Bangkok (Thailand) – November 27, 2017 (travelindex.com) – Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB) is announcing its arrival in the super-luxury mixed-use market as a new city landmark by staging the grand event Beautiful Bangkok by Magnolias at Ratchaprasong, in line with the government’s tourism goals. With Thailand’s first 3D projection mapping on a 60-story building, Magnolias aims to give Thais and visitors a new experience, enhancing Bangkok’s global image.
Mr. Visit Malaisirirat, CEO of Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC), one of Thailand’s leading property developers, said super-luxury mixed-use projects have been trending throughout the year, putting the market clearly in the spotlight. The four essential factors for its success are location, design, value, and service. A prime location that is also convenient creates greater value. Outstanding design enables the property to stand out and encapsulate buyers’ identity. Economic value makes the project worth investing in. Comprehensive services fully meet clients’ needs, covering all areas from condominiums to the hotel and facilities.
“Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB) is a super-luxury mixed-use project proceeding under MQDC. It is located in a landmark area at the heart of Bangkok, Ratchaprasong, known as the city’s economic center with rapid growth in several commercial and residential projects. We intend to develop this project prioritizing design and the selection of high-quality materials, which is apparent through the building’s iconic shape, innovatively constructed with highly sophisticated technology that meets our commitment to deliver the very best to our clients.
“In addition to offering opulent suites, we are in alliance with Hilton’s renowned 5-star hotel brand Waldorf Astoria, which is another source of pride for us as Waldorf Astoria Bangkok will be the first of the brand’s hotels in Southeast Asia. To further guarantee the project’s success, MRB received three prestigious awards from theThailand Property Awards in 2014 including Best Architectural Design, Best Interior Design, and Highly Recommend – Best Luxury Condo Development (Bangkok).”
Regarding the project’s progress, Ms. Peachpattha Pakakan, Vice President of Marketing and Sales Projects for Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB), said:“We have already sold 80% of the total of 316 units. Our clients are about 50% Thai and 50% foreign, mainly from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. The driving factors for our satisfying sales growth are MRB’s location at one of Thailand’s top destinations and its being a mixed-use development, enabling it to meet our residents’ every need, along with the fully equipped facilities. In the coming year, the units that we plan to sell are two-bedroom units sized 72-106 sq m with a starting price of about THB20 million/unit or THB 280,000/sq m. For penthouses, we have eight and have now sold four. We expect to complete the whole project within Q2/2018 and our new sales gallery on site will officially open on 1 December 2017”
To elevate the Ratchaprasong district’s global appeal, Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB) has joined Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA) to plan development and conservation while promoting Ratchaprasong Square as a center of economic activity.
Mr. Visit Malaisirirat said: “We are very pleased to be a member of the Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA) as the area is the country’s key business district and also globally well-known as Thailand’s most remarkable luxurious lifestyle center. Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC) believes that our property project, Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard, once we are allied with the RSTA, will complete the magnificent scenery of the Ratchaprasong-Ratchadamri district.

As well, the project enhances the potential of the Ratchaprasong-Ratchadamri area to become one of the global key business districts.

Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard (MRB) is a super-luxury mixed-use development worth over THB11 billion built on the last piece of prime land on Ratchadamri Road. The developer of the project is Magnolia Finest Corp., Ltd., under Magnolia Quality Development Corp., Ltd. (MQDC).
The 60-story high-rise development is on 9,600 sq m (6 rai) of prime land with 316 residences on floors 17–54, with 88 one-bedroom suites (48–60 m2), 220 two-bedroom suites (72–106 m2), 6 duplex penthouse (250-360 m2) and 2 penthouses (290–300 m2).
The outstanding exterior’s exceptional design is inspired by magnolia petals, whose beauty packs unyielding strength within. The delicate curves and lines spiral magnificently down to the base evoking a flower blossom.
To enhance value and sophistication, the most innovative technology was used to create the building’s perfect curves and its iconic sunshade or façade. The façade not only protects the interior from heat but also embellishes the already stunning building, visible from afar as if mirrors were delicately aligned and twisted into an embrace with the main construction, a sight even more exquisite when sparkling in the Bangkok sun.
Applying concepts from Thai architecture suited to the country’s tropical climate, the building’s design saves energy through taking into consideration the direction of sunlight and placing shade appropriately.
The meticulous interior design is in a modern classic style, simple yet luxuriously elegant, inspired by the English Townhouse concept, featuring the modesty of soft soothing beige, white, and gray palettes. Crystal floor lamps pay tribute to the sweet yet sassy spirit of a young woman with unique individuality, while the elegant modern style brings in smart, modern, and mysterious characteristics with the play of light and dark as well as the furniture’s simple patterns with hidden intriguing details in materials ranging from stainless steel to glass.
Kitchens are furnished with world famous luxury kitchen brand Bulthaup, with Franke sinks and top-quality Siemens kitchenware. Bathrooms are equipped with leading brands including Dornbracht taps, Hansgrohe sanitary ware, exclusively designed for the project, and Käsch bathtubs.
Complete service is assured alongside several amenities and facilities including Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard Lounge Club exclusive to Private Residents Club members, valet parking, curved garden view library, fitness facilities, jogging tracks along the sloping garden, swimming pools with a children’s pool and Jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna as well as 24-hour security.
