The area of Makkasan is owned by the State Railway of Thailand (SRT). Since the actual land is underdeveloped, the SRT has proposed the Makkasan area for commercial purposes in order to correspond to its status as the Central Business District (C.B.D.). It is further awaiting its development as a transportation hub, connecting Suvarnabhumi International Airport to other areas of Bangkok.
The proposed planning for Makkasan project compromises commercial purpose and the recreational purpose following three steps:
Maximizing Floor Area Ratio (FAR)=1:10
Alternative designing high rise building to at least 100 Storey
Open space ratio (O.S.R) comparing buildable area = 90:10
