- The new mass transit system
This area has high potential because of the future expansion of the mass transit system.
Currently the only mass transit in the area is the Green BTS Sukhumvit line which is approximately 10 km away from Mega Bangna. This will all change in the next 2 years, with the introduction of the yellow line from Ladprao to Samrong. The real influencer is actually the extension of the Sukhumvit line which is expected to finish in 2022. Once these are completed, this area will have excellent mass transit links in all directions, which will no doubt be reflected in the property prices.
- Shopping central
A key player in this area, Mega Bangna, is aiming to develop further under the concept of “city within the city”. Their vision is to become a mix-used project which includes shopping malls, residential areas and office buildings.
- International schools
For those parents who wish to have their children educated in an international environment, the schools in this area will not disappoint. There are plenty of curriculums offered ranging from the British curriculums, America or International Baccalaureate.
- Office building
This area is already a hotspot for commercial businesses, and it looks like this sector is growing fast. Many investors are excited about the upcoming projects, in particular Bhiraj Tower at Bitec, which completed in 2016; SJ Infinite 2 on Bangna KM 8 and The Mall Group has also announced an enormous project called Bangkok Mall, situated on a plot of some 100 rai, located near to Udom Suk BTS. The development includes businesses, residential spaces, offices, theme park and water park (largest shopping center in asia).
- Gateway to the East
This key geographical area is marking itself as a major hub for people venturing in and out of the city. The area is obviously incredibly popular for companies with airport and logistics operations as it is very closely located to Thailand’s largest airport, Suvarnabhumi. The location also marks the beginning of the Eastern Seaboard and the Eastern Economic Corridor, huge growth areas for Thailand’s commercial markets.
All these factors make this area an excellent investment opportunity as current prices still reflect great value. Sellorate has two exciting projects in the area which are selling fast Ananda Ideo S115 and Areeya A space mega.
