It’s said first impressions count and, in this respect, The Siri’s striking and distinctive seven-storey facade certainly lives up to its Thai name of ‘glorious’ or ‘splendour’ without being overly ostentatious. Representing the flagship condominium from local real estate developer KGP, The Siri proudly showcases “Modern Lanna [Northern Thai] Style” architectural design throughout but without sacrificing function over form. Although completed over two years ago, The Siri remains one of the most immaculately-kept and well-managed condominiums in Chiang Mai.
For those with ambitions to live close to -but not in the thick of- the action, The Siri occupies a perfect position tucked away down a quiet lane (soi) off Siri Mangkalajarn Road yet within easy and short walking distance of the fashionable Nimman neighbourhood as well as one of the city’s principal thoroughfares, Huay Kaew Road. With its wealth of upscale bars, restaurants, cafes and boutique retail outlets, central Nimman can be reached in under 10 minutes on foot as can Punspace Nimman, Chiang Mai’s premiere co-working space, and Kad Suan Kaew, one of the city’s most popular shopping centres; slightly further afield (but still less than a kilometre from the property) lies the iconic Maya Lifestyle mall and, in the opposite direction, the historic ‘Old City’ of Chiang Mai.
Besides enjoying complete peace of mind by virtue of round-the-clock security guards, video surveillance in all common areas and keycard-controlled access to the property, The Siri boasts additional –and complimentary- on-site amenities such as separate parking spaces for cars, motorcycles and bicycles, a fitness centre and sauna, an outdoor freshwater pool with sun deck set amid secluded and landscaped surroundings, free WiFi in communal areas and private, high-speed fibre-optic broadband internet in-room (supplementary monthly charge applicable). As well as a juristic office staffed six days a week, residents can take the elevator to the rooftop ‘Sky Garden’ on the eighth floor from where they can behold a completely unobstructed panoramic vista of the nearby Thanon Thong Chai mountain range (dominated by the local peaks of Doi Suthep and Doi Pui, and over which the sun sets) together with far-reaching views across the city in three cardinal directions.
Ranging in size from 36 to 52 sq m, all 59 units in The Siri come fully furnished and attractively appointed with contemporary fittings and fixtures, fully air-conditioned and with a private balcony. Interior space is arranged into a single bedroom with king-sized bed, comfortable mattress, spacious wardrobe and study desk; the separate bathroom features a walk-in glass-panelled shower cubicle with a chrome rainforest shower head and ceramic basin with hot water supply; the open-plan living/dining area benefits from abundant natural light courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling windows and incorporates a two- or three-seat sofa, 32” flat-screen LCD TV, dining table and chairs along with a western style equipped kitchen comprising a mid-sized fridge/freezer, integrated electric double hob and extractor hood, stainless steel sink with cold water supply, ample storage cupboards and, for added convenience, your very own washing machine.
Demographically, The Siri is home mostly to foreign professionals in Chiang Mai for the medium- to long-term although a small number of units within the building serve as holiday lets for short stays. Indeed The Siri is reportedly one of the very few condominiums in Chiang Mai that has already achieved the legal quota of no more than 49% of its units being foreign-owned; despite the occasional sales unit appearing on the market, the majority of available units at The Siri exist only to rent.
