“AIA Thailand has anticipated the potential business development and significant growth in the east of Bangkok area in the future from being Bangkok’s new CBD. Numerous infrastructures in transportation like Bangkok Transit System (BTS) Green Line Extension, Airport Link, Mass Railway Transit (MRT) Yellow Line (Lat Prao-Samrong) and the location provides connection to many major roads such as Bangna-Trad road, Sukhumvit, Sri Nakarin, On Nut-Lat Krabang, Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Chalerm Maha Nakorn Expressway, Motorway, Kanchanaphisek Outer Ring Road. Furthermore, it can also connect to roads leading to provinces in the East of the Thailand. Many real estate development companies have continually expressed their interests to invest in numerous residential projects such as housing estate, townhome, condominium etc. and thus turning Bangna zone into the premium grade residential area as the result. We believe that “AIA East Gateway” will undoubtedly be the first premium grade A office in Bangna zone for future’s business expansion not just for our business group but also leading investors both local and international.” Mr. Alger Fung concluded.
