‘ICONSIAM’ is the largest commercial property development ever to open in Thailand
ICONSIAM, the spectacular US$1.6 billion landmark development being constructed in Bangkok by the Chao Phraya River, today, confirmed that it will open on Friday 9th November, this year. The much anticipated 750,000 square metre mega-destination is spending more than US$30 million for a launch that promises to bring immediate global attention to Bangkok and Thailand with a glittering opening programme which includes 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.
“ICONSIAM is the longest multi-media water feature in Southeast Asia, artworks and architectural masterpieces by more than 100 eminent Thai and international artists placed throughout the destination, 98 first-time-in-Thailand store concepts and brands from around the world, Thailand’s first flagship Apple Store, Siam Takashimaya, Japan’s venerable department store that will open its first store in Thailand, an unprecedented line-up of 14 globally iconic flagship stores, and SookSiam.
Sooksiam is a feature spread over four acres of space inside ICONSIAM that presents the products and cultural heritage of the four, main geographic regions of Thailand, bringing together their arts, handicrafts, performing arts, food, and beverages, in a single, exciting destination. Its authenticity aims to make it a window into every corner of Thailand.
Other features opening in mid-2019 are TRUE ICON HALL – Thailand’s technologically most advanced entertainment and conference venue with state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and connectivity systems and able to seat up to 3,000 people – and the River Museum Bangkok, which will be Thailand’s first world-class museum, designed by globally renown museum experts, and able to host outstanding touring masterwork exhibitions that, previously, could not visit Thailand.
ICONSIAM is being developed by Siam Piwat, the owner and operator of prestige retail developments such as Siam Center, Siam Paragon, and Siam Discovery; Magnolia Quality Development Corporation (MQDC), the owner and developer of luxury quality residential and mixed-use projects; and multi-national conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Group.
