Weltz Residence – Phra Kanong
There can be little doubt that the Skytrain has set in motion a complete rethink for urban developers planning and prioritizing new construction and housing developments, based traditionally on the desirability of land and locations and their proximity to the CBD and other downtown amenities.
But today virtually everything involved in planning and investing in real estate development is driven by the proximity of any potential development to Skytrain routes, now cutting ever longer paths across the city.
In the process, areas in town once not deemed viable for prime property development, and seen as being without high-end residential potential, are these days suddenly in sharp focus and hosting massive new developments as the price of land escalates downtown, forcing demand to piggy-back on the footprint of the BTS system.
One neighbourhood which has seen a transformation since the arrival of the Skytrain is Phra Kanong, once no more than a bustling commercial junction at the Sukhumvit-end of Rama IV, known better for its huge selection of white goods retailers, haberdasheries, markets and lower priced dormitory stock.
But no more.
The area now has the grand title of Midtown Sukhumvit and impressive residential properties are springing up there giving the neighbourhood a brand new perspective and cache, and at the centre of this renaissance of the area stands Weltz Residences, the tallest condominium on Sukhumvit at 50 storeys, and featuring the first luxury condominium lifestyle mall. It even has its own commercial heli-pad on the 50th floor and by early 2014 will have a direct connection to the Phra Kanong BTS station.
The 46th floor is dedicated to a panoramic Sky Lounge and as well as a first class leisure facility indoors, offers amazing panoramic views across the entire city in the 360 degree terraces. Stunning views night and day are guaranteed and sales staff say this feature alone has been enough to persuade buyers to opt in.
The property complex covers 1 rai and 87.5 square wah and comprises two towers: Tower A is known as the Le Luk Condominium, and Tower B has the title Weltz Residences at Skywalk Condominium. A luxury lifestyle mall with an east wing and a west wing fronts the entire complex, and also features the Hi Hip Hostel.
Tower A is a mixed availability property and from a total of 50 floors and 520 available one, two and three bedroom units, with 11 floors and 177 units dedicated as exclusive residential furnished units available only on the 23rd to 28th, 32nd to 34th and 38th to 39th floors. The Weltz Residences provide an extra level of luxury and comfort with a full set of fine furniture and digital door locks, ensuring the highest levels of security for residents.
A typical sized unit ranges from 36.69 – 101.05 square metres, all units are freehold and ready to move in and are fully furnished with extra views from every unit.
Facilities feature fantastic attention to detail and include the Sky Lounge and Lobby with the exclusive Sky Walk, commercial helipad, welcome lobby, swimming pool, Nirvana room, fitness centre, kid’s room, aquarium, waterfall, library and sauna.
The tower has 367 parking spaces and remarkably is the first residential condominium in Thailand with a commercial helipad.
From early 2014 you will also be able to enjoy a direct BTS connection bridge from Prakhanong BTS station to the project.
