    Bangkok’s New Tallest Building


    MahaNakhon will finally give Bangkok an iconic skyscraper befitting Asia’s most visited city. This cubic masterpiece twists 77 floors (or 314 metres, just 10 metres taller than Bayoke tower, current highest building which is 304 m) into the sky and when it is finally completed (scheduled for completion in late-2015) it will function as a multi-purpose building housing a shopping mall, garden plaza, fine dining restaurants, office space, Bangkok’s first Ritz-Carlton Hotel and ultra-luxe apartments. On the very top three floors there will be a multi-level restaurant, bar and outdoor terrace with 360 degree views towering over Bangkok.

  • Designed in part by the same team involved in Beijing’s Olympic stadium ‘The Bird’s Nest’, MahaNakhon is located in Sathorn in downtown Bangkok, part of the Central Business District and surrounded by financial institutions and other five star hotels. Chong Nonsi BTS Skytrain Station is only a few steps from the MahaNakhon building and is planned to have a direct walkway into the building.

    Next door to the skyscraper there will be an additional shopping and dining area called MahaNakhorn Cube and a central garden area occupying the space in between, which we are led to believe will hold frequent cultural events and bring some much-needed greenery to the Sathorn area of Bangkok. Several restaurants have already opened, such as Dean & Deluca bistro, VOGUE Lounge, and the much-anticipated L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant from the culinary legend Joel Robuchon, who was honoured with the title of Chef of the Century by esteemed restaurant guide Gault Millau.

    The pixelated design of MahaNakhon Bangkok will be the biggest architectural change to Bangkok in a generation and the buzz is already palpable, as the luxury restaurants and brands it attracts will surely put Bangkok on the same scale as anything in the financial city states of Hong Kong or Singapore, proven by the price of the most expensive penthouse apartments for sale: 550 million baht (US$17 million).
