Bill Barnett reports in his blog that the project will be located on 150 rai of what is now empty land and coconut plantation just in Kathu, close to Tesco Lotus on the bypass, on the road leading to Patong.

The project will have upscale retail, a hotel element and a themed tourist attraction. Plans also call for a large-scale water park.

Mr Barnett says the development will cost B20 billion.

This will be The Mall Group’s second development outside Bangkok – the first was a Mall in Nakhon Ratchassima.

The group has six Malls in Greater Bangkok. The first was built in 1981 in Ratchadamri. It also owns Bangkok’s Emporium mall.
