Habitus is the new exciting boutique style resort project from Powerhouse Developments. Set on two rai 319 tw, or 4476 sqm, the plot of land is located in Soi 17 Thepprasit Road, Jomtien; close to the local market, bars and restaurants and within 800 metres of the beach, as well as having easy accessibility to Pattaya, supermarkets and the main Sukhumvit Road.
The project comprises three buildings, with a total of 228 units on site. Each building will have its own underground car parking. With 30 spaces available in building A, 20 in building B, and 25 in building C. A total of 75 in all giving a ratio of almost one space for every three units. This is one of the highest in Pattaya. Each car park will have its own lobby area with an elevator as well as post boxes for each unit. There are also three stair wells in each building. There will be a drop off and turning area at the end of building C.
The people behind Powerhouse Developments, the company building Habitus, have a track record of building projects in countries as diverse as Canada, Malaysia, Mexico and Singapore, as well as Thailand. Between them they have over 60 years worth of experience in architecture, design, and construction and it is this combined expertise which has come up with the Skylight and Waters Edge concepts and now, their Habitus project.
Water’s Edge, in Na Jomtien, is set to be completed by the middle of this year, and consists of just 37 units a mere six metres from the sea.
Skylight, close by the Hanuman statue, will be 56 units set in a seven-storey atrium with a functional skylight, the first of its kind in Pattaya. Construction for this is expected to begin in the middle of this year.
Habitus will be have at least 30% green area and there will be three large swimming pools on site. These will be complemented by attractive sun terrace area, relaxation gardens, hydrotherapy pool and reflection pools all beautifully landscaped.
There will be walkways throughout the grounds some of which will be sloped, so making the project wheelchair friendly as well as assisting those with young families. A gymnasium can also be found in building C.
The three buildings vary in size with building A housing 85 units, building B 62, and building C 81 units. There are six types of unit configuration within this project. Habitus will have 83 32sqm studios, which have been designed as modular units so they can be easily combined. They also have 75 one-bedroom units of 48sqm, and 18 two-bedroom units of 64sqm. In addition to these there are three special configurations. The first of these are 29 ground floor loft units. These are two-storey units of 56 sqm and will have a six-metre high glass frontage so giving great views over the elevated swimming pools or the landscaped areas. Further to this are 21 duplex units which are on the top two floors; here you not only get one balcony but the upper floor balcony will have its own private plunge pool, measuring 1 x 2.5m. Also, the two penthouses will have their own pools, measuring 3.1 x 1.5m. The penthouses are three-bedroom duplex units of 122 sqm. Click here to view the full Habitus brochure.
All units will come complete with air con, fitted bathrooms and kitchens. Consider this: the fitted kitchen’s are to be produced by the Bangkok-based firm RCD, one of the leaders in the capital in kitchen design. The kitchen tiles, as one example, are of such high quality they’re one-centimetre thick.
Also included is a floating breakfast bar with glass support. All the fitted furniture will be done in white oak.
Powerhouse are also confident of helping those who wish to take up units in Habitus for investment purposes of achieving a guaranteed eight percent return on rentals. That’s way better than bank interest is likely to be for some years into the future.
Being centrally sited in Jomtien Beach, a location proven to be one of the strongest growth regions in Thailand, means it will offer the ultimate in convenience, whilst retaining privacy.
The project offers great 360 degree views either looking over lovely greenery or well-maintained villas looking out towards the ocean so making for an idyllic, tranquil location.
As it stands, almost 25 per cent of the units have already been pre-sold, with interest from both Thais as well as foreigners with the showroom set to start soon.
