PRESS RELEASE: 6 AUGUST 2019
Lead8, the international award-winning design firm, has been appointed to the renowned international team designing One Bangkok. Jointly developed by TCC Assets (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and Frasers Property Holdings (Thailand) Co., Ltd., the highly-anticipated future development will deliver 1.83 million square meters of integrated mixed-use development on a 16 hectare site in the heart of Bangkok.
“Lead8 is incredibly excited to be involved in such a transformational and ground-breaking development as One Bangkok. The vision for the project is truly inspirational and will deliver a world-class destination to elevate Bangkok on the world stage,” said Simon Chua, Co Founder & Executive Director of Lead8.
Located adjacent to the city’s iconic Lumphini Park, One Bangkok will be Thailand’s largest integrated development comprising premium grade A office buildings, luxury and lifestyle hotels, luxury residential towers, interconnected retail precincts, art and cultural hubs, and public space. The development is expected to accommodate up to 200,000 people daily following its full completion in 2026.
Lead8 is working with a team of local and international design consultants to complete the multi-retail development component of One Bangkok.
“Our design has created a network of diverse retail destinations within the One Bangkok district, each with distinctive identities. We are pushing the boundaries and defining new trends in urban development. At the heart of it all is people-centricity, designing to capture and ignite the imagination of the people and community coming to One Bangkok,” added Meeta Patel, Co Founder & Executive Director of Lead8.
One Bangkok aims to be the first LEED-Neighborhood Development Platinum development in Thailand. The development will feature eight hectares of green and open spaces, with architecture and tropical planting seamlessly intertwined to establish a tranquil setting in a vertical environment. An urban green park, combined with a network of pedestrian streets and alleyways, sky parks and public plazas will help to transform Bangkok’s city-centre and become a new global and ‘people-centric’ landmark destination.
The development has commenced construction and is set to open in phases from 2023.
