Mr. Panote Sirivadhanabhakdi, Group CEO, Frasers Property Limited stated, "One Bangkok will reshape and redefine Bangkok's urban landscape in a positive and lasting way as the largest private sector property development initiative undertaken in Thailand.

As seen in Frasers Property Limited's global portfolio, including Central Park in Sydney and Frasers Tower, Singapore, One Bangkok drew on a world-class collaboration of designers including word-renowned urban designer Skidmore Owings & Merrill and top Thai architectural firm A49 to create its mixed-use development.

One Bangkok will create a focal point for business in central Bangkok, giving the city a new economic engine with a combined office NLA of almost 500,000 sqm., home to over 500 local and international organizations. 

Four differentiated retail precincts offer 450 stores covering over 180,000 sqm, will redefine the shopping experience for Bangkok, offering a wide range of leisure activities and social experiences with things to do all day through to the night.

With five new-to-market hotels, the district's comprehensive suite of hospitality options will offer a combined 1,100 rooms, delivering the finest hospitality and local lifestyle experiences, with the first -- The Ritz-Carlton, Bangkok -- scheduled to open in 2023. 

Combining a prestige address with the pleasure of park-side living, three luxury residential towers at One Bangkok will provide unprecedented vistas of the city's largest parks. Its first residences, comprising of just 110 ultra-luxury apartments, will launch in early 2020.

One Bangkok's crowning achievement is its 430-metre Signature Tower, housing office spaces and a super luxury hotel. Set to become one of ASEAN's ten tallest buildings, it will offer visitors panoramic views of Bangkok's skyline.

Integrating art and culture throughout the district, One Bangkok aims to be a must-visit cultural destination, providing public art, learning spaces, as well as performing arts and concerts all year round.
