The Southern section of purple line with a distance of 23.6 km consisted of 12.6 km subway and 11 km elevated tracks with 17 stations including 10 subway stations + 7 skytrain stations

Underground section:
1. National Assembly at Kiakkai
2. Si Yan near Irrigation Dept
3. Samsen near Sanghee intersection
4. National library in front of national library
5. Bang Khun Phrom - near Bang Khun Phrom palace (Bank of Thailand) - as the gateway to Bang Lamphu and Khaosan road as the curve section of subway did not allow MRTA to set up the station on the curve
6. Phan Fah - connect with Orange line here
7. Wang Boorapha - connect with Blue ring here
8. Memorial Bridge - on Thonburi side to allow the connection to Santa Cruz community as well as other old communities
9. Wongwian Yai - connect with Mahachai commuter line and Skytrain here
10. Sam Reh - in front of Naval hospital

Elevated track
11. Chomthong
12. Dao Khanong
13. Bang Pakok => Park and ride here near Rama 2 highway
14. Pracha Uthit - gateway to KMUTT
15. Rat Boorana => Park and ride here near BKK border to Phra Padaeng
16. Phra Padaeng
17. Kru Nai - the depot

Budget for this project is 100,000 Million Baht - 4200 million Baht for land exappropriation

The results after public hearing will be submitted to MRTA Board in early 2015 and ask the cabinet for approval so they can issue the decree for land exappropriation so the actual construction can be started in 2016 and opened in 2020.


http://www.dailynews.co.th/Content/b...B9%89%E0%B8%B2

Cabinet approving the land exappropriation act for the construction of Bearing to Pak Nam line - after MRTA has negotiated with owners of 76 land plots out of 83 land plots for compensation payments successfully - ONLY 7 land plots are still under negotiation - this act will allow MRTA to pay the real compensation to the land owners to allow the construction of Bearing to Pak Nam go on without problems

Next on the line is the decree for land exappropriation for Yellow monorail from Lad Phrao to Samrong, Orange line subway from Minburi to Thailand cultural center and Pink Monorail from Kae Rai to Minburi and Green line Skytrain extension from Mochit to Khoo Khot via Saphan Mai -

Bangkok, Ryanair and China are leaders in winter 2014; global seat capacity up 4.7% this November






Bangkok’s “old” Don Mueang Airport is the fastest-growing in the world this winter as measured by additional weekly seats compared with last winter. Helping the airport achieve this, have been route launches during the last 12 months from Thai AirAsia X, Nok Air and Thai AirAsia.

With the Northern Winter season (W14) having commenced on Sunday 26 October, anna.aero this week takes a detailed look at which airports, airlines and countries have seen the biggest year-on-year change in available seat capacity (in absolute terms not percentage terms) at the start of the winter season, compared with the same period a year ago. Airlines are constantly adjusting their planned capacity so this analysis is really only a snapshot, and a similar analysis done for the first week of December or January would produce different figures, though the rankings are likely to be broadly similar.

Bangkok wins … and loses

The decision of the Thai authorities to allow the controlled redevelopment of Bangkok’s old Don Mueang airport has resulted in that airport seeing the biggest volume increase in seat capacity this winter. Over 90,000 more weekly seats will be departing the downtown airport this November than a year ago, representing a 44% increase in weekly capacity. Eight of the top 10 fastest-growing airports by this measure are in Asia, with the notable exceptions being Dubai and Istanbul Atatürk, home to two of the world’s biggest global carriers Emirates and Turkish Airlines respectively. With the exception of Bangkok Don Mueang, none of the other airports are growing by more than 20% in percentage terms.

Bogota, ranked 11th, is the fastest-growing airport in the Americas, while Rome Fiumicino in 12th place is the fastest-growing European airport thanks to the rapid expansion of both Ryanair and Vueling at the airport during the course of the year. Doha, in 13th place, is growing faster than Dubai in percentage terms, but is still not growing its seat capacity in volume terms as rapidly as its Middle East rival.



At the other end of this ranking are the airports with the biggest decrease in weekly seat capacity. Bangkok Suvarnabhumi has seen a reduction of almost 60,000 weekly seats, almost twice as many as its nearest rival, Tripoli. However, Suvarnabhumi’s capacity reduction is only 8.5%, whereas in Tripoli the changes represent a 78% reduction in seats. Also among the airports with a weekly reduction of between 10,000 and 25,000 departing seats, are some major Asian-Australian airports; Brisbane, Seoul Gimpo, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo Narita.

Considered to be one of the world’s oldest international airports, Bangkok Don Mueang was officially OPENED as a Royal Thai Air Force facility in March 1914; the first commercial service was inaugurated here by KLM as early as 1924. Following the OPENING of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang closed down for BUSINESS and was only reopened in 2012 after years of renovation. Together with the upgrade of facilities came another change – in just over a year, the airport has become Bangkok’s new low-cost hub with Nok Air and The AirAsia Group taking up most of its capacity.

Langsuan Village

Crown Property Bureau, a quasi-government agency operating under the supervision of a board led by the Finance Minister of Thailand, announced that it would be allotting THB26 billion (USD801 million) to build and develop a mixed-use township called Langsuan Village, located on a 56-rai plot along Lang Suan Road. According to the Bangkok Post, the entire development would comprise 14 low-rise and high-rise buildings, including three condominiums.

Chalaluck Bunnag, chief executive of Crown’s Siam Sindhorn Co subsidiary, said the multibillion budget excludes land and MANAGEMENT costs. The group’s first project in the village, Sindhorn Residence, will be completed in Q4 2016, whilst the second, Sindhorn Midtown, will be launched at the close of 2015. A 200-room luxury HOTEL is also under development, as well as a museum.

'Integrated Park and Streetscape' will instead play an active role of providing spaces that could be use for wider ranges of urban activities and at the same time mitigating harsh urban environment. Smart Park should respond not only society aspiration but also natural phenomena.

Project Description

Chulalongkorn University Centennial Park and Streetscape is a part of a mixed-use redevelopment masterplan which spans over 346,000 sqm in central Bangkok. Given the sizable area of 32,500 sqm, the park is large enough to serve also the existing surrounding neighborhood within 4 km radius. The streetscape with the area of 39,000 sqm is designed as an extension of the park to link all the plots (in the master plan) back to the park in the middle.

The existing site is full of deteriorating 4 storey shophouses in arectangular grid segmented with bare road surface with hardly a tree. It was a kind of development that responded well to social needs at the dawn of Thai’s modern era when nature was still in abundance. However, with the population that has grown threefold in less than thirty years, this urban renewal master plan is set to cope with new social and environmental shifts.

‘Integrated Park and Streetscape’ is at the core of the whole master plan. It is set out to be more than just greenery. The park will generate new urban interaction and create a new urban ecosystem that is resilient to increasing environmental challenges.

The steel structure are pierces by two bright orange cylinder form, inside them, there are toilets and necessity mechanical function to the rooftop where they turned to be seating area.

The 7 storey reinforced concrete at the rear, the elevator foyer at each floor were aligned to the retail’s open space to accentuate people’s movement. As same articulation as retails, the bright orange shear wall structure also pierce through floors to the rooftop where it hides the water tank. The façade embraces the sense of clarity, OPENNESS with the wall to ceiling glass yet protected by the proper depth of running terraces. The accent line of floor structure continue to run to the side wall creating the zigzag line, to eliminate the repetition and massiveness of the huge structure.

Launches worth more than Bt200 billionn planned for 2015, with much of the development set for the provinces

Leading property developers, confident that the residential market will continue to recover next year, plan to launch projects worth more than Bt200 billion during the course of 2015.

A survey by The Nation early this week found that both listed and non-listed property companies plan to launch more residential projects by focusing on Bangkok and the provinces. (See graphic.)

Pruksa Real Estate president and CEO Thongma Vijitpongpun said the property market had begun to show signs of recovering from July to September, and he expected to see stable growth during next year.

As a result, the company plans to launch between 60 and 70 projects worth Bt50 billion-Bt60 billion during the course of 2015, close to this year's level.

Supalai deputy managing director Tritecha Tangmatitham said the company had earmarked an investment budget of just under Bt5 billion to buy land next year, which is on a par with this year.

This forms part of the developer's plan to launch at least 27 projects worth up to Bt30 billion next year.

"We saw residential demand start to recover in June when the country's political stability returned, while we also have confidence that next year's property market should show strong growth under the government s policy to expand investment in infrastructure, which will boost demand for homes located close to mass-transit systems," he said.

Property Perfect CEO Chainid Adhyanasakul said the company would expand its investment east of Bangkok, especially in the Eastern Seaboard provinces of Chon Buri and Rayong, as well as in Phetchaburi and the Hua Hin district of Prachuap Khiri Khan, in 2015, as there is strong residential demand in these locations.

"We see strong demand to buy from both locals and foreigners moving to work in these locations," he said.

Meanwhile, eastern locations also have more facilities to support new residential projects, such as motorways, expressway and the rail system, said the CEO.

"In 2015, we will launch nearly as many new projects in the provinces as in Bangkok," Chainid said.

"Although the new investment in infrastructure will take time [to kick in], the government policy to develop 10 new mass-transit routes and a nationwide double-track rail system - and invest in integrating the country's logistics system - is together worth Bt3 trillion from 2015 through 2022. That will drive the property market's expansion from Bangkok into the provinces, as a result of which we are expanding our provincial investment," he added.

AP (Thailand) chief marketing officer Vitakarn Jantavimol said his company would launch roughly the same number of residential projects in 2015 as this year - 17 projects worth about Bt22 billion - thanks to residential demand having begun to recover in the second half.

Four or five new projects planned for launch next year will be jointly developed with AP's Japanese partner, Mitsubishi Estate Group, he said.

Chutima Tangmatitham, assistant managing director of MK Real Estate, said the company planned to launch six residential projects during the course of next year, four of them detached-housing and townhouse projects, and the other two condominium developments.

Three of the six will be projects delayed from this year.

"We delayed launching three projects this year when the country's political problems in the first half caused us to revise our 2014 new project launches. However, we have confidence that the market recovery in the current half will continue into next year, during which we now plan to launch more new projects," she said.

All of the above companies are listed on the stock exchange.

Meanwhile, CP Land has set aside an investment budget of Bt30 billion to develop residential projects, office buildings, distribution centres and small power plants from 2015 to 2017.

For residential projects, the company plans to launch at least 3,000 condominium units worth nearly Bt10 billion in the provinces next year.

Sunthorn Arunanondchai, president and CEO of the unlisted developer, said the company was planning such a level of residential development next year due to strong provincial demand.

The Nation November 7, 2014 1:00 am


Foreign property companies from China, Hong Kong, Israel, Singapore and Japan are expanding their investment in Thailand's property market via joint ventures with local players for the development of both residential and commercial buildings.

Charn Issara Development has formed a joint venture with investors from China and Hong Kong to develop a Bt3-billion mixed-used project, the Baba Beach Club, in Phang-Nga province.

The project, which comprises detached houses, condominiums and a HOTEL, will commence construction next year.

Major Development has established a joint venture, TMDC Construction, with Bt100 million of registered capital with an Israeli construction firm, Danya Cebus, and Hong Kong's CRG Global Investment.

The Thai company holds 51 per cent of TMDC Construction, while Danya Cebus holds 45 per cent and CRG Global Investment accounts for the remaining 4 per cent.

Nirvana Development, meanwhile, is negotiating with two property funds from Japan and Singapore that are interested in investing in a Thai developer.

The company expects the deal to be finalised in March, before it applies to be listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand.

Earlier, Japanese property firms also expanded their investment in Thailand's real-estate market by forming joint ventures.

Mitsui Fudosan Group did so with Ananda Development, while Mitsubishi Estate Group followed the same path with AP (Thailand).

Israel-based IBC also established a joint venture with Pace Development in 2009, for the development of luxury residential buildings.

Major Development MANAGING director Suriya Poolvoralaks reported recently to the SET that the company's venture with Israeli and Hong Kong firms was part of an effort to increase its business advantage during a period of intense competition.

It is also aimed at expanding into property-development-related business in the future.

Nirvana Development CEO Sornsak Somwattana said the company needed more capital to expand its business during a highly competitive period, and negotiating with foreign property funds formed part of its effort to boost funding to compete with other property players.

Meanwhile, the company also plans to launch six residential projects worth Bt9 billion combined next year, and investment from abroad would support this plan, he said.

An injection of capital would also support its finances before applying for a bourse listing, he added.

Nirvana Development plans to increase its registered capital from Bt715 million currently to Bt1 billion next year by raising funds from the SET.

Charn Issara Development CEO Songkran Issara said the company's joint venture with investors from China and Hong Kong for its Bt3-billion mixed-used project in Phang-Nga was part of its strategy of MANAGING its portfolio to support its investment plan.

Moreover, foreign investors are interested in expanding their investment in Thailand's property market, where they see business opportunity and strong demand, he said.

Condo, retail business to the fore

Surachet Kongcheep, senior MANAGER of Colliers International Thailand's research department, said investors from Japan, China and Hong Kong were currently interested in expanding their investment in Thailand's property market, especially in condominiums and retail business.

This is largely because the Kingdom's location as a gateway to Asean will increase in significance when the Asean Economic Community comes into being next year.

Meanwhile, Bangkok is urbanising in its suburbs, thanks to the government continuing to expand public investment in the mass-transit system.

This opens up opportunities to develop residential projects in locations around Bangkok for local players, and for foreign investors keen to expand their investment in Thailand, he said.

"When land prices and construction costs in Thailand's property market are compared with those of other countries in the region, Thai prices are still lower, which challenges foreign investors to expand their investment in our property market," he added.

During the great plague of Bangkok, the temple was used for cremation ceremonies, which were not permitted inside the walled city, 30,000 bodies were brought here and some remain around the present hill.

The Golden Mount is an artificial hill constructed under King Rama III. When the king tried to build a sizable chedi here before the hill existed, it collapsed because of the soft soil beneath. He therefore made a strong pile of mud and bricks to support it.

Later, King Rama V added the golden chedi on top and concrete walls to prevent the hill from eroding and structure collapsing.

Augmented-reality technology for your smartphone makes a visit to one of Bangkok's oldest communities Tha Tian both fun and fascinating. The famed guardian statues of Wat Pho reveal their origins in 3D imagery.

Why is this oldest shard of Bangkok named "wiped-out pier"? And much more

YOU DON'T get anything like a complete picture of Tha Tian - one of Bangkok's oldest communities - in the exhibition about it at Museum Siam. Instead, the sparse panel of display boards is your launching pad to the area along the riverside itself. This is your starting point for a visit to "Tha Tian: Where Bangkok City Was Born", ideally via bicycle and a mobile app.

In a unique approach to explaining just how important Tha Tian was as a trade centre as far back as the 17th century, the museum has prepared the "Tha Tian" application for smartphones with either Android or iOS, in Thai and English.

It has a map on which you can "favourite" the locations you like best while you're exploring, and a hard-copy illustrated map is also available at the museum. They show the community stretched out along Maharaj Road from Museum Siam itself to the Grand Palace. At five points you can learn from your phone app about the history, with 3D visualisation made with AR (augmented reality) technology. Another 10 spots have a QR code to swipe with your phone for more information.

And your tour can be done on foot or on a bicycle available for free at the museum.
