Recommended Posts

Wooooooooohooooooooooooooo I am so exited we had to little shopping as it is!!


25 new Bangkok malls set for 2015




At least 28 new community malls will be opened in Bangkok and suburban areas in 2015-16 in response to growing urbanisation and changing lifestyles.


Community malls accounted for the biggest growth in the retail sector last year. Over a half or 147,000 square metres, out of the total new retail space of 282,600 sq m, came from community malls.


Surachet Kongcheep, associate director of Colliers International (Thailand) Co, said 25 new community malls with over 320,000 sq m were slated to open this year. Among them,14 projects are in western Bangkok including Kalapapruek, Ratchapruek and Phetkasem Soi 48.


Community malls in the western area due to be opened in the first quarter of this year include Metro West Town, Dragon Mall and Pop Market.


Six new community malls including the Jas Lat Plaklao and the Auto Mall will be opened in the north of the capital and the remaining seven projects will be in other locations.


Community malls have taken off in Bangkok due to the changing lifestyles of people who want shopping convenience, while some are popular in major provinces and tourist destinations.


Among the community malls planned to open in major provinces this year are Lime Light community mall in Phuket, the 600-million-baht Posri Village in Udon Thani and Johor Market Place, which will kick off later this year in Nakhon Ratchasima.


Community malls started gaining in popularity in 2005 after the launch of J-Avenue lifestyle mall. It came with the right concept, the right place and at the right time.It was built when Japanese expats flocked to the area and Japanese culture and cuisine started to become more popular among Thais.
