Richest man in Thailand eyes building Bangkok’s tallest skyscraper
Thailand’s richest man wants to set another record.
Billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, via his recently listed property unit Asset World Corp, has his sights on building the nation’s tallest skyscraper.
Details are scant — no official height has been set and completion isn’t expected until 2025 — but the tower, at the centre of another $948 million project on the banks of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya river, is emblematic of Asset World’s aggressive growth strategy.
“It embodies what our company aims to do — set new trends and lift the benchmark,” said Asset World’s Chief Executive Officer and Charoen’s daughter, Wallapa Traisorat. The skyscraper will be a “new landmark” and draw more visitors to Thailand, she said.Preview (opens in a new tab)
