Recommended Condos for US Embassy Workers in BANGKOK
Bangkok, being Thailand’s capital, is home to several embassies of different countries. Among these is the U.S. Embassy which has been in Bangkok for over 200 years. Located at 120 – 122 Soi Witthayu/Wireless Road, the embassy is currently expanding through the construction of its annex expected to be completed by 2025. As a result, the increase in staff would lead to an increase in demand for luxury accommodations close to the embassy. We shall, in this post, therefore, consider the top 4 closest and most convenient luxury condominiums perfect and preferred by Bangkok U.S. Embassy workers in 2022.
1. Millennium Residence: First on the list is the Millennium Residence. Meticulously designed to offer luxury and leisure, Millennium Residence is one of the top favorite condos of US Embassy workers. With four 51 floors of skyscrapers standing between 192 and 199 meters tall, there are 604 opulent condo units of various room layouts to choose from. As it is close to the US Embassy, it is also close to Asoke BTS with a free shuttle service to the BTS station.
2. 185 Rajadamri: Built on the former location of the Cambodian Embassy, 185 Rajadamri is indeed a spectacular condominium that offers a panoramic view of Bangkok while being suitably located not too far from the U.S. Embassy. What makes this condominium particularly suited for U.S. Embassy workers is not just its proximity to the embassy but also the incorporation of traditional Thai and latest Western architectural designs. It’s also located only 10 minutes away from one of the most popular parks in Bangkok, Lumpini Park.
3. Athenee Residence: Developed by TCC Capital land, Athenee Residence is a world-class 41 stories condominium that is just a few minutes leisure walk to the U.S and British Embassy. It is one of the closest condos to the Embassy as it is perfectly located very close to Wireless Road (Soi Witthayu) where the U.S. Embassy is located. This condominium has 2 to 4 bedrooms units for varying needs. British Embassy workers also reside there. One of the reasons this building is so popular is because it’s quite kid-friendly, with a large indoor playroom and sand area for kids to play at.
4. The Met: The Met is the perfect choice for every U.S. Embassy worker as it is close to the American Embassy and other embassies. This is because The Met is a haven for workers of several embassies as it is surrounded by a host of other embassies, not just the U.S Embassy alone. Among these are the embassies of Belgium, Singapore, Australia, Morocco, Oman, etc. Units here range from 2 bed, 3 bed to 4 bedroom units.
When inspecting any condo unit within any of these high-rise skyscrapers, please be wary of the following things when selecting a place of your choice: balcony height, doors, and locks that may need to be changed, electrical installations, wiring and plugs which may probably need changing. Ensure that your landlord must be ready and willing to pay for upgrades and repairs which you require before making payment.
