ICONSIAM, the spectacular US $1.6 billion landmark development constructed in Bangkok by the Chao Phraya River is now open.
The Icon Siam Shopping Mall tabbed the “Mother of All Malls” has two towers, 80,000 square metres of land, a convention hall, a condominium and much more – it is an enormous retail and dining experience that dominates several city blocks. There are around 500 shops, with 100 restaurants from more than 30 different countries. It also features a multimedia light show that is visible from several kilometres away.
The project is located on the bank of the Chao Phraya River and is home to the first Takashiyama Department Store in Bangkok. This incredible 50 billion THB project is the largest private investment in Bangkok to date, backed by the same tycoons behind Siam Discovery, Siam Center and Siam Paragon. The launch has resulted in global attention to Bangkok and Thailand with a glittering opening program with an array of shows, performances, global superstar concerts, and the largest flying drone display ever organised in Southeast Asia with more than 1,500 drones.
Mr. Visit Malaisirirat, Chief Executive Officer of MQDC, project developer, said, “ICONSIAM’s two luxury residential towers offer residents amazing views of the Chao Phraya River and are equipped with stateof- the-art technologies. The 70-floor ‘Magnolia Waterfront Residences’ has 379 exceptional residences, and the 52-floor, ‘The Residences at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok’ has 146 super-luxury homes that are the first ‘Mandarin Oriental’ branded residences in Southeast Asia.” ICONSIAM has been developed by Siam Piwat, the owner and operator of major retail developments such as Siam Center, Siam Paragon, and Siam Discovery in conjunction with Magnolia Quality Development Corporation and Charoen Pokphand Group.
