Eager to know what to expect from the DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT of The Erawan Condo?
So named after the three-headed white elephant of Hindu mythology, The Erawan Condo is the newest project by the Home Development Group. Yep, the very same local real estate outfit that brought us My Hip, My Hip 2 and, latterly, The Treasure condos in the Chiang Mai Business Park.
Not content with having already crafted a trio of the city’s best-selling condominiums, the seasoned developer’s stepping up their game to hit even loftier residential heights. Officially ‘The Erawan by Treasure Condo’ looks destined to be not only their most flagship des res yet, but one of the highest end and exclusive pads in all the Northern Rose!
Presales for The Erawan Condo opened in June just gone and though several of the units have since been snapped up by Chinese investors, there’s still a good chunk of the building’s 49% foreign ownership quota up for grabs.
With construction timetabled to kick off in March 2019 and wrapped up by October the following year, the modern low-rise condo delicately blends classic elegance with contemporaryluxuries nestled in a seriously unbeatable downtown spot.
Surely The Erawan Condo is set to occupy the ultimate LOCATION in Chiang Mai!
Given its future position on a plot of a shade more than one rai at the tail [eastern] end of Loi Kroh Road, The Erawan Condo will lie in the heart of the one of the most illustrious and liveliest destinations in the entire nation, the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar! Apart from enjoying Chang Khlan neighbourhood’s greatest retail bonanza conveniently on the doorstep, incalculable opportunities to eat, drink and be merry exist within just a block or two of the condo.
To shout out a precious few of the stand-out attractions: scarcely 50 m away is CUBE for craft coffee and artisan nosh; across the way and venue for the fortnightly Chiang Mai Expats Club breakfast buffet is The River Market resto; a handful of minutes on foot up the same drag is ‘Halal Street’ with its Friday morning Kad Ban Ho farmers’ market for weird and wonderful fresh produce while on the very same alley, a bunch of authentic Muslim eateries; not as far again is the mightiest commercial complex in Chiang Mai, the interconnected Warorot and Ton Lam Yai day markets amid Chinatown.
Back down Charoen Prathet Road, residents can get a taste of both history and chow at the recently opened ‘Ancient House’; a ‘cultural antique mall’ sheltering a charming traditional wooden huen (meaning ‘home’ in the Lanna lingo) originally fashioned in 1867 and now a branch of The Chocolate Factory shop, café and restaurant! Or after crossing the iconic Iron Bridge (Sapaan Lek) over the Ping River, a 60 second mosey farther is Rimping Supermarket’s debut [Nawarat] store for premium groceries. Then onward along the yang na tree-fringed Chiang Mai-Lamphun Road to the likes of Nong Hoi wet market.
Some of the highlight after dark hangouts within the easiest of staggering distances from The Erawan Condo include the right alongside Downunder Pub, an Aussie sports bar and bistro; on the same stretch of Loi Kroh Road, passed the biggest Chinese temple in town (Samakkee Charity Foundation) is Chiang Mai’s only Hard Rock Cafe for scoffing a signature ‘Legendary Burger’ and knocking back a Bourbon Brownie Shake; mere strides further on, The Red Lion English boozer’s rarely short of clientele or, for that matter, cheer during the evenings; and literally round the corner in nearby Anusarn Market is O’Malley’s Irish Pub for bountiful supplies of the black stuff on draft as well as home from home fare; though it’s closed for an ‘extensive revitalisation’ at this present moment, the landmark hotel that is Pornping Tower on Charoen Prathet Road boasts the highest rooftop bar in the city and the perfect place to catch jaw-droppin’ 360° vistas over sundowner cocktails. And not forgetting that Chiang Mai’s walled and moated ‘Old City’ is situated less than a quarter of an hour’s effortless stroll from The Erawan Condo!
What ON-SITE AMENITIES to look forward to at The Erawan Condo?
Among the line-up of safeguards at The Erawan Condo will be a troop of security personnel keeping watch at the one and only way in and out every minute of the day and night; a system of closed-circuit television cameras surveilling shared areas of the property; plus, electronic keycard-controlled access – in a word, Erawan’s residents needn’t lose a wink of sleep when it comes their personal safety staying on the premises.
Split between the ground and first floors, the indoor private parking at the condo will support exactly 41 cars with no less than 13 bays earmarked for motorbikes. Beyond which, a suitably stylish communal lobby lounge complete with complimentary WiFi internet on tap and incorporating the usual juristic office.
From where climbin’ the stairs or hoppin’ either of the twin lifts [elevators] up however many levels will reward the recreationally inclined with The Erawan Condo’s fittingly five-star recreational features. On the second floor, an epically sized open-air swimming pool and waterside wood-panel sundeck sprinkled with the customary collection of day beds and effects; on the third floor, a generously stocked fitness facility kitted out with advanced workout gear for folks of a more active temperament; whilst the fourth floor will star a lush tropical garden as a green oasis at which to retreat from the urban clamour outside!
PREMIER ROOMS at The Erawan Condo well worth waiting for!
The Erawan Condo will stand as a single eight-storey building comprising, from the second to the top floor, 84 units overall; 49 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom suites offering 38 to 47 sq m of useable space and 35 2 bed suites between 75 and 106 sq m with either of 1 or 2 bathrooms. Going on the pair of sample rooms in the on-site sales gallery, every unit will come fully built-in furnished and altogether air-conditioned with floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass-walled balcony commanding sceneries across whichever of the city to the north, the Ping River to the east, Anusarn Market to the south or the Night Bazaar and Doi Suthep-Pui mountains to the west.
Optimally laid out with open-plan living/dining and a separate kitchen, the boldly designed interiors are refinely and voguishly appointed; making use of the primest quality materials imported direct from China, Germany and the U.S., and finished throughout to a flawless standard. Not to mention being rigged with innovative smart tech like sensor triggered lighting which, like the A/C, can also be controlled remotely through the occupier’s own (compatible) mobile device! Oh, and each unit’s capped off with a three-way digital door lock as an additional safety precaution.
