July 22, 2010

Nice to meet you, the new coming highest building in Thailand !!

Since Baiyok tower has been the tallest building since 1997, it will be replaced by Mahanakorn project soon.

how does it look like?

Who’s that powerful developer?

What’s its concept?

i gather all information for you here !!

MahaNakhon is a planned luxury mixed-use skyscraper to be constructed in the Sathon business area of Bangkok, Thailand. Designed by German architect Ole Scheeren, it will have the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain-walled square tower with a voxelated-surface spiral cut into the side of the building. Upon its estimated completion in 2014, it will become the tallest building in Bangkok at 313 metres (1,027 ft) and 77 floors.

Details on the MahaNakhon project were officially announced on 23 July 2009, with designs by German architect Ole Scheeren, partner of the design firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture. The building is being developed as a joint-venture between the Thai company Pace Development Co., Ltd. and Israel-based Industrial Buildings Corporation PLC. Construction is scheduled to begin in late 2009, and completion is estimated by the year 2012. The total project value is expected to reach eighteen billion baht.

Design and location

The tower’s design will assume the a shape of a square prism with the appearance of a rough spiral with cuboidal surfaces cut into the side of the building. The glass walls are divided horizontally and vertically, adding to the building’s “pixelated” appearance. Its proposed height, 313 metres (1,027 ft), with 77 floors, will make it the tallest building in Bangkok by structural height, surpassing Baiyoke Tower II‘s record of 304 metres (997 ft).

Among the planned features of the building are: 10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft) of luxury retail space (MahaNakhon Terraces); two hundred units of the Ritz-Carlton Residences, which, with prices starting at 250,000 baht per square meter, will be among the most expensive leases in Bangkok; the Bangkok Edition boutique hotel, with 150 rooms, to be operated by Marriott International with collaboration from Ian Schrager; as well as a roof-top bar and restaurant. The project also features a free-standing seven-storey building (“the Cube”) and an outdoor plaza (“MahaNakhon Square”), which will connect the tower to the Chong Nonsi stations of the BTS Skytrain and the planned Bangkok BRT on Narathiwat Ratchanakharin Road.

MahaNakhon is set on over 9 rai (3.6 acres) of Bangkok’s Central Business District directly fronting Chongnonsi BTS station between Silom and Sathorn Roads. Strategically located halfway between Chao Phraya River and Lumpini Park, which allows easy access to anywhere in the city. The location is surrounded by several luxury hotels and residences, Grade-A offices, world-class shopping centers, and international standard hospitals.
