On a beautiful sunny Chiang Mai morning on December 26, 2013, Chiang Mai Mail General Manager Peerasan Wongsri met with Khun Songkran Issara of Chan Issara Development Public Co. Ltd. The cozy conversation was held at the Issara showroom in Chiang Mai as K. Issara paid a flying visit to the city.

Songkran Issara of Chan Issara Development Public Co. Ltd. chats about their new development in Chiang Mai.

K. Issara is originally from Songkhla Province in the South, the son of Chan and Malee Issara. Married to Sri Issara, he has three children; two sons and a daughter. He was recently appointed as Managing Director fo the Chan Issara Wiphapol Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of Chan Issara Development Public Co. Ltd. Chan Issara Development Public Co. Ltd. have built housing in Bangkok, Phuket and Cha-am - Hua Hin and their over 25 years of experience has made them the leading real estate company in Thailand. Known for quality construction and design, the company’s newest development will feature 570 units in 4 low rise buildings in a Northern Contemporary design with a large central green area on 6.5 rai of land on the 2nd ring road.

Khun Peerasan: Where and how was “Chan Issara“ established ?

Khun Songkran: The company was established in1987; we began to develop and facilitate real-estates in Bangkok and have gradually expanded its business to tourism destinations such as Phuket and Hua Hin before becoming the leading real-estate company in Thailand. The company has continued its expansion of developments to other popular locations in Thailand, like Chiang Mai.

Khun Peerasan: How have resources been allocated for this project?

Khun Songkran: For THE ISSARA Chiangmai , we have allocated the project over 6.5 Rai of land, situated near the 2nd Ring Road, a short 5 minute drive from Central Festival at San Dek Intersection.

The company will build condos in a Northern Contemporary style style under the concept ‘Special uniqueness inspired by inherited cultural arts amidst the natural charms of Chiang Mai’. Unique features of the project include a central green area, which covers over half the project, a library, a jacuzzi, children’s swimming pool, a gym, and a swimming pool next to Maenam Kao. Providing 24 hour security and a spacious lobby, the condo offers a peaceful and secure ambience.

THE ISSARA Chiangmai will have 7 storey low rise buildings, with a total of 4 buildings consisting of 570 units. We will offer 1 bedroom condos from 35-40 sqm starting from 1.89-3.28 million baht and 2 bedroom condos from 70-77 sqm from 4.99-7.25 million baht. Reservations will be available from May 2014 and the project is most likely to be completed in 2016.

The Chan Issara will offer resort style living with serviced units and 24 hour security for both the regular visitor and full time resident.

Khun Peerasan: What was the objective of choosing Chiang Mai ?

Khun Songkran: There are many projects under construction for ISSARA GROUP, including Bangkok, Phuket, Cha-am – Hua Hin and now Chiang Mai. Personally, I prefer up country projects, and to make them resort style. I have had my eye on Chiang Mai for 15-20 years but back then Chiang Mai was not ready in many aspects.

Today the infrastructure is ready with an international airport, an international conference center, the Night Safari and schools. The roads have been developed plus the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 will make Chiang Mai the Northern hub. In addition, Chiang Mai has seen higher income growth resulting in higher purchasing power by locals.

Khun Peerasan: Is it true that the Sri Panwa project by THE ISSARA in Phuket has earned a world class reputation and is attracting a large amount of tourists in Phuket ?

Khun Songkran: “Yes, the Sri Panwa project in Phuket has developed a lot and was constructed as a hotel and resort atmosphere. Recently, the Sri Panwa has received notice as a world class attraction which brings income to the people in the area as visitors come. As for the previous projects, we have enhanced the service for customers and are still developing a new look to serve customers in Chiang Mai”.

Khun Peerasan: Why did you choose Chiang Mai?

Khun Songkran: “In the past, Chiang Mai real-estate did grow quickly but itwas not ready; we are doing a project here because we believe the Chiang Mai is ready for such a development. Real-estate developers in Chiang Mai are known as developers with potential, including investing power and there is high competition here.

The Chan Issara will have 570 units in 4 low rise buildings with a large central green area on 6.5 rai of land on the 2nd ring road, the construction site is now open for interested visitors.

This requires that our project have unique features whether it is design, environment, and accessibility to such places as Tesco Lotus, Central Festival, Meechoke Plaza and the hospital. Plus it is located next to the Kao river, which will be integrated into the project offering the convenience of city life amid the pleasurable ambiance of a resort. The project will focus on after-services, we expect 40% of customers will be locals, 30% from Bangkok and another 30% will be foreigners. For those who do not live here regularly, the project will provide cleaning services including looking after the unit after every visit and the project will allow customers to rent according to their wishes. Unit bookings can be made from May 2014 onwards.”
