*PET FRIENDLY* Aguston is a stunning-looking development consisting of 269 apartments located in two towers – one 36-storeys high and the other of 24-storeys – which stands out from the crowd in every sense of the word. Whereas the majority of new developments in Bangkok today look quite similar from an architectural point of view, the look of Aguston is totally unique because the development features a ‘Moorish’ style of architecture similar to the styles found in Spain and Morocco. The orange shade of the two buildings together with the exquisite attention-to-detail of the carved-stone highlights means that Aguston has already become an iconic building which really stands out from the other buildings on the Bangkok skyline.The development is located in the highly popular Khlong Toei/Sukhumvit part of the city, with easy access to a variety of shopping and entertainment options. For those who need to take a break from the bustling city from time to time, the beautiful greenery and lakes of Benjakiti and Benjasiri Parks are less than 500m from here.Also less than 500m from Aguston is the Queen Sirikhit Convention Centre and the Stock Exchange of Thailand, which means that the development is a highly popular one with rental tenants – for both short-term and long-term rentals. Queen Sirikhit BTS Station is also less than 500m from Aguston, making it a quick and easy journey to get into Bangkok’s downtown area.As well as its fascinating and unique architecture and highly convenient location, another factor which makes Aguston such a desirable place to live is the amazing amount of facilities that are available to residents here. Aguston has all of the facilities that are expected from new developments on sale in the city – including two large swimming pools with excellent views over the city, a fully-equipped fitness centre, jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms, but it also offers several facilities which are probably unique in all of Bangkok. These include a bowling alley and even a golf room with electronic golf simulators. Once again, such a variety of innovative facilities enhance the desirability of Aguston for all forms of tenants, meaning that rental yields here are high.Apartment sizes here are large, therefore making them more appealing to the long-term rental market. With Aguston being the flagship development from one of Thailand’s biggest and most longest-established developers, you can be sure that the build quality of the project is five-star, with kitchen and bathroom fixtures and fittings all from the finest brands such as Siemens, Kohler and Grohe.Having been completed in 2010, Aguston is ready to move into immediately. It therefore makes for a great place for anyone to live or an excellent rental property, obtaining gross yields of up to 7% per annum.
