Country Group Development hosts topping-off ceremony
Country Group Development PCL (CGD), the Thailand-based international real estate developer, has come together with its partners to celebrate the completion of construction work on the Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River.
A topping off ceremony was held today on the rooftop of the spectacular 73-storey riverfront tower. This impressive collection of 355 branded luxury apartments marks the luxury residential component of the Chao Phraya Estate, the landmark USD 1 billion riverfront development in central Bangkok.
Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is designed to elevate waterfront living to new heights. Taking full advantage of its unrivalled waterfront position, all residences are designed as corner units with unobstructed panoramic views of Bangkok’s “River of Kings” and the glittering city skyline.
Senior executives from Country Group Development, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Beijing Construction Engineering Group (BCEG) and Ping An Bank attended the dramatic rooftop ceremony.
“Not only does this ceremony mark an essential milestone in the construction of Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River, but more importantly – it represents our commitment to ensuring the timely and successful project completion to the highest specification,” said Ben Taechaubol, Chief Executive Officer of CGD.
Rainer Stampfer, Four Seasons’ President of Hotel Operations – Asia Pacific, commented; “It’s truly thrilling to see the development of the world’s largest Four Seasons Private Residences come to life. Not only will residents enjoy the luxury of Bangkok’s most prestigious address, they will also benefit from the unsurpassed services and facilities provided by Four Seasons.”
Also attending Thursday’s topping out ceremony was Guo Mingxing, General Manager of Beijing Construction Engineering Group (BCEG), which was tasked with engineering this extensive waterfront development, and Ms. Pan Mei, Chief Financial Officer of the project’s financier, Ping An Bank.
“BCEG has successfully undertaken several significant projects around the world, but Chao Phraya Estate is one of our most ambitious and prestigious developments to date. We choose to work with strong partners and our joint-venture with Country Group Development is a fine example of two like-minded companies coming together to create something truly special,” Mr. Guo stated.
“We are extremely happy to have been part of this historic project,” commented Ping An Bank’s Ms. Pan Mei. “To see the timely milestone achievement of this development solidifies the successful partnership between PAB and CGD and reiterates our choice to pursue sustained and stable developments – which has always been the cornerstone to our success”.
