Waldorf Astoria + Magnolias Ratchaprasong, 60 Storey-242 M : Ratchaprasong

September 2003


Since the last issue, Cairncross Martin has secured further works with Bovis Lend Lease, both from the Sydney office and the Brisbane office. We have been engaged in a "supporting" role to their Project Managers, assisting them with some of the more peculiar nuances of FF&E management.

These projects include; the refurbishment of the Intercontinental Hotel, Sydney and The Sheraton Royal, Fiji.


Preliminary works have also been initiated for a new development of The Ritz Carlton, Bangkok. Following the recent completion of the Conrad Hotel, Bangkok, this project further consolidates Cairncross Martin's Bangkok office as the leading FF&E consultant in the region.

Cairncross Martin has also been "written up in the news!.... The Australian newspaper featured the firm in a major profile piece, 14th August 2003. The story, titled "The Inn Crowd Swing it from the Chandeliers" delved into how Andrew Cairncross and Michael Martin and the evolution of the FF&E industry as whole, including reference to both Australian and International projects completed by the firm. A copy of the article appears on our website.

previous news:

02 December 2003 - Maneeya Realty announced that the Royal Rajdamri, an unfinished condominium and office complex on Rajdamri Rd Bangkok, is to be revived during the course of 2004 at a cost of Bt4 billion. Maneeya Realty has joined forces with a new partner, US real-estate developer Gannon. The project is likely to include a luxury hotel, serviced apartment, office and shopping centre components.

Previously I was under a lot of impression that either the Wongkusolkit family or the Srivikorn family was behind this project, since these two families developed/own most of the buildings around Ratchaprasong intersection eg. Gran Hyatt Erawan, Gaysorn Plaza etc. The Royal Ratchadamri project was originally going to be developed jointly by the Srivikorn Group & Maneeya Group..

So it seems maneeya is now teaming up with Gannon.. and they'll then invite the Ritz Carlton Group to manage the 5 star hotel.

FYI The Srivikorn family is one of the biggest landlards in Bangkok in the olden days. They own/develop lots of shopping centres/ hotel in Central Bangkok, for example Gaysorn plaza, Intercontinental Hotel. Golden Land Plc was one of their subsidiary companies.
I speculate that the Srivikorn Group (Golden land), in their quest to restructure the company, had to let go a number of major unfinished projects, the like of Gold Pine Gardens which was sold to Siamphan Group and later renamed Urbana Langsuan.

no idea.. the original plan for RR was for a 50 storey tower and lower podium. I think Archstudent posted some pics of Ritz Carlton before.

yeah, i guess they had to sell many properties to cover their losses during financial crisis.

i am excited to see this project being resumed too.

Well... This project was before joined by Maneeya and Srivokorn....which means I think the Srivikorn sold their stakes to Gannon.....

The Royal Ratchadamri, 45+12 Storey : Ratchaprasong

Maneeya owner to spend billions on new projects

Ratchaprasong area to rival Paris, London


Sukanya Jitpleecheep


The owner of the Maneeya centre at Bangkok's Ratchaprasong intersection is pouring money back into his property investments, putting billions of baht into a new five-star hotel, serviced apartments and a commercial centre on remaining land in the area.

M.R.Tinasakti Saktidej Phanubandh, managing director of Maneeya Realty Co Ltd, said the company would develop a 45-storey, 380-room five-star hotel named the Royal Ratchadamri on Ratchadamri Road between the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel and Peninsula Plaza.

The 6.5-rai plot, leased from the Crown Property Bureau for 30 years, will also hold a 130-room serviced apartment complex and a 12-storey office building with total space of 10,000 square metres.

''The Royal Ratchadamri Hotel will be a new choice for customers in the area. It will offer a unique service and new atmosphere, when compared to the Grand Hyatt Erawan, Four Seasons and the InterContinental,'' said M.R. Tinasakti.


''The three existing hotels have different characters as US, Canadian and UK brands. With the addition of our new hotel, the area would be the first location in the world to have four international hotel chains.''

M.R. Tinasakti said the company was also planning to develop the 35-storey Royal Maneeya Tower on a 10-rai plot of land beside Maneeya Centre.

The tower will include 10,000 square metres of office space, 99 serviced apartments and 76 condominiums. At the same time, it will develop the Maneeya Shopping Centre on 5,000 square metres next to the Royal Maneeya Tower.

All of the projects would be completed by 2007, he said.


''It is the first time since the economic crisis in 1997 that we have undertaken an investment worth several billion baht,'' he said.

The projects would help fulfill his goal of transforming the Ratchaprasong district into a world-class shopping destination along the lines of the Champs d'Elyse{AAC}es in Paris, Oxford Street in London and Orchard Road in Singapore.

The Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA), the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and the Tourism Authority of Thailand will invest 100 million baht to improve infrastructure including expanding sidewalks, installing destination signs and building more bridges linking buildings in the area over the next year or two, said RSTA president Chai Srivikorn, whose family owns the upmarket Gaysorn centre and the InterContinental Hotel.
