Punna Chiang Mai, Meaning town or community in the Northern Thai [Lanna] regional dialect, the word ‘Punna‘ embodies the core design philosophy of its namesake property developer. For more than a decade, the Punna Group has accomplished a solid reputation for constructing residential real estate in Chiang Mai to consistently high standards while promising residents an unsurpassed quality of life in terms of comfort, service, convenience and luxury. Completed in March 2010, Punna Residence @ Nimman represented the Group’s debut project and, though since succeeded by Punna Residence @ Suthep (Punna 3), Punna Residence @ CMU (Punna 4), Punna Residence 5 and Punna Residence Oasis, remains their most famous development to date not least on account of its enviable position in the heart of the city’s most fashionable and sought after locale.
The condominium is a 10-minute drive from CNX Airport and just steps away from Nimman’s chic bars, restaurants, cafés, art galleries and independent boutique shops.
The developer’s lifestyle shopping complex is within easy reach of the property, ’Punna Place @ Nimman’, an intimate collection of eateries, upmarket retail concerns, fitness centres, and beauty salons.
In no more than a 10 minute leisurely walk from Punna Residence @ Nimman is the futuristic-looking and well-trodden Maya Lifestyle Shopping Centre; home to more than a hundred shops and restaurants, the mall also anchors a world-class cinema, a library café and a workspace open 24/7, two food courts, a fitness studio, a branch of Chiang Mai’s very own Rimping Supermarket, a weekly Night Market and, on the sixth floor (‘Nimman Hill‘), a series of rooftop bars and eateries as well as an observation platform with sweeping vistas across the city.
The northern end of Nimmanhaemin Road intersects with both the multi-lane Super Highway and one of the city’s major arteries, Huay Kaew Road, with ready access to the principal campus of Chiang Mai University (CMU) with its abundance of budget-friendly food courts, coffee shops, bakeries and the picturesque Ang Kaew lake.
With the safety and wellbeing of its residents paramount, a team of security guards oversee the barrier entrance to the property and patrol the premises round-the-clock, supplemented by CCTV cameras which monitor all common areas both indoors and out with admittance to the interior of the main buildings via biometric fingerprint scan; for added peace of mind, the juristic staff are available every day of the week.
Covered bays provide ample on-site private parking at street level or the underground lot. Along with double lifts (elevators), each of the two condo buildings incorporates a bright and airy lobby with an arrangement of intelligent cosy sofas.
Some units are outfitted with a washing machine or, alternately, the adjoining ’Punna Place @ Nimman’ plaza hosts Em’s Laundry, a serviced wash shop and trusted name among foreigners and Thai folk alike. Despite the absence of shared WiFi throughout Punna Residence @ Nimman, residents can easily organise the installation of high-speed home broadband independently through any of the city’s various Internet Service Providers.
Perfect Homes offers condos for rent & condos for sale!
Occupying more than two rai (roughly a third of a hectare) of prime land just off the Nimmanhaemin strip with the prominent Thanon Thong Chai mountain range in direct view to the west, Punna Residence @ Nimman’s pair of adjacent 8-storey residential buildings (commonly referred to as Punna 1 and Punna 2) are set amidst pleasant and diligently tended gardened grounds. On the eastern edge of the property and dubbed “a masterpiece of pool design”, exists a good-sized and attractive palm-lined outdoor saltwater swimming pool –a rare find in Chiang Mai condos- and a surrounding sun deck complete with reclining loungers and sauna rooms.
In addition to no less than two modestly proportioned but well-equipped gyms, Punna Residence @ Nimman also boasts a fully serviced business centre with a handful or so of offices for sale or rent.
In honouring their architectural concept, the developer has focussed less on building tall and more on the amount of habitable space given to each of its 158 air-conditioned, furnished residential units. Accommodating studios as well as 1, 2 and, on occasion, 3 or 4 bedroom units, even the very smallest studio unit at Punna Residence @ Nimman is presented with a useable area of 45 sq m (so a good 14 sq m larger than the average-sized studio in Chiang Mai). In contrast, the most voluminous –and quite possibly the largest of its kind in the entire city- offers a truly impressive 250 or more sq m living environment. Over the years, many of the original units have been revamped as modern-contemporarily styled, luxuriously appointed and homely condos with the extent and specification of fittings and fixtures, complementing electrical appliances and homewares as well as the decorative flair determined by the inclinations of the individual owner.
Reflective of the neighbourhood’s international cross-section of visitors and ex-pats, the inhabitants of Punna Residence @ Nimman are largely foreigners (westerners and East Asian nationalities in particular), with only a relatively minor percentage of Thai residents.
