Urban living has been getting more and more popular among the young, successful, and rising generations of adults around the world. They want to live in city centres where everything they need is within easy reach. They also want the convenience of having good restaurants, bars, coffee shops, tea houses, upscale shopping malls, hospitals, and schools for their kids to be within walking distance from their homes.
The popularity of city life has created a new trend in housing developments for urban villas in the heart of city, where available land plots for new developments are limited and, in some cases, unable to meet the requirements of high-end homebuyers, who need homes with utmost privacy and all-inclusive functions in prime locations which allow them to appreciate urban life. In the world’s major cities like Singapore, one of the most luxurious residential developments – “The Ladyhill”, where only 55 freehold units are offered in seven blocks of four-storey buildings, located in the heart of the city, just a few steps to Orchard Road. In Hong Kong, one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world, the priciest residential project on Victoria Peak (a.k.a. ‘The Peak’) is 8 Severn Road, a super-luxury housing project with only 22 Italian-style houses. It is situated on Severn Road, a winding street of mansions that is one of the priciest addresses on the planet.
According to CBRE Thailand, prices of prime land in the central business district of Bangkok have shown no signs of easing and are continuing to rise. While there are only a handful of prime transactions in a given year, scarcity is the key factor that keeps pushing prices up. Last year, land prices reached record highs of THB 1.9 million per square wah in the Chidlom-Ploenchit-Lumpini area, THB 1.75 million in Su-khumvit Road, and THB 1.45 million in the Silom-Sathorn area. As land prices will continue to increase, new condo prices will keep rising as well. During 2010-2016, asking price of new condo supply increased 10.9% per year on average. The highest average condo price per sq metre was in central Lumpini, at 250,363 baht, followed by Sukhumvit at 239,946 baht, and Silom-Sathorn at 220,395 baht. Average prices overall were 247,613 baht. With the attractive increases in residential prices for properties in prime locations, it is a good opportunity for those looking to acquire prime property investment assets in central Bangkok, as they have very limited supply, particularly in the most sought-after locations like Sukhumvit.
