The new development near Phuket International Airport: 500 condos, plus

Project Near Phuket Airport to Offer 500 Condos, Shopping Mall, Resort, Office Buildings

Friday, November 28, 2014
PHUKET: A huge new project, The Terminal Phuket, is to offer more than 500 condos near Phuket International Airport then expand to villas, a shopping mall and office buildings in successive phases.

Expat residents who are frequent travellers to Bangkok or international cities are likely to find the project appealing.

''The Terminal Phuket will be across 72 rai,'' said sales manager Wannee Seaton today. ''Initially there will be 517 condominiums in several buildings, with a central pool, at prices varying between 2.2 million baht and 5.2 million baht.''

The site is at the t-intersection where most traffic swings from the newly-widened road leading from Thepkasattri Road towards Phuket International Airport.

''Proximity to the airport means that we expect 30 percent of our initial customers will have a job or be connected with the airport in some way,'' Khun Wannee said.

She added that the money for the development was coming from a combination of Chinese and Singaporean investors.

The condos would be followed in phase two by the resort with pool villas, then the shopping mall, then the office buildings.

A number of new condo and retail projects recently have opened up development north of the traditional holiday sports of Patong, Kata, Karon and Kamala. Nai Yang would be the nearest beach to The Terminal Phuket.

Anywhere in the world inhabitants living close to ( extending) airport protest again air- and noise pollution. Coming years Phuket airport will become bigger and bigger. Who wants to live in 'paradise' with a 'International' airport at doorstep? Funny thinking.

Having lived and worked right by this airport for 12 years, posters' concerns are unfounded.

The runway runs across the island, from west coast to east coast, with no villages under the runway, just open sea. So planes can take off and land at any time of day and night, without disturbing the nearby residents. This new project, which is located parallel to the runway (1.5km away), will not suffer at all from aircraft noise, yet is located only 1km from the airport and less from the nearby beach.

If I had the funds, I would be buying into it as a future investment...

I wonder how many years Phuket's nature has left before it's all concreted over.

There's no way I'd buy any property here; it's already over-price and the island is getting uglier by the day.

Town planning and environmental impacts are not on the Thai agenda now or ever.
