Following Thonglor’s luxury condo development spree, unsurprisingly developers now have their eyes set on neighboring Ekamai.
As recently highlighted in “Overlooked Ekkamai: Story of an Underrated Condo Hotspot”, this sudden boom is predictable. Ekamai is viewed as a premium location and it offers a trendy, peaceful and laidback residential community environment. Often viewed as Thonglor’s sister neighborhood, it is centrally located, serviced by BTS Ekamai and offers easy access to Phetchaburi, Rama IV and Sukhumvit Road.
The area is popular amongst both Thais and Expats (Especially the Japanese expat community). The desirable and appealing nature of Ekamai has made it a condo development hotspot and the neighborhood is suddenly experiencing an unprecedented level of launches.
The Lofts Ekamai a 28-Floor (263 Unit) Condo by Raimon Land and Rhythm Sukhumvit 42 by AP (Thai) consisting of 36-Storeys (407 Units) were recently completed in 2016. AP (Thai) also launched another Rhythm branded project, Rhythm Ekkamai late-2016 consisting of 326 Units it is reportedly already sold out. Early-2017 Siamese Asset launched their flagship Siamese Exclusive Sukhumvit 42 located only 500m from BTS Ekamai, it will consist of 32-Storeys and 450 Units.
However Q3 of 2017 is producing a new wave of exclusive residential launches, from some of the capital’s top developers.
