From Megabangna to Megacity
A decade had passed in the blink of an eye and we continue to follow the plan of becoming a mixed-use project that offers so much more than just a normal shopping centre. The ‘Megacity’ we are building will make the best use out of almost 100-rai land (40 acres) we still have in our hands. The continual urban expansion has made Bangna and Bang Pli into relatively urbanized areas instead of the distanced suburbs they once were ten years ago with housing estate and condominium projects mushrooming. Not only that, the population residing in Eastern Bangkok area has high purchasing power while the commute in the eastern Bangkok is becoming more convenient with the imminent completion of BTS’s Yellow line. The future plan also includes the Light Rail, a new airport rail link connecting the Yellow Line to Suvarnabhumi Airport, which will run pass the front of our project. All these factors collectively complement Megacity project to become a space of incredible potential, packed with premium quality facilities with Megabangna as the centerpiece of the city.
The plan we have for Megacity is set into motion after the completion of the Mega FoodWalk zone. In late 2020, we opened the construction of an additional
parking building that can accommodate 2,000 vehicles. Later in 2021,
Mega Space1 Co., Ltd. was handing over the completed condominium project
A-Space Mega, the first condominium project in Megacity, while the second project planned to complete in 2023.
What has us particularly excited for this year is our new partner who will bring a large-scale Sport & Entertainment Complex from the United States, Topgolf Megacity, to Bangkok. This leading sports complex brand with over 70 branches in the United States alone will open its first branch in Southeast Asia in September of 2022. What’s special about Topgolf is it will offer not just a high-standard golfing centre, but a space for everyone who may not be a golf enthusiast to enjoy their state-of-the-art facilities, including brand new technologies such as the micro-shipped golf balls that will show a player the exact distance and precision of the ball. The project will also include a full-on entertainment spaces from a sports bar to restaurants, making this sport & entertainment complex a destination everyone can enjoy.
Our long-term Master Plan also includes our future collaborations with different brands and entrepreneurs to bring hotels of different scales and types to the project. The three to four hotels that will be situated inside Megacity will consist of a business hotel for business travelers, a five-starred hotel and a family hotel.
With Megacity being a massive mixed-use project on the expansive 400-rai land (158 acres), our intention is to create a city that is filled with a variety of projects for our customers to fully enjoy their time and experiences here. Our program is developed to response to every demand and lifestyle of our potential customers, and stay up to date to all their needs with a comprehensive range of products and services while still offering something unique and distinctive that is reflective of one’s individuality. This will be the place where one can enjoy a time on their own while still being able to spend a quality time with their family despite the hectic lifestyle they lead. This is the place where technologies are designed to deliver the best possible convenience while still being conscious about the environment. A significant part of our concept is to integrate green, natural spaces into the lifestyle of urban dwellers, who despite being surrounded by a concrete jungle, still long for a touch of nature. People’s lifestyles, and continually changing needs and demands will be a crucial part of the future developments of this project, all to make Magacity and Megabangna become a true everyday meeting place for all.
