Dusit Central Park: A World-Class Mixed-Use Development at the Heart of Bangkok’s CBD
Dusit Thani Public Company Limited, one of Thailand’s foremost hotel and property development companies with 70 years of expertise, and Central Pattana Public Company Limited, Thailand’s largest and most diversified property developer for 40 years of expertise, have officially revealed a historic collaboration to create a new city landmark and transform a major Silom-Rama4 intersection to become the prime core of the CBD to link 4 key areas of Bangkok with a one-of-a-kind mixed-use project, called ‘Dusit Central Park’. The project is expected to be completed in 2024.
Worth a total of 36.7 billion baht and covering 440,000 sq. m. of prime real estate on the corner of Silom and Rama IV roads, the ambitious project is set to feature luxury residences, a state-of-the-art office tower, a high-end shopping complex with a large rooftop park, and a distinctive reimagining of Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel, Dusit’s iconic flagship property, which served as a symbol of gracious Thai hospitality for 50 years.
Under the concept of “Here for Bangkok”, the project reflects four key pillars: 1) Here for Heritage & Innovation where cultural legacy is put into practice 2) Here for Unrivalled Connectivity highlighting Dusit Central Park as the one-of-a-kind mixed-use project in Bangkok that connects all important infrastructure 3) Here for a Lush Quality of Life where people will get close to nature at Lumpini Park, aka the Lungs of Bangkok, as well as city vibrancy all day all night and 4) Here for Meaningful Experiences where new experiences of modern living reconnects with local communities and green space through a unique project where old meets new. To make Dusit Central Park a true real-estate masterpiece, Thailand’s leading architectural firm that has been known globally for its passion in incorporating Thainess into its works is assigned to oversee all design elements, with world-renowned architectural consultant to help with the creation.
Dusit Central Park is expected to open in three phases. The first one is 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. Alongside Dusit’s unique brand of gracious hospitality, the property will offer the latest in high tech and high touch service.
Central Park Offices, whose 90,000 sq. m. set to be recognized as Professional Hub will provide the ultimate in technology for city workers where connectivity is the priority, suitable for innovative start-ups and large companies and Central Park Shopping Complex, designed to connect all elements, the luxury shopping complex is set to give retail experiences of the future that will create world-class ‘New Urbanized Lifestyle’ that has never seen before. The shopping mall will feature iconic international and local brands over 80,000 sq. m. to meet the needs of various lifestyles. Also topped with Rooftop Park, the shopping complex will provide an expansive outdoor leafy retreat for people to unwind. These two elements will be completed in 2023.
The final part of the project is the residences. Set over 69 storeys, this 389-key tower will be divided into two distinctive sections—Dusit Residences and Dusit Parkside—each managed by Dusit International in line with its unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality. Dusit Residences will comprise 159 luxurious, spacious units on the uppermost floors of the building, offering panoramic views of Lumpini Park. It is designed to provide a luxury standard of living for Bangkok-based executives or travelling executives who regularly visit Thailand, as well as middle- to large-sized families seeking maximum comfort and convenience. Dusit Parkside, meanwhile, will comprise 230 contemporary-styled units, also offering views of Lumpini Park, and is aimed at small-sized families as well as city workers seeking a stylish home in the heart of the capital. Units for both Dusit Parkside and Dusit Residences will be available for long-term rent or leasehold.
