Enviably sited on the Chiang Mai-Doi Saket Road 200m from the San Dek Intersection, ESCENT Chiang Mai lies in the very heart of the city’s latest economic hotspot directly behind Central Festival; representing the biggest shopping centre in the entire region, the futuristic-looking mall boasts more than 300 shops and restaurants in addition to Central Food Hall (said to be Asia’s finest supermarket), a couple of food courts, a weekly night market, a state-of-the-art cinema with IMAX 3D/4DX, an ice-skating rink and, convenient for those lacking transport. This free shuttle bus service operates four routes daily from CentralFestival to designated venues throughout the city.
Poised just a short ten-minute stroll from the condo are Terminals 2 and 3 of the ‘Provincial Arcade Transport Station’, offering residents access to white city buses, red songthaew, tuk-tuk, licensed private cabs and motorcycle taxis serving local destinations as well as long-distance public buses travelling to a multitude of different towns and cities throughout Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the Central provinces, Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket and even as far as Luang Prabang in Laos.
Barely any less reachable from ESCENT Chiang Mai is the well-trafficked Chiang Mai Business Park (CBP), home to a wide array of commercial and leisure outlets, including DIY store HomePro, furniture retailer Index Living Mall, the upcoming Platinum Fashion Mall and sheltering an extensive selection of fresh and frozen foodstuffs, beverages, personal care products, clothing, household appliances, electronic devices along with a sizeable food park and bill payment facilities, the city’s largest and most cost-conscious hypermarket, Big C Extra.
Owing to the condo’s proximity to the Super Highway, residents benefit from having fast, uninterrupted passage to Bangkok Hospital and a branch of the wholesaler Makro.
Residents need not have any apprehensions about security staying at ESCENT Chiang Mai by virtue of the round-the-clock attendance of duly outfitted guards, CCTV installed throughout the premises, electronic keycard-controlled entry through either of the main gates and admittance into the condo building itself, three ‘floor-lock’ lifts (elevators), digital door locks and, for extra reassurance, an on-site juristic person. In addition, the development features multi-storey car parking on floors 1 to 4 with a collective availability of approximately 40%, but, as an exclusive privilege of living at ESCENT Chiang Mai, residents are also entitled to complimentary VIP parking at CentralFestival mall.
Sharing the first floor is a brightly lit, invitingly appointed and comfortably seated communal lobby. Beyond this, residents can unwind and relax in the professionally landscaped lush “Stair Garden” or the decadently presented and airy “Living Lounge”.
In all common property areas, WiFi internet is provided free of charge. Although it won’t eclipse either of the Supalai Monte twin towers in the battle for the ascendancy of the Chiang Mai skyline, the top two floors of the 26-storey ESCENT Chiang Mai command positively breathtaking near 360-degree vistas overlooking the surrounding urban environment and mountainscapes from its glass-panelled wrap-around Sky Lounge set amid tropical greenery or rooftop “infinity-edge” open-air swimming pool, adjoining sun deck, sauna or fully-equipped fitness amenities.
Established on more than two rai (0.32 hectares) of prime land, the single L-shaped condo building accommodates 400 furnished, air-conditioned and balconied residential units spread over floors 5 to 24. While absent altogether of studio rooms, the condo incorporates one bedroom, one bathroom units (variously 24, 31 or 35 sq m and laid out with open-plan living/dining/kitchen) and two-bedroom, one-bathroom units (each 42 sq m and arranged as combined living/dining quarters with separate kitchen); despite being considerably more compact than the average size of 1 and 2 bedroom units elsewhere in Chiang Mai, units are excellently designed to maximise every last millimetre of habitable space.
