There is only one high-rise building (Intercontinental hotel - 15 storey, built in the 90's) you can find back in 2005.

The construction boom only started in recent years and all the projects I list were approved either last year or this year

We do this to some extent in North America with our suburbs, but nothing even close to the kind of suburbs being built in Asia.
The projects I listed above are mostly located in the city center area or within the city, except Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone and Grand Phnom Penh International City (Not sure about the location of this project)

I have read that there are plans to build urban Chinatowns in Northern Laos, mainly to relocate thousands and thousands of Chinese families in China, but as far as skyscrapers or any mega projects are concerned, there are none, at least not yet. Most of the major projects in Laos are moderate Hotels and hydroelectric dams, which are mainly funded by the Chinese.

Rising skyline

BK Asia


In a design conception, the proposed Pharos Mekong Towers sit along the Tonle Sap, opposite downtown Phnom Penh. South Korea’s BK Global Co, Ltd, will invest $400 million to build five 25-storey residential towers on Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changva Peninsula, BK president and CEO Park Sung In told the Post on July 14.

“Many Korean investors see Cambodia as a place for potential investment,” said Park. “Cambodia is a land of opportunity.”
The so-called Pharos Mekong Towers, situated on a five-hectare site near the Four Faces Rivers project, would be slated for completion within 96 months, Park said, with the first phase of construction to begin in October and complete in about 32 months.

A model home would be opened in September, he said, with prices for condominiums set at $300-350,000. The target market would include foreign investors, overseas Cambodians and the growing domestic upper class.

“The unique location of Chroy Changva should attract many wealthy people to live there,” said Park.

“If you stay here, you can see the Royal Place, the Naga, getting fresh air and luxury accomodations along the Bassac River.” said BK Asia director Park Dong Chool.

“This will be a unique project for Cambodia,” added Park, with the development to include 1.5 hectares of open space, a healthcare centre, a spa, an international school, recreation areas, commercial and office space, restaurants and parking.

“We have designed it like Angkor Wat,” said Park.

Russei Keo district governor Khlaing Huot told the Post on July 15 that the company had already sought approvals for the construction from the district authority.

The development would not have a negative impact on current residents of Chroy Changva, Khlaing Huot said. “We have no plan to move anyone out,” he said.

South Korean embassy officials declined to comment on the project.

“Most Korean-invested real estate development projects succeed,” said Khlaing Huot.

A new branch for ANZ Royal, Monivong Boulevard, Phnom Penh.


A new branch for ANZ Royal, the building has 9 storeys including a basement. The main banking hall is at first floor, accessed by escalators and overlooking Monivong Boulevard. The offices have a separate entrance on the north side of the building; customer parking is at ground floor level below the offices, staff parking in the basement.


...........................................................
I also hear ANZ Royal Bank is also planning and has the green lights for two buildings: 2 x 25 floors near the Central Market in PP, construction to start at the end of this year.

Building on Vattanak Bank offices to start

Building on Vattanak Bank offices to start
Written by Sovan Nguon
Wednesday, 13 August 2008

VATTANAK Bank plans to launch construction of a US$100 million headquarters on Monivong Boulevard next week, said one of the bank's key investors on Tuesday.

Construction is scheduled to finish in 2011, said Chhun Leang, the mother of Sam Ang Vattanak, Vattanak's executive director who is out of the country.

The 33-storey, 8,000 square-metre-headquarters opposite the railway station will also contain space for rent as offices or retail, she said.

Pa Socheat Vong, deputy governor of Phnom Penh, told the Post on Tuesday that the new building is good for the city, but warned that it will bring more traffic jams if it does not comply with architectural plans.

The capital is experiencing an unprecedented building boom that includes another massive bank headquarters - the Canadia Bank skyscraper, also on Monivong Boulevard.

"It shows the progress in the banking sector," said Pa Socheat Vong.

New five-star hotel to rise on Phnom Penh riverfront

New five-star hotel to rise on Phnom Penh riverfront
Written by Sovan Nguon
Tuesday, 12 August 2008

Shovels turn on a $100 million hotel and 1,500-seat conference facility to be situated across the Tonle Sap river from the capital

A NEW US$100 million five-star hotel is in the works for Phnom Penh with construction set for completion in 2011.

The 799-room hotel, being built by the Sokimex conglomerate, will feature two conference rooms with seating capacity for 1,500 persons and parking spaces for 1,000 cars, said Sokimex president Sok Kong.

The hotel will be situated on the east side of the riverfront on Chhroy Changva peninsula in Phnom Penh's Russey Keo district.

"The 16-storey Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel will be built on six hectares of land which is under a 99-year land lease from city hall from 2007," Sok Kong told the Post after the ground breaking ceremony last week.

The company acquired the land for $42 a square metre.

"The hotel will create 1,200 jobs for Cambodians," he said, noting that the hotel would be eco-friendly and up to international standards, with a liquid waste and sewage treatment system.

Sok Kong said the hotel was favourably located with river views and a good atmosphere but admitted, "There is a problem with traffic because there is only one bridge for access".

He said that Phnom Penh has seen a hotel boom but that the city has no conference facilities.

"The hotel's conference centre will seat up to 1,500 people, and will be the [country's] biggest conference hall. It will raise Cambodia's reputation internationally," he said .

"The Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel will be the hotel with the largest conference hall in the city, and it will be suitable for international conferences," So Mara, undersecretary of state in the tourism ministry, told the Post on Sunday.

"Foreign tourism has grown 19 percent year-on-year, so the hotel will satisfy high-class guests," So Mara said.

Cambodia Hotel Association president Loo Meng welcomed the new hotel.

"It is a good sign for the tourism sector. It shows that the tourism industry is getting better and better," he said.

"The hotel will be good for high-class guests, and it will be as high quality as those in neighbouring countries."

So Mara also said that the hotel industry was booming in Phnom Penh as the influx of foreign tourists continues.

Sok Kong said that the Sokha Phnom Penh would be the third five-star hotel operated by Sokimex in Cambodia, joining existing Sokha hotels in Sihanoukville and Siem Reap. Two more were on the drawing boards, he added.

Sokimex is also building two golf courses in a protected area on Bokor Mountain, Sok Kong said, adding that the company was also planning a resort at the site of old Bokor casino.
