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.
