Lux’s Manor has launched ‘The Sixth Phuket’ project, the first ‘Lifestyle Shophouse’ in Patong Beach. It will have a distinctive architectural design, with the Sino-Portuguese style of old Phuket. There are now spaces for rent, suitable for various businesses.
Mrs. Sarawee Bodharojtham – General Manager of Lux’s Manor, the developer of ‘The Sixth Phuket’, said the company recognizes the importance and potential for marketing in today’s consumer-focused climate. ‘The Sixth Phuket’ will be located on 1 Rai of land located on the corner of Soi Bangla, Patong Beach, Kathu, Phuket. The new three-storey shopping arcade occupies 3,150 square metres of utility space, of which 2,350 square metres will be set for rental and 800 square metres as shared space. 42 rental shop units are also available. The Sixth Phuket will open in November 2011.
‘The Sixth Phuket’ has arisen under the concept ‘Lifestyle Shophouse’. The meaning of the phrase is a place that houses various types of shops within the same area. The project will have spaces to rent on all 3 floors. The areas can be adjusted, as required, to the size of the shop that wishes to rent. The businesses which will suit ‘The Sixth Phuket’ include restaurants, fi nancial services, health and beauty shops and service centers. The rental fee for vendors will depend on the size and position and will start at 40,000 baht to 150,000 baht.
The main highlight of ‘The Sixth Phuket’ is the unique design in Sino-Portuguese style. The project has the intention to merge the local cultural identity and trade location. This will become a key selling point to attract tourists, both Thai and foreign and become a source of shopping that anyone can visit. The current business is not just about selling a product or service, but also the sales experience for customers. Therefore, location is very important when opening shops or businesses.
Mrs. Sarawee said: “We are ready with a public relations and marketing plan to attract customers. It is a great chance for entrepreneurs wanting to open shops at ‘The Sixth Phuket’, because the company is prepared to promote the project via various channels. Public radio, print ads, online media and social media are being used to invite customers to contact the rental company to ensure the location is prime. The Patong area is popular with both residents and tourists throughout the year. The number of domestic tourists is more than 1.7 million people per year and foreign tourists are more than 1.2 million people per year. A large amount of people, with high purchasing power! There is no center with the same concept in this area.”
