Ashton Morph 38 VS Downtown 49: Battle of Pet-friendly Condos in Thonglor
Filled with diverse cultures and rich tourist attraction centers, Bangkok remains the number one most visited city in the whole world. This is because apart from the limitless tourist attraction this Thailand’s capital city has, the city and its people are very accommodating and hospitable towards humans, including expatriates. However, the same thing cannot be said with regard to pets. Bangkok, like most of Thailand, is not very accommodating towards pets and pet ownership. Consequently, a great number of housing projects especially in megacities such as Bangkok, do not have policies that cater to the needs and acceptance of pets. Among the very few Bangkok housing projects which are pet-friendly include the Ashton Morph condominium project located in Thong Lor and Downtown 49 condominium located in Ekkamai. Coincidentally, these two condos are among the top 5 most luxurious condominiums in Bangkok. Let’s start with everything there is to know about the pet-friendly Ashton Morph before proceeding to examine Downtown 49.
Ashton Morph is a luxury condominium project developed and completed in December 2012 by Ananda Development Public Company Limited. It comprises a single, elegant high-rise building that is perfectly situated in a convenient location. Comfortably situated in the busy business district of Thong Lor just between Sukhumvit 38 and Sukhumvit 39, it is thoughtfully located such that it provides easy access to public transportation while helping avoid the often depressing traffic that most times build clog Bangkok’s major roads. This high-rise ultra-modern condo consists of 199 residential condominium units all constructed in varying room sizes and varying room layouts. Available for sale are 1 bedroom and 2 bedrooms condo units. What makes this high-rise condo to be a much-coveted housing estate is not just its luxurious appeal, but also the convenience of its location such that it is located just 300 meters away from BTS Thong Lor (being a 10-minute walk to this Sky Train station) and MRT Sukhumvit which is just 2.9 kilometers away. It is fitted with high-class condominium facilities located on the topmost floor of the building.
Downtown 49 is an equally pet-friendly condominium housing project located in Ekkamai. It is located between Thong Lor – where Ashton Morph is built and Phrom Phong BTS/sky train. Unlike Ashton Morph, it is a complex of low-rise buildings all of which have a total of 135 units and offer studio to 3 bedroom units. It is surrounded by lots of shopping malls, schools, and hospitals.
