Enjoying a fantastic location on the cusp of prime Sukhumvit, the Ekkamai neighborhood is one of the most happening places to live in Bangkok and the new Siamese Exclusive 42 (S42) project takes upscale living here to a whole new level. Home to some of the city’s best restaurants and bars, Ekkamai has it all – education, medical facilities, entertainment, shopping and easy access to both Bangkok’s business areas and many tourist destinations out of Bangkok. Here’s why this trendy area is so popular with Bangkok’s thriving expat community and a favorite with the city’s Japanese population and the Thai upper class.
Ekkamai is prime Sukhumvit real estate that’s very conveniently located right in the middle of many top localities – the vibrant Thong Lor, Phrom Phong and Asoke are the next stops on the BTS line, while the bustling Phra Khanong, On nut, Udomsuk areas are easily accessible in the other direction. Ekkamai itself has charming shopping squares, classy residences and numerous backstreets with real character, some of them leading to the adjacent Thong Lor area. Many delightful cafes, chic pubs, elegant spas and flashy nightclubs can be found lining the main thoroughfare of Sukhumvit 63.
Almost the first thing you’ll see when you reach Ekkamai BTS is the Japanese influenced Gateway mall that has eight floors of fashion outlets, restaurants, health and beauty products, edutainment and even a Snow Town. The mall is the site of many pop-up markets over the weekend and often plays host to the popular Bangkok’s Farmer’s market.
Major Sukhumvit-Ekkamai, is another mall that’s just a short walk away along the BTS skywalk. The thriving complex has many facilities including a cinema, fitness club, bowling, and an ice-skating ring. A Krungdep Cooperative store right next to the theatre complex offers bargain prices on food and household items. Adding a touch of local flavor, Banrie coffee located opposite Major Sukhumvit-Ekkamai double’s as Ekkamai’s beer garden in the evenings with guests enjoying live music on its outdoor patio.
Ekkamai also has a lot to offer in terms of education. The National Science Center for Education is a short walk away from the BTS and it holds both a planetarium and a small museum. Many top class international schools are all within a range of 600 meters and there’s a new school coming up near the Siamese Exclusive 42 apartment complex. The Bangkok Bus Terminal close to Ekkamai’s main intersection offers easy and comparatively cheaper transport out of Bangkok to Trat, Pattaya and other popular destinations.
Siamese Exclusive 42 (S42)
The Siamese Exclusive 42 (S42) project that’s scheduled for completion in June 2020, will be a hallmark apartment complex located on Ekkamai Soi 42. What makes this condominium truly distinctive is its unique Japanese design featuring a modern take on the Shinden-Zukuri architecture that gained fame during the Heian period of Japanese history. Buildings constructed during this era are marked by a central south-facing building with multiple covered corridors and bridges leading to secondary buildings. The S-42 project has many elements of this classic design which are well integrated with excellent double facilities (2 fitness centers, 2 swimming pools and 2 parking lots).
Developed by Siamese Asset, the 31 storey S42 building has 449 residential units ranging from 1-bedroom apartments to 4-bedroom penthouses. 1-bedroom apartments range from 33 sqm to 37 sqm and 2 bedroom apartments range from 47 sqm to 53.6 sqm; lower floors have bigger 2-bedroom apartments ranging from 56.8 sqm and 66.5 sqm. Units here offer wide unobstructed city and river views.
