Bangkok–20 Oct–Grand Canal Land
Grand Canal Land Public Company Limited or “G Land”, one of Thailand’s leading property developers, is making a new history through the launch of “The Super Tower” project. Developed as ASEAN’s tallest building and one of the world’s top 10 skyscrapers, The Super Tower will stand 615 meters tall with 125 floors. The Super Tower is positioned as ASEAN’s new economic hub.
Mr. Yotin Boondicharern, chairman of G Land, discloses that, “Spanning over 320,000 square meters of construction area, The Super Tower is going to be the main building of The Grand Rama 9 that has already been the new CBD of Bangkok. The Grand Rama 9 located on 73-rai plot of land and its construction area of 1.2. million square meters can serve 200,000-300,000 people per day. The Grand Rama 9, under the BHT 100 billion investment, is comprised of the residential project (Belle Grand Rama 9), the office complex (G Land Tower – The 9th TOWERS – Unilever Headquarters), the convention & shopping arcades (Central Plaza Grand Rama 9-The Shoppes Grand Rama 9), and a luxury hotel.
G Land has recruited SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP (SOM), the world’s top experts, as the consulting firm. The Super Tower Project is designed to meet the platinum certification of US Green Building Council’s LEED. In all, it will be the ultimate acme of Thailand’s engineering and architecture industry as one of the world’s top 10 skyscrapers.
The Super Tower divides space into 3 zones; the premium standard office as a hub of regional headquarters in the ASEAN, the six-star hotel for the world’s top-class guests and it will present tourist attraction with the stunning panoramic view of Bangkok. This will be the first luxury lifestyles center in Thailand.”
“I am confident that the Thai economy is roaring ahead. G Land launches the Super Tower project in response to the government policy to develop Thailand further and establish the country as the economic leader in the region. The Super Tower will be completed in 2019, boasting the huge potential to attract both domestic and foreign investors. The Super Tower will be the pride of all Thais since it will become not just an economic hub of the ASEAN Community but also a definitely world-class attraction,” Mr. Yotin concludes.
