DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
With a bloodline in Chiang Mai going back generations, the Somsriwangtongkum family business was incorporated not two years ago to forge their kickoff local condominium project, Hilltania. Having joined forces with one of Thailand’s top and internationally acclaimed architectural practices, the 49Group, the low-rise residence promises cutting-edge modern structural form and the highest calibre of interior and landscape design where “no detail is too small”. Set to be among the most lavish and exclusive pieces of residential real estate in the Northern region, the distinctly boutique Hilltania will proudly offer intimate, carefree, contemporary living embedded in one of Chiang Mai’s condo hotspots.
Positioned within the central stretch of Canal Road (Khlong Chonprathan) but standing well back from the thoroughfare, Hilltania lies just inside the geographical limits of Jed Yod; named after its fifteenth century Indian style –yet little patronised- Buddhist wat [temple], the typically Thai neighbourhood’s easily explored on foot with many a mom and pop shophouse restaurant on tap and the setting for, well, more than a fair share of love hotels! On the opposite side of Irrigation Road, the equally domestic suburb of Chang Khian; home to several lively farmers’ markets, gloriously leafy sois [side streets] and, flanking the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, no shortage of undisturbed green spaces. Of course, with ready access to Chiang Mai’s multi-lane Outer Ring Road, Hilltania’s occupants will be only minutes drive from some of the leading spots in town. Along Huay Kaew Road, by way of Phucome junction, is Malin Plaza; now starring The Chiangmai Complex with its sprawling food zones dishing up lip-smacking and fabulous value Thai, western, Japanese and Korean nosh. Not to mention sheltering the fantastically atmospheric evening pop-up market, Kad Na Mor, well trodden by image-conscious local teens for its bargain basement fashion and accessories. Only the briefest walk away, the main (northern) entrance to Chiang Mai University’s largest campus; occupying nearly three square kilometres and more akin to a mini town, the partially wooded grounds harbour a riot of student-priced cafeteria, coffee shops and bakeries as well as a post office, branches of the major Thai banks, a computer- and WiFi-outfitted public library and, in the north west part, the pretty as a picture Ang Kaew lake and a must-visit at sundown. No less convenient from the condo is the perennially popular and decidedly 21st century Maya Lifestyle mall and, practically on the doorstep, the start of the Super Highway and northern verge ofNimmanahaeminda Road; together with its namesake branching lanes, Chiang Mai’s most happening dining and entertainment hangout with its horde of ritzy watering holes, offbeat cafés, cosmopolitan restaurants and independent retail outfits.
On top of the familiar complement of 24-hour security guards presiding over the dual barriered approach to Hilltania, closed-circuit surveillance cameras will exist throughout common areas with electronic keycard admittance onto the premises and into the single condo building itself. All told, the property will support eight bays for dropping off plus another 21 outdoor car parking spaces. Within the bounds of the plushly appointed and stunningly stylish glass-fronted communal lobby, a reception desk with customary juristic staff and, for getting online, supplied with complimentary WiFi internet. Showcasing upscale leisure amenities to boot, condo residents will be able to enjoy a refreshing dip in the secluded open-air swimming pool, lounge on the sun deck or take a gentle stroll around the luxuriant English garden before coming to rest at the gazebo. For those who’d rather engage in a brisker bodily workout, Hilltania will boast a fully stocked fitness room and, fringing the building, a tree-lined jogging track.
ROOM TYPES, LAYOUT & SPECIFICATION
From the first floor upwards, the 7-storey condo building of Hilltania will feature a collection of just 47 select residential units and while not quite entirely furnished, still fully equipped and air-conditioned. Besides a pretty cosy 29.95 sq m unit, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 balcony units start at a more or less standard 35.86 sq m through to a much more amply proportioned 55.00 sq m; 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 balcony units, on the other hand, will afford 94.05 to 109.87 sq m of liveable space; there is also a sole duplex unit sized at a mighty 235.05 sq m and split over the 6th and 7th floors though, not surprisingly, it’s long since been snapped up! Bar none, each and every unit will be specially designed in an open-concept living, dining and integrated kitchen layout with, save for the smallest unit type, a discrete study area providing the optimum and most flexible use of space. With full width floor-to-ceiling windows, expect interiors to be saturated with natural light and rooms facing westward will command an almost unobstructed sweeping backdrop of the nearby Thanon Thong Chai range of mountains. Going by the look and feel of the seductively presented mock-up room, units should deliver the utmost refinement without compromising either comfortability or functionality in the least. Finished in earth tones with enduring clean, sleek lines, no expense will be spared in provisioning rooms with warm wood, cool marble and superior quality household brands from Mex appliances and Hansgrohe bathroom fittings to Art DNA light switches.
Right now, construction of Hilltania condo is in progress with the transfer of units purchased off-plan due to take place around June or July of this year(2018).
