The FYI Center is finally open for business and hoping to inspire a new generation of workers by providing a place that encourages creativity. The entire project was designed to create a working environment that allows for businesses to be more creative and encourages modern ideas to take shape.
Withawat Koottatep, executive vice president of commercial development at Golden Land Property Development, explained that the FYI Center was planned with the goal of being an “inspirational workplace”, where an office does not have to be rectangular. The entire complex features a number of modern facilities while green space surrounds the building. These were incorporated into the design in an attempt to provide the work/life balance that future tenants seek.
“Since the project is located near Khlong Toey Port, which is a major port for Bangkok, the design of the building is inspired by containers, as you can see from the entrance and the elevators, which look like they are built from actual containers. At the front of the building is a big brass sculpture,” Withawat stated. “The sculpture not only attracts the attention of passers-by, but also reflects FYI Center’s concept as a place that truly sparks ideas for the new generation.”
The project is located at the Ratchadapisek Road/Rama IV Road intersection and is set on a nine-rai plot of land that features three buildings. There are two 12-story office towers along with the 14-story Modena Hotel by Fraser Bangkok which has over 200 rooms.
Golden Land proclaimed that 70 percent of the project is already occupied by tenants who come from a wide range of industries. Convenience stores, restaurants and shops can also be found on-site and these are expected to begin operations in July. The developer believes the FYI Center will be 100 percent occupied by the end of this year.
