Ubon Ratchathani News & Development

Recommended Posts

Starting a new thread to try to combine some of the news from around Ubon starting with...

A new overpass is going to be built at the Wanarom intersection. This is where the ring road and Chayangkun Rd. meet. The overpass will go up and over Chayangkun Rd. This is the most congested intersection on the ring road and will be a significant improvement. No idea when it will be begin though.

A new condo is coming by a company that already has condos in Udon, Mahasarakham and Khon Kaen. Somewhere along Chayangkun Rd. No word on prices yet as they just made the announcement. Should know in June.

Website doesn't have info on Ubon condo yet.

Facebook is where they announced the Ubon condo.

Another condo has already started near Big C and Ubon Square called The Grand Condo Ubon. It's not clear which picture they will be building. What is clear is that it will be 28,000b/sq.m.

Facebook page is here.

A 3rd condo will be built by a company called Phetcharat Land & House. They are currently working on a pretty large townhouse project called "Chayangkul Village" on a piece of property that separates Chayangkun 40 and 42 straight East of Big C but they haven't even purchased land for the condo yet. 3 story townhouses go for 2.5mil and I think 2 stories start at 1.6mil.

The current townhouse project has a Facebook page.

Also advertising here.

These condos can only go so high. Here's an interesting map overlay showing restricted area for building tall buildings because of the airport.

Yet another new Toyota dealer will be going up next to Central.

Still not sure what is going up behind Central though. Parking security said an international school and a housing development. Anyone else know?

You might remember Ubon's Salaklang (provincial government building) being burned on May 19, 2010. See here and here and

. The new one is almost finished just outside of town on the road to Yasothon.

To add a little more to what's going up in Ubon, Global House are well on the way with construction on the ring road. Its just before the bridge on the right that goes over the train line between the Sisaket road and the where Bid C Warin is. All Ubon needs is another hardware place. Also just what Ubon needs is another shopping center. "The Mall" has started or is about to start construction of it's new center on the road to Yasothon near the new courthouse and where the new second ring road will be. Another whisper I heard was near Central on Sappasit road, Bangkok Hospital are planning a project there. Could be a rumour. Cheers

The Mall Group? As in the same company that owns the Paragon? http://themallgroup.com

I can't find any info about it yet but did see someone recently ask about it on a Thai forum as well. Interesting.

More about the 2nd and 3rd ring roads here.

Can't find any more updates on the hospital other than what we discussed here.

Well well Ubonrthai. You didn’t know about the Mall development. We old hands in the “know” have heard about this for several months. I tell you what, it is all action on the north west side of town. Thank you Alias John.

I guess I don’t have to tell you Ubonrthai as you seem to have a finger on every development in Ubon city, but I guess today you saw the dozens of trucks doing work on the swampy ground in front of Ratchathani University, opposite Central. Informed sources say that Central has purchased Ratchathani University to build a resort complex and maybe a golf course there. Central will build a new campus for Ratchathani University up past the new Mall project on the Yasothorn road.

But hey, why am I telling you this? You would know this already. Sorry for the old news.

With all this shopping development taking place in Ubon (Central, The Mall, Global House) the cost of living must increase. I wonder how the Sunee Mall is faring. I am told it is as quiet as a mouse there. Never liked it anyway. A chicken farmer building a hotel and shopping centre in a hospital!

As for the old shops in the old area of town near the river. I wonder who goes there nowadays to buy things? For example, my microwave crapped again on Friday just after it was repaired for the fourth time in the old city. I decided to drive 3 minutes from my home to Home Pro and received wonderful service, bought a new microwave and they threw in an electric cooker as a free gift. Great parking, great service, and good products.

Good news about the overhead bridge on Chaiyangkun – by pass intersection. Long over due. I am also informed that perhaps these mega loans the government has taken out to built such projects as the high speed rail system may not take place. Instead the money will come and be diverted into projects like the overhead bridge above.

Last week a person from the Central project came to buy grass seed for erosion control on their embankments along the road going back into Benchamart school. It has eroded badly. I only have seed for cows. They took some as they were in dire straits. We do have species under development for erosion control but unfortunately no seed is available at the moment.

I am interested to see where the flood waters flow to in August and September

I'm not an old hand yet so I have to rely on Google instead of word of mouth. wink.png

Not just today. Every time I drive over that bridge there's endless trucks going under. I've been meaning to take my bike down there to see where they're coming from and where they're going.

Wonder how the Sunee Mall is faring.

I've been there several times since Central opened. Seemed pretty normal. I think it's location will always keep it relevant.

You and everyone else in town.

Has anyone heard anymore about a school going up behind Central too?
