping centre with a supermarket and specialty shops, as well as a variety of restaurants and cafes.

Bruno Pingel, CEO and managing director of Siam Best Enterprises, said Ocean 1 Tower would be a signature property that would not only redefine the Pattaya skyline, but would also set new standards in Thailand’s luxury condominium market.

“Ocean 1 Tower will be a landmark building in many ways,” he said. “It will introduce totally new concepts and technologies in the building of high rise luxury condominiums.”

Mr Pingel.said the Ocean 1 Tower development would have a significant impact on the Eastern Seaboard economy.
“This is a multi-million dollar project and as well as creating significant employment and revenues in the construction phase, will bring ongoing economic and employment benefits to the local community,” he said.

Sales to foreigners of Ocean 1 Tower units were expected to bring in US$ 200,000,000 in foreign currency revenues. “Apart from the direct revenue benefits, Ocean 1 Tower will be a world class accommodation and shopping complex,” he said. “It will be a major tourist attraction in its own right.”

Mr Pingel said a soft launch of the project among current clients and in selected international markets had already resulted in 15 per cent of units being sold.

Facilities include three swimming pools overlooking the ocean, a health spa, gym, jogging track and tropical gardens and salas.

A high speed tourist elevator will take visitors to the 91st floor which will have an observation gallery and restaurant. The apartment tower will have 14 high speed elevators servicing three residential zones.
Architects for the project are Woods Bagot, an international firm with extensive experience in skyscraper design. Other projects by developer Siam Best Enterprises Co include View Talay Villas, View Talay Residence Condominiums and Majestic Residence.
