If this vanity project ever gets built (which is unlikely) I'll make sure I give it a wide berth. Having lived Thailand for 15 years I never cease to be amazed at the 'unique' construction techniques employed here. I doubt though whether there will be enough bamboo to scaffold this monument.

Given the appalling standard of construction in Bangkok involving corruption of officials, watering down of standards, (reducing required steel in concrete, cheap low strength structural steel from China, watering down concrete mixes so they are easier to poor, unskilled cheap labour etc., etc.,), I would be very concerned with the structural integrity of the building.

G Land announces 615m tower for Bangkok 

Developer G Land has revealed details of a new high-rise tower planned for Rama IX Road in Bangkok. The 125-storey tower is due to rise in the city’s latest Central Business District and will offer the first 24-hour office facilities in Bangkok.

This glossy form is the latest in a wave of new construction projects across the city and G Land has looked to rise ahead of the competition - literally - by pitching a tower that reaches 615m in height. If realised, this would make the so-called ‘Super Tower’ the tallest building in Bangkok.

Details of the design are few and far between at this point in time, however the developer has revealed that the project will include an open-air multipurpose plaza above modern conference facilities, plus retail arcades set within a low-rise building flanking the main tower.

A six star hotel is also on the cards, as is a range of dining venues and an enclosed observation deck. The team will aim for LEED Platinum certification.
