Ms. Wallaya Chirathivat, President and CEO of Central Pattana plc, stated, "Over the years, we have achieved success with The Ecosystem for All, a retail-led model where synergy is the key to supporting every part to grow together. This year, we will continue with our commitment to build even more strengths for the entire ecosystem, while continuously driving the country's economy forward. Over the past 7 years (2017-2023), we have invested an average of 15,000-22,000 million baht annually. Last year, we achieved success in terms of annual performance with revenue of 46,790 million baht, a 26% increase from the previous year. This includes setting new highs in terms of shopping center traffic, store sales, and dividends. Additionally, investments in CPNREIT property leasing rights have increased revenue by 16% and provided unit holders with a 10% yield."

Furthermore, Central Pattana continues to adhere to its long-term investment plan. Over the next 5 years, from 2024 to 2028, a total investment of 121,000 million baht is scheduled.

Currently, we have 20 mixed-use projects. Last year, we expanded to include Ubon Ratchathani, Ayutthaya, Chonburi, Si Racha, and Hat Yai. In the future, we plan to expand both in Bangkok and various provinces such as Nakhon Sawan, Nakhon Pathom, Nakhon Si Thammarat, and Surat Thani, with plans to open in Krabi next year. Our vision to create The Ecosystem for All, with Retail-Led Synergy, helps support all businesses to connect and grow stronger.

Mr. Chanawat Uahwatanasakul, Chief Development and Commercial Officer at Central Pattana plc, said: "In the role of Place Making with Central Pattana Dynamism DNA, we never stand still and strive to create 'new spaces' with a dedicated focus on developing excellent projects and creating impacts for the nation. These initiatives include:

  • Initiating the Centre of Life and establishing New Districts, exemplified by our latest project, "Central WestVille," which serves as a new landmark in western Bangkok. Recognizing the evolving dynamics and lifestyle changes of the community, we are committed to developing shopping centers that introduce innovative offerings and cater to the increasing purchasing power of customers. We allocate total investment of 23,000 million baht in 5 years for Asset Enhancement, equivalent to the investment in opening new shopping centers. This year, we are undertaking a turnaround of shopping centers strategically located around the Bangkok Metropolitan Area: Central Pinklao, Central Bangna, Central Chaengwattana, Central Rattanathibet. Additionally, we are preparing to revamp "Central Pattaya" to accommodate the influx of tourists and transforming "Central Marina" into an Outlet Format, seizing the opportunity presented by the shopping behavior of another group of tourists.
  • Mixed-use project expansion - Aiming to drive the potential of both main and secondary cities while also creating local wealth and presenting local essence to the World. This year, we are opening two new projects: "Central Nakhon Sawan," which has become the talk of the town, elevating the city to be the Gateway to the North. On March 30, 2024, we are preparing to open "Central Nakhon Pathom," connecting with the western region such as Kanchanaburi and Ratchaburi provinces, featuring a large garden area for families, beautiful designs reflecting the city's identity, including the Phra Pathom Chedi. In 2025, we are gearing up to open "Central Krabi," a project worth 4.5 billion baht, enriching the retail lifestyle of Krabi, a world-renowned tourist destination that accommodates the purchasing power of local entrepreneurs and tourists.
  • To create "The World's New Magnitude" - We believe that Bangkok still has opportunities to expand its commercial and business districts in many areas of the city, resembling the models of major cities worldwide. We will develop five mixed-use projects with a combined area of over 2.2 million square meters. These projects will be located in Super Prime Locations around Bangkok, situated on major roads and connected to the skytrain. Each project will be a flagship that meets the needs of future living and will be a landmark attracting tourists from around the world. Get ready to explore our inaugural project, 'Dusit Central Park,' a Retail Re: Imagined venture that caters to green urban living in the heart of the city. This September, the new Dusit Thani Hotel will be revealed, along with the opening of the office building and the Central Park shopping center next year, 2025.
