Bangkok’s new MahaNakhon tower, now the tallest skyscraper in Thailand, officially opened late last month in Bangkok’s central business district. The mixed-use, 135,000-sqm development covers 77 storeys and is set to feature two offerings from The Ritz-Carlton – the boutique Bangkok Edition Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton Residences.

Set to open in 2017, the new Edition Hotel follows existing properties in London, Miami and New York, and will include 155 rooms situated across the lower floors of the building. Meanwhile the Residences will comprise 209 luxury homes located on the upper floors.

MahaNakhon also contains a public plaza, retail space and observation deck. The 1,000-sqm public plaza, MahaNakhon Square, is set-up to be able to host art exhibitions, concerts and performances. MahaNakhon Observation Deck features a cantilevered floor and provides 360-degree scenic views over the city some 314 metres up.

At the base of the tower is MahaNakhon Cube, a seven-floor retail space that connects to BTS Chongnonsi Station. Along with retail, the Cube will also offer F&B options including L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Vogue Lounge.

MahaNakhon, also known as the “Pixel Tower” for the numerous cubes that make up its design, is located in Bangkok’s CBD between Sathorn and Silom Road.
