Best condo buildings in central Pattaya


supergeil

Recommended Posts

Based on price it seems to be Northshore, wouldn’t call it central Pattaya though, and the listings I looked at did not look appealing to me.

 

The faith of Waterfront is still not completely sure, but going by the showroom, it looks like it could become a really nice place to live.

 

What other buildings are there?

 

I think to qualify as luxurious it must as an absolute minimum have spacious rooms, so nothing below 60-70 sq. m. can be called luxurious.

 
Other niceties: Double glazed windows, wooden floors, whisper quiet and concealed AC, full kitchen with built-in dishwasher, big fridge, stove with 4 rings (preferably induction), a bathroom that is a pleasure to use (your own little spa).
 
A good view would also be nice!

Hello,

 

Can we also add in here current prices and what's happening to pricing?

I want to collect a list of the best condos, pricing info would certainly be fine to add, but if you just want to tell us that it’s a buyer’s market and soon everything will be on sale, there are plenty of other threads for that.

 

Sadly though I think that this thread will be rather short-lived, because from everything I have seen, there just aren’t any truly luxurious condos in Pattaya.

Define 'truly luxurious condos'....? You mean like Trump Tower?

If yes, then there NO condos in Pattaya (in Thailand?) like that.

Needless to say, YOU have to define (give an example) of a luxury condo.

Luxurious? Not really.

You mentioned Northshore, which is probably the 'best' in Central Pattaya, otherwise I guess a couple of the developments at Wong Amat.

Was out for a walk in the Wongamat area last June and popped into 'The Cove,to hop the ball-phenomenal building,phenomenal rooms.

Google and drool but be prepared, they were asking 70,000 Baht for the month.Way way north of my budget but to be honest, I felt it a fair price for what you got.

Gigi, the girl who gave me the viewing, told me that they normally wouldn't consider a one month rental term(a year was the minimum apparently) but she would have let me have it for that month;low season,relatively new building and so on.

Left a massive impression but knowing what fun could be had in town for 70K Baht, I reluctantly let it go.

In terms of property porn , The Cove is a superstar.

As high end as it gets in Pats.

Indeed beautiful condos at 'beautiful' prices.

Here's a 'hot sale' at only 22,950,000. Reduced from 27.5M

http://www.fivestarvillasandcondos.com/Property/Condominium-for-sale-Pattaya-The-Cove-15700

And I saw another at 55M.

I wonder who the 'target market' is for them? Seems like if spending that much, you would consider OTHER cities than Pattaya.

I'd imagine it's aimed at company executives, for a decent sized company the asking prices at the Cove would be no problem.

 

Cheers

yes north shore would be the best well maintained the levies are high.

For me in something closer to my budget it's VT6 that gets my vote view proximity low maintenance fee and all you are asking for  .still many developer empty shells there you can deck out the way you want but all thai quota foreign quota for sale but all asking way over market price ATM

Ask a silly question and i'll leave a silly answer  

Would have been easier if you googled it yourself.    

Thanks spelling and grammar checkers for being a ?%6433%#E

Isn't funny how the empty skeleton of a building that stood there in the weather for all those years, turns out to be the most luxurious? Any of you old timers have a picture of that skeleton which is now Northshore? I can still see it in my mind, but would love to see a picture.

It's just my opinion.

Unfortunately no photos of the rusting 'hulk' (Northshore) but, I too, remember that well.

I also remember how SEVERAL commenters on another forum predicted Northshore would 'collapse' due to the rust, sea salt damage, so on.

BTW, condos initially sold (starting) around 4.5M-5Mbht. Now, same condo, 6.5M-7M.

I remember drinking in North Pattaya with a group of guys and one of them was a real estate developer in Florida on vacation. He told me to never buy in that building once it's completed due to the same issues you mentioned. I've never been inside of the building, but I know if I did those issues would always be in the back of mind. I wonder if the people that live there have any idea about the history of the structure? 

It's just my opinion.

Yep, that's it. Thanks for posting. I was shocked when they started building over the existing structure, I just assumed it would be torn down and a new building in it's place after so many years in the weather and salt air.

It's just my opinion.

So long as there is sufficient drainage to prevent stagnation external rust can remain static and superficial.  However, in a windy salty area right next to the sea it's hard to imagine no permanent harm has been done.  in another country any serious damage might have been detected and removed to comply with government requirements, but in Thailand I wouldn't expect safety or quality control to be high on anyone's list of imperatives.  Build, fail, abandon, ignore, resume, sell, done.  Life is cheap in the land of smirks and chuckles.

We can only 'speculate' as to the physical quality of the building's condition and infrastructure. I've not been in there but residents there that I've spoken to had only minor complaints.

South facing condo, for example, were 'very hot' in the afternoon. Another person mentioned 'noise' from Beach Road.

Regardless they're are 'in-demand' with SELLING prices up to '140mBht' per another thread on PA. It was a full floor, penthouse, two stories, 960sqm.

LOL, 140 million baht, that's about $4.2 million US dollars.  I could think of a lot better uses of that money, haha!

But are they being sold ? Outside NS is a sales office having 14 units (!) for sale on the display outside.
