Sukhumvit Plus, now entering its 4th year of operation became landmark and set a benchmark on higher Sukhumvit when opened in 2006. it was the first and most prominent condominium in the Phrakanong area to offer the modern convenient living that was soon to become the trend and direction for all new modern mid-ranged condos in the Sukhumvit area.
Why was Sukhumvit Plus so special?
Well it was built purposefully close to the Phrakanong BTS stations, it was the first Sukhumvit condo to offer chic, stylish and modern affordable living for people in Bangkok. Before Sukhumvit Plus was opened the choice for Sukhmvit residents amounted to the following:
- Live in a stylish modern Sukhumvit Condo close to a BTS station, like The Fullerton close to Ekkamai BTS station, but pay a high price
- Live cheaper and still within walking distance of a BTS station, but sacrifice quality, age and facilities.
- Keep quality, style and facilities at a reasonable cost, but then live further away from a BTS station and face the problem of Bangkok traffic.
But Sukhumvit Plus offered it all! Great facilities with a large pool, saunas and a fitness room/ gymnasium. And all within a 5 minute walk of Phrakanong BTS station. Higher Sukhumvit and Phrakanong in particular had never seen anything like it. Now residents could get a Bangkok Studio apartment in a modern attractive building for just THB 15 000/ month.
Those looking for something a little bigger could get a stylish and intelligently designed one bedroom Bangkok condo in the heart of Sukhumvit for only THB 18 000/month.
And small families looking for great facilities for the kids, plus access to a BTS station and whilst retaining a reasonable rental rate, could get a two bedroom condo in Sukhumvit Plus for under THB 30 000/month.
The success of this brand new Bangkok condominium was evident for everyone to see. There was a time when the success rate of clients seeing the property to taking a condo within Sukhumvit Plus was roughly 1:3, a very high ratio! This prompted other Bangkok property developers and of course Plus Properties themselves to try and repeat and expand on the success of this Bangkok condominium project.
Close by there was a short underdeveloped soi, Sukhumvit Soi 67 was within walking distance of both Ekkamai BTS station and Phrakanong BTS station. With only a few Bangkok apartments on this soi, it was an ideal location to launch a new project.
With Bangkok real estate building laws it was of course not possible to launch another high-rise development like Sukhumvit Plus, so instead Plus 67 an 8 storey low-rise Bangkok condominium was launched.
Again this was a great Sukhumvit condo, with a more intimate atmosphere than Sukhumvit Plus, the views offered by Sukhumvit Plus had been sacrificed, but a far more peaceful and cosy atmosphere was the replacement. With a very inexpensive starting price of just THB 12 000/ month for a Studio condo which is a very competitive price for a Sukhumvit condo within walking distance of a BTS station.
If a Studio condo is not big enough the one bedroom condos offered in Plus 67 are a good size at 50sqm, giving ample room for any bachelor or bachelorette, as well as a couple or a small family. And again at THB 18 000/month are very competitively priced for a condo in Sukhumvit.
Finally in keeping with the great value for these Sukhumvit condos, the two bedroom units are also well priced at under THB 30 000/month and all within a chic, modern condominium block in the heart of Sukhumvit, with swimming pool, sauna and gymnasium.
Plus 67 condominium was another great success and was so good that the same developers built an almost identical property right next door to Plus 67. Condo One 67, was the next successful condominium built in the Phrakanong area.
As we know, this was also within walking distance of Ekkamai BTS and Phrakanong BTS stations.
Again with Studio units starting at just THB 12 000/month, one Bedroom units at THB 16 000/month and two bedroom condo units at just THB 23 000/month, these really are great value Sukhumvit condos.
