FPT has envisaged Silom Edge, also its first redevelopment project, to be Bangkok's first sandbox community. Taking on the theme "BE DIFFERENT. BE CONNECTED", it will offer a platform for start-ups, digital entrepreneurs and technology firms to engage, learn and exchange insights.
With this appealing concept and an attractive price considering its prime location with BTS and MRT links, Silom Edge has to date achieved a pre-commitment leasing of over 60% of its office space after having recently secured an office lease agreement with a new unicorn start-up in the food-biotech sector, with continued healthy leasing interest from leading companies and start-ups from the technology, digital marketing and proptech sectors. This followed last year's successful launch of JustCo x Silom Edge co-working space that offers the tenant community the flexibility of workspaces with its Core & Flex office space.
At present, over 30% of retail space at Silom Edge has been rented out to famous brands and services, while FPT continues to curate suitable brands to cater to the lifestyles of the New Gen. The sandbox community concept will be extended to Silom Edge's retail space, with an "All Inclusive Services" concept that enables longer operating hours. Two out of four floors of retail zone will open from 11am to midnight, while a dedicated special zone for restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacies and vending machines selling quality products will open for 24 hours.
Mr. Thanapol Sirithanachai, Country CEO of Frasers Property (Thailand) Public Company Limited, said: "We are confident that our mixed-use development Silom Edge in the heart of Bangkok's CBD will be well received upon launch this September, by which time the Covid-19 situation will improve with support from the public, private, and civil sectors that have kept the pandemic in check, enabling the move towards the normal lifestyle and generating continued interest in office and retail space in prime locations."
"The opening of Silom Edge sandbox community will be a turning point in propelling mixed-use facilities towards the future, providing cutting-edge business space in a strategic location while offering flexible and inclusive services that meet the needs of both tenants and customers, catering to the work and lifestyle aspirations of the New Gen. We are ready to support businesses of all sizes ranging from start-up entrepreneurs to MNCs within the project to grow and succeed," Mr. Thanapol added.
Comprising seven floors of office and retail space that spans over 22,000 square meters, Silom Edge will offer a vibrant work and recreational environment. Interested persons can contact Tel. 02 483 0046 (office rental space) and 094 892 9492 (retail rental space)
