DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT Of ESCENT VILLE
With a track record going back more than three and a half decades and winner of countless awards, Central Pattana is the property arm of Thailand’s family-owned Central Group and, as it happens, the number one mall developer in the Land of Smiles. Recognising the potential to boost customer traffic at several of its 30+ global standard shopping centres up and down the country, the company recently founded CPN Residence to expand into the housing market. Even before the dust has settled on their entrant local condo, ESCENT Chiang Mai, the Bangkok-based real estate concern has just unveiled their latest project under the same brand, ESCENT VILLE Chiang Mai. With construction due to get underway early next year, the concept of the destined-to-be deluxe low-rise will embrace bygone Lanna [Northern Thai] culture, latter-day resort style living and, for times ahead, positioned slap bang in the middle of a burgeoning economic hotspot.
In line with the developer’s remit of crafting value-added landmark residences cheek by jowl with their own shopping malls, ESCENT VILLE Chiang Mai will be nestled advantageously on the far side of CentralFestival. As the biggest of its kind in the whole of Northern Thailand, the ultra modern retail complex packs in upwards of 300 shops and restaurants, the “Truly World Class” Central Food Hall, two food courts, a cutting-edge cinema [movie theatre] with IMAX 3D/4DX as well as an ice-skating rink; not to mention playing host to regular events and, most conveniently for residents short of their own set of wheels, providing complimentary shuttle buses operating four routes every day of the week from CentralFestival to stops throughout the fashionable Nimman neighbourhood, the age-old ‘Old City’, Chiang Mai International Airport and the venerable Night Bazaar. Lying only a twenty minute jaunt on foot from the upcoming condo is Chiang Mai’s ‘Provincial Arcade Transport Station’ and ready access to a fleet of private cabs, motorbike taxis, municipal minibuses, red songthaew and tuk tuk covering local destinations plus long-distance single- and double-deckers for travel to dozens of towns and cities across Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the Central provinces, Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket and beyond as far as Luang Prabang in Laos. Nigh on as reachable from ESCENT VILLE condo stands the well-attended Chiang Mai Business Park (CBP) offering a broad mix of commercial and recreational interests; in particular Thailand’s leading home improvement retailer HomePro, furniture and home décor store Index Living Mall and, carrying a full-scale assortment of beverages, fresh and frozen produce, clothes, household appliances, electronic gizmos and personal care items along with a decent food park, bill payment services and thrice weekly night market, the city’s most sizeable and price-busting supermarket, Big C Extra. On top of which, the property will be connected directly with the nearby Super Highway so its inhabitants will profit from rapid, straight-through passage to the likes of Bangkok Hospital for top-tier medical care and the cash and carry titan Makro for groceries at wholesale prices.
Boasting 24-hour security guards on watch at the electronic gated main entrance/exit, CCTV cameras dotted about the premises, keycard-controlled admittance onto the grounds and into the condo buildings themselves in addition to the customary juristic staff on hand inside the shared lobby, residents needn’t have any worries whatsoever about safety while staying at ESCENT VILLE Chiang Mai. Besides featuring a car parking quota sufficient for 154 vehicles and WiFi internet freely available in all common areas, the condo’s inner courtyard will be fringed by lush tropical greenery and star, in its midst, an outdoor saltwater swimming pool with adjoining sun terrace. Overlooking the water’s edge, a suitably provisioned and airy multifunction room in which to kick back in fine style or, if you prefer, slave over a hot laptop! And right underneath which, a fully kitted out fitness amenity for those of a more energetic disposition!
ROOM TYPES, LAYOUT & SPECIFICATION
Set to occupy a little over 5 rai (0.8 hectares) of prime land, the two opposing 8-storey condo buildings of ESCENT VILLE Chiang Mai will together hold 450 completely furnished and air-conditioned units each with an attached personal balcony. Although rather on the cosy side (23, 28 and 32 sq m), 1 bed units look to be perfectly formed and squeeze every last drop of useable space out of the room’s design; 2 bedroom units, on the other hand, are much more generously proportioned at 56 and 69 sq m but likewise are laid out with separate kitchen and living quarters. Judging by the pair of invitingly decked out mock-up rooms within the CPN Residence Sales Office on the fourth floor of CentralFestival, interiors will be decidedly contemporary in character, smartly presented, comfortably appointed, finished in neutral tones and, as an extra safeguard, fronted with digital door locks.
Scheduled for completion during the final quarter of 2020, reservations for ESCENT VILLE Chiang Mai officially opened the first week of this month. But, such is the trusted name and prestige of CPN Residence, the largest 2 bedroom units have already sold out so if you wanna snag any of the others, you’ll have to get a move on!
