Central Westville Transforms Western Bangkok with Innovative Shopping District

Now Open! 'Central Westville' Transforms Bangkok's Western Skyline into the Ultimate Lifestyle Destination

Central Pattana Plc., a leading Thai real estate developer dedicated to sustainability, and renowned for developing Central shopping centres, residential projects, office buildings, and hotels across Thailand, proudly unveils 'Central Westville.' Valued at 6.2 billion baht, this new landmark in Western Bangkok emerges as the cornerstone of the 'Westville District,' elevating the entire area's lifestyle under the banner of "West at Its Best," committed to providing the highest quality of life for all. Featuring over 300 leading brands and stores, the project offers an unparalleled experience across dining, family activities, pet-friendly spaces, sports, and fashion destinations. This includes over 80 restaurants, along with seamless integration of Central Group businesses, featuring 'Central Factory,' housing 700 renowned brands, Tops Food Hall as the exclusive destination in the district, and collaborations with Power Buy, B2S, Supersports, and Officemate.

Innovating with eco-friendliness and pet-friendliness at its core, Central Westville introduces the concept of the 'First Nature Harmonized Retail,' a semi-outdoor model, and a low-carbon mall. The project reflects a trend toward urban development focused on sustainability and a harmonious coexistence with nature.

Brand Strategy Unveiled: Why Westville District? Dr. Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, Chief Marketing Officer of Central Pattana Plc., emphasises that Central Westville's launch is not merely the opening of a shopping centre but the creation of a new district. It reflects the unique lifestyle and potential of the area, elevating its status. The aim is to establish a clear urban planning framework, similar to renowned global cities identified by their distinct districts, such as New York City's Upper Eastside or London's City of Westminster. The introduction of the Westville District, with Central Westville as its flagship, is expected to boost land values by 50-60% whenever a Central shopping centre is established in a location.

He further elaborates on Central Pattana's vision of expanding Bangkok beyond the traditional CBD by implementing the Strategic Rings strategy. This strategy involves creating districts around Bangkok, including 'Central Eastville' in the east, enhancing Nonthaburi's potential with 'Central Westgate, Rattanathibet,' and the recent addition of 'Westville.' Additionally, the expansion extends to outer areas, as exemplified by 'Central Salaya' in Nakhon Pathom, with plans to open 'Central Nakhon Pathom' the following year. Central Pattana also extends its influence to Samut Sakhon with 'Central Mahachai' and to Samut Prakan with the luxury outlet 'Central Village,' among other developments.
