Maya Shopping Center Presentation Video

51 posts in this topic

I think the design could have been a lot worse in visual terms.

Right now it looks pretty low key from my location. Doesn't take up any more skyline and color choice is stealthy. It's practically same color as military aircraft and warships.

They will probably add big promotional LCD screens so not looking forward to that feature.

They'd have to, or people won't be able to find it in March.

It will be interesting on its impact to KSK and Centrals response to this property.

Quotes : "Maya an urban living lifestyle centre" whatever that means.

"Maya ...the heart and soul of Chiang Mai" another nail in the coffin of Loh Kroi Rd.blink.png

Are you saying that Maya is going to cater to the bar and bar girls scene.

I missed that part.

No ice rink on this one.

I am sure you will see them there on shopping sprees with their Tirak.

I'm ready! Nice to see all this so close. Too bad they're not considering pedestrian entry across the Superhighway -- no evidence of a walkover bridge being built. But, that intersection already suffers from so much gridlock that it's fairly easy to walk thru the cars parked waiting for the light, provided you watch out for the motorcycles weaving in-and-out.

Walkover bridges are apparently not mandatory in any development in CM.Take Airport Plaza. Been there for how long ? Pedestrian crossing on HD Road is ignored by road users and the number of people that take to a hazardous crossing under the fly over is quite scary. If you happen to have a physical impediment or simple aged...tough luck

I was thinking the same thing. With the aging (me) population they should consider pedestrian over passes with escalators like at Tesco where they can take shopping carts.

It was pretty obvious that the city was going to do nothing about the traffic when they approved the plans for the mall.

They are talking about a rapid transit and even have a proposed route for it. They just can't figure out what kind of a system would work. That is if they are even half way serious about it. Even with a rapid transit system it would only be a temporary relief for that intersection as the city continues to grow.sad.png

"Maya an urban living lifestyle centre" means the same thing as 'Promanada resort mall'.

All these new shopping centers seem to be aiming at the BKK yuppy market. If the Prom is any indication of the traffic that another CM mall will bring, then there are no worries as the Prom seems like a ghost mall on the several occasions that I've been. Not complaining, as I don't like the crowds and lack of decent parking of KSK and AP.

If you were going to spend billions of Baht on a development project, wouldn't you want to get the promotional materials just right? Wouldn't you think to have English text & narration checked by a native speaker before sending them out into the world? Or would that mean a loss of face for someone in the marketing team? The mall itself looks ok to me as far as malls go, but I'm always surprised to see such tortured & error-strewn English being used to promote big money housing developments, condos and shopping centers in Thailand.

This thing is just going to choke up traffic like nothing else. nimmanhaemin road and Huay Kaew coming from the Uni are horrendous in peak hour as it is.

I haven't been to CM since January of this year. What stage are they at regarding construction and when is it likely to open?

I live just behind. We watched its building process since the beginning last year.

My wife always told me she wanted to be at a walking distance from a mall. Her jubilation!402.gif

I just hope to find a Rimping kinna grocery store there. I cook, she cleans. licklips.gif

I thought somebody on here said both a TOPS and Rimping will be in Maya.

For sure I have heard TOPS will be there.

For the most part I am happy with the design and road changes. I was braced for the worst.

Pleasantly surprised so far anyway.

Some years ago Winnie t K launched a question - which was the worst intersection in/around the city? This was it. Morning traffic ought not to be worse by much, but just thinking about N and S traffic on Canal after 10 or 11 (opening time) gives a great headache, particularly when tied to the developments to the north and west. Beauty and pace are crumbling fast.

So it goes.
