Pearl Bangkok is a 25-storey office building located next to Ari BTS Station. There will be three underground floors and the structure has a height of 150 meter. This is a 3 billion baht project by Pruksa Real Estate. Pruksa will be headquartered in the building. The project is owned by TCT Co Ltd, a company owned by Thongma Vijitphongpun. The building has an oval shape, this definitely is an unusual architectural design. An unusual building but not a unique one, perhaps the architect was inspired slightly by The Gherkin in London?
There is no doubt the developer wanted an iconic building. Only the future will tell if they are able to succeed with that goal. Will Pearl Bangkok be as famous as The Gherkin?
• Main Contractor: RTH Construction Co.,LTD.
