DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Together with its best-selling predecessor condos, My Hip and My Hip 2, The Treasure By my Hip is the handiwork of local property outfit, the Home Development Group. Originally unveiled back in the summer of 2014, The Treasure represents their biggest, boldest and most impressive real estate statement to date.
With each of The Treasure’s condominiums aptly named after a different precious gemstone, phase 1’s buildings A (yellow sapphire) and B (chrysoberyl)were officially habitable from August 2016. Phase 2’s buildings C (garnet) and D (emerald) are currently part-way through construction, but expected to be completed by May 2018.
The standout project showcases intricately blueprinted and assembled modern architecture with an underlying anti-seismic structure. Befitting the developer’s core concept of crafting an enduring “Golden Habitat” for future generations to cherish, The Treasure condo affords contemporary, deluxe living unbeatably situated amongst the city’s up-and-coming new business district.
Rising low but unmissably in the heart of the Chiang Mai Business Park, The Treasure sits along a dead-end soi [sidestreet] virtually undisturbed by vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Though it feels sublimely tucked away, the condo lies within minutes reach of each of the Chiang Mai to Doi Saket, Chiang Mai to Lampang and Somphot Chiang Mai 700 Pi Roads. In light of The Treasure’s immediacy to the multi-lane Super Highway, residents gain from having rapid passage to arguably the city’s number-one medical hub, Bangkok International Hospital and, onward, to the epic cash and carry warehouse, Siam Makro.
More reminiscent of an urban village, the CBP itself plays host not just to The Treasure but also, within striding distance of the condo, a community of commercial, recreational and retail setups. Besides 7-Eleven convenience stores, bank branches, dental clinics, fitness studios, late-night pharmacies, serviced laundries and dry cleaners, there’s cafés galore plus a stack of pan-Asian eateries. Not forgetting the IKEA-like homewares and furniture concern, Index Living Mall and, right next door, the largest and most cost-conscious hypermarket in all Chiang Mai, Big C Extra; laying claim to a prodigious pick of groceries, household supplies, personal care products, clothing and footwear, electrical gear on top of bill payment services and a respectable food court.
For those seeking the ultimate retail fix, the most sizeable shopping complex in the Northern Thai region, CentralFestival, can be walked from The Treasure in under 20 minutes. Spread across half a dozen levels, the megamall’s home to no fewer than 300 shops and restaurants as well as perhaps the finest supermarket this side of the nation’s capital, Central Food Hall. To say nothing of housing a world-class multi-screen cinema [movie theatre], ice-skating rink and, most suitable for residents lacking their own transport, providing complimentary minivans and songthaew which shuttle every day to spots throughout the hip Nimman neighbourhood, the timeless ‘Old City’, Chiang Mai Airport and the famous Night Bazaar.
To venture elsewhere within town or further afield for that matter, Chiang Mai’s main ‘Arcade’ bus station is just a quarter of an hour on foot from the condo. There, residents have ready access to a fleet of licensed cabs, motorcycle taxis, municipal minibuses, red songthaew and tuk tuk for travel city-wide and long-distance single- and double-deckers for journeys to an array of places in Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the Central provinces, Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket and even as far as Luang Prabang in neighbouring Laos.
For now, The Treasure only features uniformed guards on the job 24/7 at the dual-barriered way in/out between condo buildings A and B; once finished, a second security post between condo buildings C and D will also be in effect. To bolster resident safety and welfare, mounted CCTV cameras watch over all common areas with entry into the respective buildings via personal-issue electronic keycard. What’s more, juristic personnel are on hand between the hours of 8AM and 6PM Monday to Friday, and from 8AM to 5PM during weekend days.
Also on tap inside each building’s humbly proportioned and specified communal lobby is free-to-use shared WiFi; for a quicker and private internet connection, on the other hand, occupants of The Treasure have the option of self-funding in-room home broadband from either of 3BB or Sinet. Nearly all of the ground floor is given over to undercover parking supplemented with unsheltered off-street reserved bays directly in front of the premises; in total, the project supports a car parking quota approaching 70% of the overall residential capacity so condo residents are unlikely to ever want for a space to deposit their vehicle.
Taking whichever of the stairs or either of the two passenger lifts [elevators] up a floor, each condo building enjoys its very own 22m long open-air saltwater swimming pool with fringing lounge deck. Just off of which, a modestly sized but well-equipped gym and, imported from Japan, hinoki wood sauna.
ROOM TYPES, LAYOUT & SPECIFICATION
With The Treasure’s four 8-storey condo buildings linearly arranged from west to east, north-facing rooms command sensational views overlooking the adjacent lake and the forested slopes of the Thanon Thong Chai mountains in the background. All told, the project will consist of 497 residential units and come in an admirably comprehensive choice of types, layouts and decorative themes; 1 bed, 1 bath units measure 34.12 to 52.15 sq m with 2 bed, 2 bath units weighing in at 53.12 to 80.39 sq m of useable space.
Offered on an entirely furnished and air-conditioned basis, units boast a fitted washing machine on the one or more attached private balconies in addition to starring other leading brand name household appliances. Several units are configured as fully open-plan but most are presented as combined living/dining room with separate designer kitchen. Interiors are richly yet stylishly and welcomingly appointed using a superior grade of materials.
