Chatuchak-Mo-Chit District: The New Potential CBD of Bangkok

Chatuchak-Mo-Chit District: The New Potential CBD of Bangkok

In the past years, The Thai capital has undergone significant reforms with major mega-projects from both governmental and private sectors. The expansion of the city’s mass transit lines indicates that Bangkok is preparing for a brighter future. The condominium market is continuously growing due to insufficiencies of land in downtown locations of Bangkok. Besides, the infrastructure improvements are a major factor that attracts foreign investors to Thailand.  This rapid expansion of the city has triggered various development plans that will be constructed beyond Bangkok’s CBD areas like Asoke, Sathorn, and Silom. It is predicted that the area of Chatuchak-Mo Chit will become the new central business district area of Bangkok.

Investments

According to the Nation, the condominium’s price in Bangkok’s city center is rising to Bt260,000 per square meters. For this reason, visitors and investors are shifting their investments to uptown estates which are far more affordable. The three major overseas investors are from Hong Kong, China, and Japan. Besides, the aspect of transportation and urban infrastructures developments are a crucial fuel to the outer movement of the city.

With extended mass transit lines, Bangkok will be able to provide more convenient access to the outskirts of the city.

Transportation

The highlight of this area is ‘transportation’. The area is well-connected with various transit lines and bus services, operating trips throughout Thailand and neighboring countries.

The area is connected via Mo Chit BTS Green Line and Chatuchak MRT Blue Line with close proximity to Bangkok’s famous Chatuchak Weekend Market. The Chatuchak-Mochit area is also closely located to Bang Sue, which will become the future transport hub of ASEAN with highspeed train services operating transnationally.

The SinoThai Highspeed train is a joint venture between China and Thailand, it will be built in the Bang Sue area with provided routes from Kunming China, via Laos and Thailand, with future extension to Singapore, Malaysia, and The Philippines. The area is also expected to experience a higher population of visitors, which would increase the land value and draw more developments and investments to this part of Bangkok.
