Due to planning laws, new high-rise buildings are a rarity in Chiang Mai - especially when they are right in the very heart of the city. Comprising two buildings, each standing 17-floors high and located in an absolutely prime city centre location next to the five-star Shangri-La Hotel, this makes The Astra Condo a very special project indeed. Towering over most of the other buildings in the immediate vicinity, The Astra offers breathtaking views right across the city to the peak of Doi Suthep Mountain to the west and the Ping River to the east. This unique combination of spectacular views and an ideal location guarantees rapid capital appreciation and high rental returns for all buyers here.
Built on a large plot of 5-rai, The Astra Condo offers 589 exceptional residences split between the two buildings. Living up to its contemporary exteriors and distinct Lanna cultural design, The Astra combines traditional Thai charm and modern convenience together with state-of-the-art technology. The large plot upon which The Astra is built offers an exceptionally wide variety of facilities for the use of owners and guests. The entire project is set in beautiful, green landscaped gardens and features roof terraces at the top of both buildings, each with a large infinity pool so that residents can enjoy the panoramic views as they swim. Uniquely, there is also an on-site shopping plaza which will feature cafes, boutiques, restaurants plus a variety of other retail stores for guests' convenience. The entire top floor of the building contains yet more facilities still, including a spa centre, sauna and steam room.
There is a wide variety of unit types for buyers at The Astra to choose from. The one-bedroom apartments here range from affordable units of 30m2 up to larger sizes more suitable for year-round living sized at 50m2. Two-bedroom apartments here range from 46-82m2, while those with families will find the 94m2 three-bedroom apartments to be ideal for their needs. Those looking to the ultimate apartments on this exclusive project have a variety of duplex penthouse apartments to choose from, ranging in size from 78m2 up to 183m2 and containing either one or two-bedrooms.
Currently, The Astra offers some great incentives for early buyers on the project. While all apartments here are supplied on a fully-furnished basis, early-bird buyers will also get free electrical items installed in their apartments plus kitchenware and bedding - everything you need to start living in this exciting project immediately upon completion in June 2016. Those looking to buy here as an investment rather than as a home for themselves should be interested in the development's Guaranteed Rental Scheme, which offers a return of 5% per annum for a period of three years for any apartment on the 12th through 15th floors.
The best units on a project this unique are not going to be on the market for long, so act quickly if you want to take advantage of the special offers that are currently available at The Astra.
