WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT AT KHLONG TOEI

Khlong Toei, Bangkok
Thailand
2010

This project is a study of development in the Khlong Toei Port area, the last large parcel of land in inner city Bangkok. When a significant flow of cargo traffic was diverted to Lamchabang Port, this area, with its long river frontage, was left vacant, offering Bangkok enormous potential for first-class development.


The Development Proposal consists of office buildings, hotel, retail, convention center, park, museum, and a port for tourism. The ratio of the building floor area to the land area is taken into consideration to control density and provide open spaces for the public.


Commercial buildings are arrayed as two street walls to blend with the low-rise shopping street. A Convention Center and mid-size theater facilitate social, cultural, and business activities.


The multipurpose plaza and the public park along the riverbank boasts panoramic views and responds to the city’s public effort to improve quality of life. A mid-size park in the center of the development provides a level privacy for the residents and visitors. Each residential apartment offers an open courtyard for recreation with a green belt around the residential zone.


The sports field in the former port area is to be improved to become a modern sports and recreation center, while the city library close to the river will be the center for information. The plan also includes the Bangkok Sky Park, inspired by boat sails and the river, to commemorate the rejuvenated area with a new landmark.
