Bangna Megacity, Bangkok to welcome global entertainment leader Topgolf
Megacity to welcome global entertainment leader Topgolf as Southeast Asia’s ultimate sports and entertainment experience
Megacity, Thailand’s largest all-inclusive lifestyle city development that spans across 400 rai on Bangna-Trad Road, is the latest development by SF Development Co., Ltd. With Megabangna Shopping Centre as the magnet that attracts customers from all areas of the Bangkok metropolitan area, Megacity confirms its newest addition, Topgolf—a lifestyle golf and entertainment experience from the United States. As the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, Topgolf will be establishing its iconic, technologically advanced golf and entertainment concept on 29 rai of land in the Megacity Project development. This addition strengthens Megabangna and Megacity’s positioning as The Great Meeting Place that meets the lifestyle, shopping and entertainment needs of all its customers. Topgolf construction is underway and expected to open by mid-year 2022.
Ms. Paphitchaya Suwandee, Chief Executive Officer of Megabangna Shopping Centre and the Megacity Project by SF Development Co., Ltd. revealed that, "We’ve been envisioning this concept and set the pieces in motion to build a mixed-use project since 2017. A total, massive investment of over THB 67 billion into Megacity revolves around the Megabangna Shopping Centre as its main focal point. Megacity will be home to residential buildings, office towers, shopping and lifestyle destinations which will all be developed in different phases over time.
Currently, a 300-rai plot of land has already been developed, 200 rai of which makes up the Megabangna Shopping Centre area. There is continuous development to improve the overall customer experience with the expansion of the Mega FoodWalk that comes equipped with 1,200 additional parking spaces as well as the new eight-storey parking building with direct connection to IKEA that can accommodate an additional 2,000 cars. These measures bring the total parking capacity at Megabangna to upwards of 12,000 parking spaces. Mega Smart Kids, Mega Park, Didyasarin International Preparatory School Bangkok (D-PREP), and two condominiums by Areeya Property are included in the new landscape of the ongoing development of Megacity."
“Topgolf will most certainly complement the current offerings at Megabangna and strengthen the Megacity Project which reinforces our core identity as the Great Meeting Place of Eastern Bangkok that welcomes and fulfils the needs of customers from not only surrounding communities but from across the entire Bangkok metropolitan area. Every year, we welcome approximately 50 million customers to our shopping centre. We see many opportunities for Topgolf to reach its target goals and become an instant crowd favorite at Megabangna because our core customer base is made up of families with high purchasing power. By teaming up together, Megacity stands to welcome over 250,000 customers per day and Topgolf will become the first lifestyle and golf entertainment destination in Southeast Asia. We see this innovative golf experience as yet another way to attract even more customers from all walks of life to Megabangna. Be it golf aficionados to people just looking to enjoy a fun, new activity with friends and family, the new Topgolf addition truly makes us the Great Meeting Place for everyone,” added Ms. Suwandee.
The new Topgolf Megacity is projected to employ more than 400 people. The three-floor entertainment complex covers more than 47,000 square meters (29 rai), which is the size of almost seven football (soccer) fields, and will include 98 outdoor hitting bays with comfortable seating for up to 600 players at any time. The complex also boasts multiple bars and restaurants, large event rooms, and much more. Guests can enjoy a variety of high-quality food and beverage options: from American classics to Thai cuisine. Top grade, locally sourced ingredients are handpicked by the chef.
