Chinatown-Yaowarat - Redevelopment

Eight months after voicing their concerns about the state of their community and how they want it to be developed, the residents of Talat Noi — an old district near Bangkok’s famous Chinatown — can now look forward to progress on a scale that will rejuvenate it on a grand scale.

The clean-up process will clear encroached areas and open up more public space for the community residents to carry out their activities. photos by Patipat Janthong

“The neighbourhood has been difficult to access for everyone, including tourists,” said Vichai Ariyarattopas, 53, who grew up in the community and runs a boutique hotel.

Mr Vichai fully supports City Hall’s plans to improve road infrastructure and set up an integrated transit system that combines land, waterways and rail.

That, he says will draw more visitors to the community.

Like many other locals, Mr Vichai wants the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to preserve the Talat Noi community. The preservation project will parallel the Bangkok Chinatown Riverfront project, under a policy to make the capital a more liveable city.

The Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts was hired in March to study the needs of the local residents and ways to improve the community. The findings will be submitted to City Hall by the end of November.

If the BMA’s executive board approves the institute’s findings, Vanchai Thanomsak, director-general of the City Planning Department, said a budget will be proposed.

The restoration of Talat Noi and its environs will increase its importance as a city business centre, Mr Vanchai said.

The aim of the plan is not to improve the neighbourhood for the benefit of outside motorists. Rather, it is to improve the lives of residents and pedestrians, said Assoc Prof Chuvit Sucha-xaya, a lecturer at Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts.

He presented the institute’s findings — drawn from interviews with Talat Noi residents — at a meeting on Oct 29 to more than 200 residents, officials from relevant agencies and members of the private sector.

“We asked them to visualise the future of the community and how they want the community to be shaped,” said Prof Chuvit, who lead the study.

The residents want piers to be improved and some canals to be restored. An improved network of walkways and bike routes topped the list, as well as upgraded pedestrian facilities and road infrastructure.

They want car parking spaces and bike racks to be provided, he said. A tourist information centre was also included on the list.

But as Assoc Prof Chuvit pointed out, the residents’ needs are endless. Therefore, the institute team chose four out of 20 projects to launch the restoration plans. These four pilot projects will require a budget of 59.2 million baht.

Two of the projects involve infrastructure improvements to the Phanurangsee and Sawasdee piers. The other two are aimed at improving walkways that link the community and the riverfront, and the provision of the direction signs within the community.

Phanurangsee Pier was chosen as a pilot project even though it is not in use, he said. The pier and its surroundings are always crowded with people who use the spot as a meeting community meeting place. Near the pier is a museum paying tribute to Dr Puey Ungpakorn is being built.

“The area needs improvements in several aspects so it can better serve the increasing number of people expected to flock to the neighborhood,” Assoc Prof Chuvit said.

Initially, public spaces for recreational activities will be created, including an outdoor sports area and space for relaxed reading. A tourist centre is proposed and a pier for tourist boats will be constructed, while bike racks will be provided. The Puey Ungpakorn museum will be surrounded by trees and plants to create a relaxing environment.

For the Sawasdee pier, Assoc Prof Chuvit said the plan was to upgrade it and make it a gateway to the Chao Phraya River. Once a bustling dock that handled cargo, the pier is now a small structure that services just one ferry operated by a private company, he said.

The pier can be expanded to increase its capacity to handle more tourist boats, he added.

Added to that will be a network of alleys and lanes to make it more convenient for pedestrians and cyclists to access the community’s services. Green spaces will be added and big trees will be planted to give shade.

Setting up a tourist information centre and community centre are also part of the second plan.

The next part of the project involves improved pedestrian facilities in areas that connect Talat Noi to the Chao Phraya River’s bank.

Assoc Prof Chuvit said a path that currently links the river and the community is too narrow for people and bikes to get through.

Additional walkways and roads need to be created to provide more channels to access to the community, he said, adding Talat Noi is accessible via Yaowarat Road and Charoen Krung Road, but they are very busy thoroughfares.

The subway’s Purple and Red lines that will link the community to the city centre are under construction and set to be launched soon.

To promote cultural tourism in Talat Noi, a special and carefully designed path will be built to connect various areas, providing convenience and comfort for cyclists and pedestrians.

Parking areas will be provided for bike riders as well as rest stops that meet community needs. Alleyways in the community will be decorated with ballast dolls (tukkata up chaow), the Talat Noi community symbol.

The final pilot plan is to provide signs along walkways to direct tourists to attractions and landmarks in the community, Assoc Prof Chuvit said.

Resident Nonlanee Ungwiwatkul, 36, said she hopes the project will provide the community with a much-needed face-lift, adding areas that had been encroached upon by some residents should be reclaimed under City Hall’s restoration scheme. She accused district officers of neglecting their duty for years.

She said residents lacked the public spaces to perform activities including exercise.

Born and raised in the community, Ms Nonlanee said she hopes the restoration as part of the city’s preservation plan will open up more public space for residents.

Vorrapong Sukteera-anatachai from Chaophaya Development Corp Ltd also supported the preservation plan, and urged the BMA to improve all piers along the Chao Phraya River and especially the walkways linking the piers to the nearby communities.

Preeda Parathachariya, a resident living in Yaowarat community, said the restoration programme values the people’s way of life.

He urged authorities to boost the charm of this little gem in the city and to strictly enforce traffic regulations to improve road safety in the community.

And its central location is a big draw, too



Bangkok-based developer Raimon Land’s Loft brand recently announced its latest project that targets urbanites who frequent the prime Asoke area off the popular upper Sukhumvit Road, which is lined up with offices, shopping centres and restaurants.

“The number of luxury developments in Asoke currently on sale is actually quite limited due to a lack of land, particularly on the favoured West side (left hand side) of Asoke looking towards Nana – the area to the west is all low-rise housing and low-rise buildings,” he noted.

“Raimon Land feels that our design, facilities and quality standards are the key differentiators to match the amazing Asoke location. We recognise that buyers are looking for a sense of space; hence, we have no studios and instead included soaring ceilings reaching up to 3.2m in the loft zone and almost 6m in the high zone.”

While Thai buyers will be the primary target buyers of The Lofts Asoke, Raimon Land intends to market up to 40 percent of the project to expats in Bangkok and offshore buyers based in Hong Kong and Singapore by the second quarter of 2016.

Two properties will add to the Thai capital’s growing hospitality offerings



As Bangkok’s tourist arrivals prove its resilience by posting a 25 percent increase in the first 10 months of 2015, according to the Bangkok Post, two hospitality management companies are making their first forays in the Thai capital despite a crowded hotel market.

The recently announced hotels will be located in the Asoke area, off Bangkok’s ever-popular Sukhumvit Road.

Well Hotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20 is the first hotel for Thailand-based hotel management company Well Hotels and Resorts and is due for soft opening on New Year’s Day, 1 January 2016, according to a company press release.

Nestled in the heart of Sukhumvit Road with BTS and MRT connections, and in close proximity to shopping havens Terminal 21 and The Em District, the property has been designed to promote the concept of wellness and a healthy lifestyle, according to its developer.

Amenities at Well Hotel Bangkok include a spa, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and Eat Well Cafe. The hotel’s management team expects to draw a young crowd of health-oriented tourists. In addition, the executive rooms and suites of the 235-key property will reportedly be equipped with private exercise bikes.

“Well Hotel Bangkok is bringing a new concept to the hospitality scene combining urban lifestyle and wellness together,” said Danai Wansom, president and CEO of Well Hotels and Resorts. “Our target market is mainly the millennials and young families who appreciate modern lifestyle with being health conscious.”

The new hotel could well prove a magnet to the influx of Asian tourists expected into the city, predicts the Bangkok Post. There has been a huge increase in Asian arrivals over the past year, particularly from Mainland China, with Q1 2015 arrivals jumping 268 percent year-on-year from this group.

Some 30 million tourist arrivals are expected in the Thai capital this year with about two million arriving for medical and wellness purposes, per the Bangkok Post report. Many of those arriving for these services will choose to stay in the popular Sukhumvit Road area.

A new report from Knight Frank has designated Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur as having the potential to become global “super cities” in the medium term. Alongside Nairobi, Moscow and Dubai, they have been pinpointed as the most up-and-coming destinations for real estate investment with heaps of growth potential and exciting opportunities.

With urbanisation all over the world on a steady incline – the United Nations predicts the global population living in cities will hit 380 million by 2020 – cities such as these will be forced to rapidly expand and adapt to a brimming population with residential, commercial and leisure property needs.

The Origination of Nursing Home. On 20th August 1897 the British community convened a meeting at the British Legation when Mr. George Greville CMG, the then British Minister Resident and Consul General, took the Chair. The meeting concluded that a medical facility should be established in Bangkok and the Committee proposed the project to H.M. King Chulalongkorn who approved and assigned the Ministry of Education to oversee the establishment of a Nursing Home.

H.M. King Chulalongkorn kindly provided supporting funds of 960 baht per year to make the nursing home a non-profit organization where foreigners who came to Thailand could turn when they were ill. The first task for the Committee was to rent temporary premises in Phya Dejo's Road to provide a small non-profit making nursing home to see to the immediate medical needs of the resident foreign community. The first Matron, Miss Cawley, and the Nursing Sister, Miss Hitchens, arrived in Bangkok in the middle of 1898 and the Nursing Home was in operation by August 1898.

THE Property market will growth by 5-10 per cent nationwide next year, especially in Greater Bangkok, thanks to the government’s investment in infrastructure projects, said the president and chief executive officer of Pruksa Real Estate, Thongma Vijitpongpun.

"When the government starts to invest in infrastructure projects, that will open up new land for property firms to develop residential projects. This will challenge property firms to invest in the new locations following the new mass-transit route from Bangkok to the suburbs and [nearby provinces]," he said.

Meanwhile, investment in infrastructure such as railway double-tracking, motorways, and 10 new mass-transit routes will make Thailand a regional transport hub after the Asean Economic Community goes into effect at the end of this month. This will boost demand to buy homes in Thailand, both in Bangkok and in the provinces, as foreign companies invest in Thailand as a gateway to other Asean countries, he said.

"We believe that Thailand's property market will show average growth of 5-10 per cent a year from 2016-2020," he said.

Foreseeing strong long-term demand for homes, Thongma said Pruksa had a strategy to maintain average business growth of 15-20 per cent a year. This would bring its annual presale value to Bt100 billion in five years.
