Central Pattana, Thailand's leading developer of retail-led mixed-use developments such as shopping centers, residential projects, office buildings and hotels nationwide, has underlined its leadership in Thailand's property sector and as a sustainable corporation by winning the 'Top 10 Developers Awards 2023', for its Central WestVille project, which is recognized as a semi-outdoor, low-carbon mall of the future. Central WestVille was built on the concept of blending nature with urbanization to become the 'First-Ever Nature-Harmonized Retail' project, which connects the living of people and their pets, and responds to all lifestyle needs by seamlessly combining eco-friendly trends. Mr. Christian Lowe, Executive Regional Director, and Miss Jutatham Jirathiwat, Head of Business Development, from Central Pattana Plc., represented the company in receiving an award from Miss Pimphattra Wichaikul, Minister of Industry, at the BCI ASIA AWARDS 2023. This prestigious award is given to property developers that play an influential role in advancing the construction industry, have invested in outstanding, high-quality and environmentally conscious developments and help spur the prosperity of the local economy, community and society.
Mr. Christian Low, Executive Regional Director at Central Pattana plc, said: "Central Pattana prioritizes building a better and sustainable future for everyone under the 'Imagining Better Futures for All' vision. We are committed to creating a landmark or a Center of Life that provides spaces that respond to all lifestyle needs and helps drive the economy, creates jobs and spurs community development. That's why we have built Central WestVille as a semi-outdoor, low-carbon mall, leveraging the idea of blending nature with urbanization to create the 'First-Ever Nature Harmonized Retail' project. Central WestVille will stand as a model shopping mall for the future, responding to the needs of people, pets and the planet, welcoming the global trends of mindfulness, health consciousness and sustainability. BCI ASIA's Top 10 Developers Awards 2023 are prestigious honors that are widely recognized by the architecture sector and global property developers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank BCI Asia for recognizing Central Pattana's commitment to developing projects that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also of high quality, structurally strong and safe, as well as energy-efficient and eco-friendly - in line with Central Pattana's business practice for sustainability."
Ms. Juthatham Chirathivat, Head of Business Development for Central Pattana plc, said: "Central WestVille was designed under the concept of 'Reimagining Harmony with Nature', which incorporates nature into the building's design to create a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere, with garden space and large trees inside the building. The fountain in the center of the building provides a cooling effect and helps reduce the temperature of the outdoor zone. Central WestVille also has a community and relaxation space for customers. Its exterior design features a facade and skylights inspired by 'tree canopy shading', which lets everyone experience what nature has to offer - sunlight, cool breezes, the sound of water and trees. All these features will offer a sensational experience of living for all. In addition, the main indoor area incorporates natural materials in the design, leveraging re-used materials."
Highlighted areas within the shopping center include the 20-meter-tall Waterfall Amphitheatre in the middle, which can be a meet-up spot for people in the Ratchapruek neighborhood; Triple Playgrounds, which respond to the needs of families - with playgrounds in three different locations, encouraging kids to learn and play to their hearts' content in a natural environment; the Sky Garden & Running Track responds to needs of health-conscious people, with a rooftop running-track built to comply with the competitive running track standard; and plenty of outdoor activities for families to enjoy together. The Pet Destination area is a pet-friendly landmark spanning more than 1,000 m2 and offering the biggest range of pet facilities in Central Pattana's history.
Central WestVille, the best semi-outdoor low-carbon mall on Ratchapruek Road, touting the concept of the 'West at its Best', is a reflection of Central Pattana's commitment to improving people's quality of life while caring for society and the environment. Central WestVille is set to officially open on 29 November 2023.
