Dean & Deluca is on the ground floor of the – still covered up – Mahanakhon Cube, which will be between the main tower and Chong Nonsi, the Bangkok Skytrain station that connects you to the Silom line.
You can spot the cube and get a sense of its scale in the above rendering, which also shows how far the main tower – which will house the 150-room Bangkok Edition and 194 Ritz-Carlton Residences – has to come before it tops out at 77 stories.
This is what the tower looks like today, still in the early stages of construction at 15 stories or so of bare concrete.
The finished three-story section you see above is not attached to the main tower as far as can we tell, and we’re not sure it is actually part of the final scheme – it wouldn’t surprise us if it were a temporary marketing suite / office space that will disappear later on.
We’ll keep you posted as Mahanakhon continues to rise and details on the Bangkok Edition come out. If you want to get a sense of what will be inside the Ritz-Carlton Residences, go here for lots of renderings of what will be Thailand’s most expensive residential tower.
