2010 saw over 4 000 Bangkok condominium units transferred on Sukhumvit road alone. This is a massive number of condos to rent on Sukhumvit, making Sukhumvit a very attractive area to rent a condo in Bangkok. Of course like with anything, some Sukhumvit condominium buildings stand out as better then others, whether this is due to value for money, quality, style, facilities or location. Here we will review the best condos completed on Sukhumvit for 2010, based on the ones that impressed our clients the most and the reasons why.
Life@Sukhumvit 65 or also known as just Life@65 is one of the best new condos to rent in Bangkok, never mind being one of the best new condos to rent on Sukhumvit. Located in Ekamai near the Ekamai BTS station Life@Sukhumvit 65 is a high-rise condominium building nearly 30 storey’s tall. With facilities such as a large swimming pool, roof top fitness area and saunas, as well as the usual 24hr security and car parking associated with quality Bangkok condos. However what makes Life@Sukhumvit 65 so popular with expats is the combination of all the above coupled with an excellent location. Just 5 mins walk from the nearest BTS station, and just 10 minutes walk from a cinema, supermarket and shopping mall.
|Life@Sukhumvit 65 offers superb views of Bangkok and the surrounding Ekamai areas, and is only 15mins travel to Siam Square via the BTS. With small 1 bedroom condo units starting at just 15 000 Baht renting this Ekamai condominium is great value.
Also staying in the same location, renting a condo in Ekamai has never been so attractive. With so many Bangkok condos to choose from depending upon your requirements and budget, the choice is varied. One of the best is Life@Sukhumvit 65’s sister building Life@67, located in Sukhumvit soi 67 is another excellent condo to rent in Ekamai.
Some of your clients prefer to rent a Bangkok condo in a low-rise building, whether this is due to a fear of heights or just the more intimate feeling a low-rise condo can offer. For this reason Life@67 can offer a great quality Ekamai condo for rent in a well constructed and styled low-rise building.
Moving along the BTS line we will look at two condos to rent in Thonglor. Both opened at the turn of the year in 2010, these condos for differing reasons have proved to be both popular and highly rated by our clients in 2010. Siri@Sukhumvit is a high-end Bangkok condominium located just 2-3 minutes walk from the BTS Thong Lo station. With a beautiful large lobby, excellent views and well appointed condo units, this striking building has proved to be popular with clients looking for both the convenience of the BTS and luxury of a Grade A condominium.
Further inside Thonglor road it is The Clover Thonglor, an excellently located mid-range condominium in the heart of Thong Lo. The Clover is a cluster of low-rise condos grouped around 2 large centrally located swimming pools.
And then looking around in the immediate location there are 2 supermarkets within 5 minutes waking distance, dozens of cafes and dozens of restaurants not to mention convenience stores. This is the heart of the Japanese district of Bangkok and perhaps one of the most up-market and trendy areas to live in.
The next location we will look at it is for those who are looking to rent a Bangkok condo in the Phrom Phong district of Sukhumvit. The Emporio Place Phrom Phong is located within 400m of the Phrom Phong BTS station and The Emporium shopping plaza. This high-end Grade A condominium offers the chance to rent in one of the most convenient and luxurious areas of Bangkok.
With access to Sukhumvit Road, Rama IV road, Rama IV expressway and many Sukhumvit sub sois, Emporio Place is one of the best located condominiums on Sukhumvit. And with 3 buildings all located around a central area, it offers those wishing to rent a condo in Emporio Place a wide range of options. With large studios, 1 bedrooms, 1 bedroom duplex units, 2 bedrooms, 2 bedroom duplexes and 3 bedrooms, there really is a wide-range of choice for those looking to live in the Emporio Place.
Travelling along the BTS one more station we come to Asok BTS station, which interchanges with Sukhmvit MRT station. For those looking to rent a condo in Asoke, then the latest and best condo to be built in the Asoke area is The Wind 23 Asok.
So these are our choice of the best new condos to rent on Sukhumvit and ones that have proved extremely popular with our clients over the last 12 months. With the quality and locations of these properties so high, we look forward to see if it is possible for condominium developers to step up the new condos not yet complete to an even higher level…it will be a tough task!
