Dusit Thani and Central Pattana (CPN) have unveiled their vision of a new city landmark and mixed-use project called ‘Dusit Central Park’ at the major Silom-Rama IV intersection.
The project, which will link directly with the Bangkok BTS (Skytrain) systems and MRT (Mass Rapid Transit underground), at Silom and Sala Daeng stations, respectively, is expected to be completed in 2024.
Worth a total of 36.7 billion baht and covering 440,000 sqm of prime real estate on the corner of Silom and Rama IV roads, the project will feature luxury residences, an office tower, a high-end shopping complex with a large rooftop park, and a distinctive reimagining of the Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel, Dusit’s iconic flagship property, which served as a symbol of gracious Thai hospitality for 50 years.
“We aim to deliver a one-of-a-kind mixed-use project that blends heritage and innovation, connects all important infrastructure and transportation, embraces a green concept reflecting our prime position opposite Lumpini Park, and delivers enduring value for all our stakeholders,” said Ms. Suphajee Suthumpun, Group Chief Executive, Dusit Thani. “By blending the best of Thai design and hospitality with international standards of service, we will create a new city landmark that reflects our past, embraces our present, and anticipates the future. By doing so, we will continue the legacy of Dusit Thani Bangkok, following the same principles Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui had when she founded the hotel – to be bold and do great things, to create things that never existed before, and to always have a positive impact.”
Dusit Central Park is expected to open in three phases.
The First Phase will be the Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel. Designed to preserve the rich architectural and artistic heritage of the original hotel, the new 39-storey, 250-key Dusit Thani Bangkok will feature a modern-yet-familiar design that incorporates significant elements from the original hotel. A grand ballroom overlooking Lumpini Park will be a highlight, as will a multi-level rooftop bar and lounge.
The Second Phase will be the 90,000 sqm Central Park Office and 80,000sqm Central Park Shopping Complex. These two elements will be completed in 2023.
The Final Phase of the project will be the residences. Set over 69 floors, this 389-key tower will be divided into two distinctive sections – the 159 Dusit Residences and 230 Dusit Parkside – each managed by Dusit International. Units for both Dusit Parkside and Dusit Residences will be available for long-term rent or leasehold. Bookings are expected to open soon.
