City Overview

Bangkok dominates Thailand’s retail property market and contains a number of international class shopping centres. The department store/shopping centre developer market is an oligopoly with two developers Central and the Mall group, who are both retail operators and developers, dominating the market. The three leading shopping centres are Siam Paragon, which is located at the heart of Bangkok’s central business district; the Em district (Emporium and EmQuatier) is located in Sukhumvit, a high-end residential location occupied by locals and expatriates; and Central World, a large-scale shopping mall in the central business district. All these centres have a direct covered link to the mass transit system BTS SkyTrain.  Siam Future Development is another big player who specialises in neighbourhood shopping centre. Siam Future formed a joint venture with Ikano the privately held development arm of IKEA to develop Mega Bangna anchored by Thailand’s first IKEA store. Other major retail developments included Platinum Fashion Mall, a wholesale shopping centre with around 2,000 kiosks, as well as Asiatique the Riverfront, a unique concept for Bangkok as it is a refurbished old warehouse buildings converted to kiosk space targeting both local residents and tourists.
