On the 9th and 10th of November 2018, a new luxury shopping, restaurant, entertainment and residential complex has been unveiled to the public.
The 54 billion-baht (US$ 1.5 billion) project funded by Siam Piwat group in joint venture with MQDC Magnolia Quality Development and Charoen Pokphand Group is likely to be the number one luxury complex in all Thailand.
With 525,000 m² of retail floor space and a total of 750,000 m² of occupied land, the ICONSIAM is also a world-class wonder of architecture: the 300 meters long glass façade along the banks of the Chao Phraya River is inspired by the Krathong (traditional elaborately-folded banana leaves, handcrafted for festivals and special occasions) and detains the record for the longest pleated glass façade in the world made with a superclear high-quality glass imported from Germany. The 10,000 m² riverfront also features a 400 meters long dancing fountain, the longest in SouthEast Asia, with audiovisual (music and lights) support, creating an outstanding spectacle better to be enjoyed during nighttime. Furthermore, the ICONSIAM’s design is inspired by the traditional Thai dress, wrapped around its most valuable part, the ICONLUXE.
The ICONSIAM complex is divided into three main sections: ICONSIAM, the main building, ICONLUXE facing the river, and the Siam Takashimaya facing the street, the most iconic and successful Japanese department store which represents the first opening in Thailand by Takashimaya at full-scale covering 35,000 m².
Each section is then further divided into different areas: from Sook Siam, featuring all the best local and artisanal items from fashion to handicrafts from all of the 77 provinces of Thailand, to the River Museum Bangkok set to open in July 2019 showcasing masterpieces from all over the world, to ICON CINECONIC entertainment complex featuring 14 luxurious cinemas equipped with the latest multimedia technologies, TrueICON Hall a world class facility for MICE and events, over 500 retailers (20% of which representing their first ever presence in the country) and over 100 restaurants including world renowned names.
The residential part of this incredible ICONSIAM complex is comprised of the Magnolia Waterfront Residences (315m tall, 70 floors, 300 units) and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok (272m tall, 52 floors, 146 units). Both are world-class luxurious residential condominium buildings and the two towers are among the tallest buildings in Bangkok’s skyline.
