The EM District
Emporium, EmQuartier, EmShpere Shopping District0
The EM District on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Road is an ambitious multi-billion baht retail project comprising three different luxury shopping malls. All set around the central Phrom Phong BTS Station, two-thirds of EM District is already complete, with the refurbishment of the long-standing Emporium Mall and construction of the impressive EmQuartier both finished in 2015.
Construction of the final ‘EmSphere’ mall – a futuristic glass dome-shaped structure next to Benjarisi Park – is set to be completed by the end of 2016.

The Mall Group’s first ever project in central Bangkok, Emporium has always been about the luxury brands, upscale restaurants, and sleek white interiors; an overall theme continued by the EM District today. The makeover in 2015 wasn’t particularly extensive, although the building’s aging exterior has been covered up by some shiny new white panels and glass windows.
Spread over six floors, Emporium houses plenty of high-end labels such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Prada, Hermes, Cartier, and Mont Blanc as well as a few less expensive fashion stores, a cinema, food court and kid’s play centre. There is direct access from Phrom Phong BTS Station and it’s also attached to Read More...
EmQuartier has really been the driving force behind The Mall Group’s new ‘EM District’ concept. Opened mid-way through 2015, this is easily Bangkok’s most glamorous, visually stunning mall – unlike anything that exists in the city. Even if you can’t afford the designer brands, just the architecture is enough to lure in the crowds, with highlights including a multi-tiered façade lit up by giant LED screens, a rooftop garden, central atrium with cascading waterfall, a 100-metre-long ‘rainforest chandelier’, skywalks… the list goes on.
Designer brands include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Jimmy Choo, Valentino and Fendi while some slightly more budget-friendly options can be found too Read More...
EmSphere (opening late 2016)
The third and final retail project comprising the EM District might just be the most ambitious, although details at the moment are sparse.
From the press-released image, we know it’s going to take on an incredible glass dome design as the central building, with two other structures either side. We also know the site, which is set on an empty plot of land next to Benjasiri Park just a short walk from Phrom Phong BTS Station and the rest of the EM District complex. Expect more in the way of luxury fashion, lifestyle brands and upscale dining.
