PHUKET: Local developer Phanason has broken ground on its next “city-living” project – the Height Condominium, an eye-catching medium-rise development in Phuket Town.
The 15-storey project is sure to attract wide interest among buyers and speculators in the city’s ever-fluid, yet lucrative residential real estate market.
Elaborating on the project’s concept, Phanason marketing manager, Cheurchan Panvikarn told the Phuket Gazette that The Height will be a “modern tropical condo… the tower in town designed to meet the needs of people who love the city-living lifestyle.”
“With a low buy-in price, all classes of customers can afford to be a co-owner in this project – students, employees, and even tourists… We are offering high-end design, facilities and rooms with sea-views and city-views – modern-living starting at just a million baht.”
As the saying goes, location is everything, and this looks to be the project’s prime selling point; the 40-meter-high condo will claim a noticeable spec on the city’s rapidly changing skyline, to be erected on a prime block in what many Phuket urbanites would agree is the “true heart” of Phuket Town – just at the foot of Tor Sae Hill, off Suthat Road (Montri Road).
Just a hop and skip from Seng Ho Bookstore and Satree Phuket School (click here for map), the project is just 1.4 kilometers away from Ocean Plaza and Robinson Department Store, and likewise, a stone’s throw to most of the island’s main government offices, markets and public parks.
When looking at the project plans, the first thing that pops out is an aesthetic layout of the building’s rooftop – highlighted by a helicopter landing pad and infinity edge swimming pool, promising to afford 360 degree views of the city and a picturesque sea-view to the east.
To be developed on a plot spanning 2,920 square meters, just under two rai, The Height condominium will offer 301 units on 14 floors (the full-function rooftop counted as the 15th storey). Units will range in size from 27 to 48 square meters, and come in three types – one-bedroom, two-bedroom and studio units. The majority of rooms will be 27sqm, starting from a million baht, while the largest rooms – 15 in all – will be a spacious 48sqm, priced from 2.2 million baht.
Amenities and security will be standard for the market, with a manned / CCTV security system, as well as a fitness center, swimming pool and car parking which, will be available on the ground, with covered parking on the ground floor of the building, as well as two floors of underground parking integrated into the plans.
Clearing of the plot, right next to the Sikh Temple, has already commenced, with the project scheduled to be completed within three years.
To lure early birds, the developer is offering some considerable sign-on incentives: Only 5,000 baht is needed to reserve a unit and monthly installments (on the down payment) start at only 5,000 baht, with tenants to get free air-conditioning, wallpaper and furniture. Early bookings will also receive a discount of 100,000 baht, valid until the end of this month. The project is supported by Kiatnakin Bank.
