Strong domestic and foreign demand drives residential, commercial development worth Bt50 bn in Phuket.

Property companies are expanding their investment to develop more than Bt50-billion worth of residential and commercial projects in Phuket this year and next, on the back of strong demand from both Thais and foreigners.

According to a survey by The Nation early this week, a number of Bangkok and Phuket developers and investors have introduced new residential projects and commercial buildings in the province.

For example, Central Retail Corp is spending more than Bt20 billion to develop a major mixed-use project comprising commercial, retail, hotel and office buildings, plus a condominium, on 200 rai (32 hectares) of land.

Construction of the project, which will develop 630,000 square metres of usable space, starts this year and is expected to be completed within five to seven years.

Property firm Sansiri, meanwhile, has been expanding its investment in Phuket since 2011 by launching 17 condominium and detached-housing projects.

The projects comprise 5,549 units worth Bt13.85 billion, with 3,950 units valued at Bt8.81 billion having already been sold.

Charn Issara Development, which has long experience in the luxury-hotel segment in Phuket with its Sri Panwa property, plans to launch two new residential projects combining condominiums and detached housing projects worth Bt1.7 billion in the island-province. Construction is due to commence next year.

Tri Property launched two condominium projects, the Zcape and Zcape x2, in Phuket this year, both of which have already sold out. It has, therefore, introduced the Bt1-billion Zcape 3, this quarter. The project comprises 417 units at a starting price of Bt1.69 million apiece.

Laguna Resort and Hotel plans to develop a townhouse and condominium project, Laguna Park, on a 237-rai plot. With a combined 2,000 units worth Bt2 billion, the project will have four phases and construction will commence next year.

Amari Estate is introducing just 28 units in the Bt238-million Amari Residence Phuket, while Pruksa Real Estate has five townhouse projects and one detached-housing project with a combined 1,200 units worth more than Bt2 billion. Pruksa introduced the projects to the market in 2010.

According to research by CB Richard Ellis (Thailand), Phuket condominium projects launched in the first half of this year contained 824 units, of which 70.5 per cent have already been sold, while new villa projects comprised 128 units, of which 62.5 per cent have been sold.

Meanwhile, the island sees plans for two new shopping-centre projects – Central Festival Phuket and The Garden community mall – plus 1,032 hotel rooms with rates above Bt2,000 per night.

CB Richard Ellis’s research shows demand to purchase homes in Phuket is coming from both domestic and foreign buyers, with the latter – largely from Scandinavia, other parts of Europe and Singapore – mainly looking to buy a vacation property.

The most popular condominiums in Phuket fetch between Bt1.5 million and Bt5 million per unit, while townhouse prices are generally in the range of Bt3 million-Bt5 million and detached houses and villa-style homes average Bt5 million.
