The iconic 50-story landmark soaring in the heart of fashionable Sukhumvit Roadwill be the tallest buildings in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok when completed in 2016 – with a rarefied lifestyle to match.
Promising to set a new benchmark for top-end apartments in the Thai capital, it brings an exceptional location and quality for those with a penchant for the finest.
A total of 149 residences are exceptionally spacious, with two and three-bedroom apartments starting from 124 sqm (1,335 sqft) and penthouses up to 600 sqm (6,458 sqft).
The project has already achieved pricing starting at THB 32 million (S$1.28 million) during pre-sales to the elite Thai families. This is among the highest per sqm in Bangkok, reflecting the project's ‘super luxury' status in a class of its own.
“We are creating a landmark on Sukhumvit that will be synonymous with the best of luxury living,” says Dr Suriya Poolvoralaks, Managing Director of developer Major Development Public Company Ltd.
“MARQUE Sukhumvit will be the epitome of exclusive city lifestyle for the global elite in Bangkok, offering luxury features such as private elevators, golf simulator, chlorine-free swimming pool and detached walls where the units do not touch each other”, he said.
Prestige is heightened by the location across from Sukhumvit 24 and beside Sukhumvit 39. The project is across the street from the Emporium shopping mall and a few steps away from the new EmQuartier (Emporium 2), and Bhiraj Tower, the first Grade A office building in Sukhumvit designed after 1997. It is also just a stroll from Phrom Pong BTS station.
The location in mid-Sukhumvit Road is destined to become Bangkok's most exclusive residential areas with MARQUE Sukhumvit at its pinnacle “for those who seek a lifestyle that exceeds the high-end and enters the realm of super-luxurious”, says Dr Suriya.
The two and three-bedroom condos feature floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize panoramic views and spacious living and dining rooms. Seven 600 sqm (6,458 sqft) penthouses on the 44-49th floors boast their own private swimming pools and expansive terraces.
The name ‘MARQUE' derives from the word “marquise” – a type of a diamond cut which symbolizes the landmark's striking architectural design, inspired by quartz crystals, polished diamonds and prisms. Soaring 222-metres, it is the tallest condominium on Sukhumvit Road.
Aliwassa Pathnadabutr, CBRE Thailand Managing Director added: “MARQUE Sukhumvit aims not only to be a statement of modern glamour, but also a community of congenial residents whose lives will be buoyed by being able to lead a charmed life in a location and style unmatched anywhere else in Bangkok.
“It elevates luxury living to another level with its unrivalled location on one of the most exclusive and vibrant roads in Bangkok. From its remarkable architectural design to the bespoke detailing, every aspect of the residences delivers the ultimate in perfection and a unique experience on every level.”
MARQUE Sukhumvit targets business owners, senior executives and established families, including expats from Hong Kong and Singapore, who enjoy urban lifestyles and prefer to stay close to the city center.
The building's residential area has three zones. Legacy extends from floors 8-34, Heritage, with additional premium facilities including the option of a balcony Jacuzzi, is located from floors 35-42, and the sky-high penthouses are separated from the other zones with their own Sky Floor facilities.
Each unit has a private lift lobby and as befits a ‘super-luxury' project, apartments are unfurnished, with investors invited to bring in their own designers to tailor residences to their own style.
State-of-the-art family-oriented facilities include a salt water, ozone-treated swimming pool, kids' room and pool, Jacuzzi, golf simulator, fitness center, spa, sauna and steam rooms, aerobics and yoga studio, squash court, and both outdoor and indoor multi-purpose areas.
Lots of space has been set aside for green space for the residents including a 400 sqm (4,300 sqft) recreational park on the ground floor, leafy outdoor deck on the 7th floor and a 60 sqm (645 sqft) Sky Garden on the 50th floor. Many apartments, and all penthouses, also have large enough terraces to accommodate gardens.
Glamorous venues comparable to any 5-star hotel also include two lounges that serve as a library, the Sky Cigar & Wine Bar, and an outdoor Sky Floating Deck above a reflecting pool. Business functions can be accommodated in two meeting rooms.
Major Development reports brisk early sales “due to limited supply of super luxury products and pent up demand for premium condominium of larger sizes”.
Major Development PCL is one of Thailand's leading developers in high-end condominiums, and MARQUE Sukhumvit is the biggest condominium project the company has ever developed. Founded in 1999, Major Development became a public company listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand in 2006. As of 2013, the company has developed 22 projects with a combined value of 43 billion THB (S$1.69 billion).
