The best brand new Bangkok condos and apartments launched along the BTS and MRT in the first half of 2011.
As in previous years Bangkok has seen an exciting boost in the numbers of quality and well located Bangkok condos and apartments in the city center. There has been an influx of new condos in both Sathorn and Sukhumvit. Of course there are too many new condos and apartments in Bangkok to review them all, but here is a selection of some of the best.
First if we start in Sathorn, and area traditionally associated as Bangkok’s CBD, there have been two highly rated condos launched next to the Chong Nonsi BTS station. Condos to rent in Sathorn have previously been a mixture of expensive or poorly located properties that have prevented many expats from regarding the district as a serious alternative to Sukhumvit. However that has now all changed with the launch of The Ivy Sathorn and Life@Sathorn, both reasonably price and well located.
| The Ivy Sathorn condominium contains Studios, One Bedroom and Two Bedroom condos, this high-rise condominium has excellent views of some of the most impressive towers in Bangkok including State Tower and Empire Tower, resulting in spectacular city views.
Renting a condo at the Ivy Sathorn brings you within just a 5-10 minute walking distance of Chong Nonsi BTS station and so is convenient to get to Siam square, Sukhuvmvit and beyond. Of course being located in the heart of the CBD makes it highly convenient for those working for some of the largest international banks, insurance companies and marketing companies located in Bangkok.
Condos for rent in the Ivy Sathorn start at as low as THB 18 000 for a partitioned Studio and feature well set out and well appointed condos. In addition the condominium offers a large swimming pool and fitness area.
|Life@Sathorn condominium is also located within a 5-10 mins walk of Chong Nonsi BTS station, and is also a well constructed and chicly designed condominium. As with the Ivy Sathorn, condos to rent at Life@Sathorn start at only THB 18 000 per month and the building contains Studios, one bedroom units and two bedroom units.
And also like Ivy Sathorn, Life@Sathorn offers not only some fantastic city views, but also a large swimming pool, fitness area and car parking. With the choice of two new well designed and constructed condominiums within 5mins walk of the BTS and BRT stations, Chong Nonsi and Sathorn has become a much more exciting place to live.
Moving away from Sathorn, there have been a number of well designed condominiums built in Sukhumvit, and unlike previous Sukhumvit condominiums these have been built with the new BTS stations in mind.
S & S Condominium in Udomsuk is one of the best new condominium buildings to take advantage of the new BTS stations on the eastern end of Sukhumvit road. Located within a 10mins walk of Udomsuk BTS station, renting a condo in S & S Condominium also offers the convenience of Tops Supermarket, Starbucks, Major Bowl and even the newly located Night Bazaar all within 10mins walk.
|In addition to this S & S condominium offers some of the best value properties in Bangkok. S & S Condominium offers Studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms, with prices starting at THB 12 000 and two bedroom at only THB 20 000. In additional to all of the above if you rent an S & S Condominium you get access to not only a great swimming pool, car parking and fitness studio, but also a beautifully landscaped garden area.
Staying in the Udomsuk district, The Sense condo is another brand new and exciting condominium also featuring Studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units The Sense condominium is a stylishly designed low-rise condominium offering an almost resort style atmosphere, in fact it is easy to feel like you are enjoying the peace and quiet of a resort town whilst remaining in the heart of Bangkok.
| The Sense condominium contains Studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units and can be leased from as low at THB 13 000 per month. Leasing a condo in The Sense, like in S & S Condominium gives residents easy access to both the city center and to the Eastern part of Bangkok. Bang Na and Bang Pli areas are only 10-15mins drive from Udomsuk and of course Suvarnabhumi Airport and Pattaya as well as numerous expressways are within easy access.
