The Rink Central World, Bangkok

1.9
CentralWorld is a shopping plaza and complex in Bangkok, Thailand. It is the tenth largest shopping complex in the world. The complex, which includes a hotel and office tower, is owned by Central Pattana. In 2006, after three years of design and renovation, CentralWorld was expanded to 550,000 square metres of shopping mall and 1,024,000 square metres of complex, topping nearby rival Siam Paragon in terms of size.
On 19 May 2010, CentralWorld was one of the many properties set on fire when the Red Shirts anti-government protesters were forcibly removed after months of demonstrations which included complete blockage of the Rachaprasong shopping district. The parts of the complex most affected were the Zen department store and its adjacent annex.
A portion of the shopping complex reopened on 28 September 2010 after months of repair work.
World Trade CenterOriginally called the World Trade Center, the eight-story mall was opened in 1990. Central Group acquired the property in 2002 from the Wang Petchaboon group and changed the name to Central World Plaza. In 2005 it was renamed CentralWorld. It is on leased Crown Property Bureau land. In its acquisition, the Central Group's property development arm, Central Pattana (SET: CPN), secured a new 30-year lease on the site.
Mall renovationsAnticipating the opening of the luxury Siam Paragon, CPN started massive renovations and expansion on the site in 2003. The original mall structure was 300,000 square meters. The expansion plans boosted that to 550,000 square meters. Though work was not yet complete, CPN held an official opening of the renovated complex on July 21, 2006; it was expected to be fully operational by October 2006. By May 2007 the mall was fully opened, but some parts of the upper floors remained vacant. Major exterior construction was ongoing on the hotel in the northwest corner of the mall and the extension floors to the ZEN department store in southeast corner.

  • There was so much water on top of the ice, if someone were to fall, it would be like a day at the pool. We didn't rent any skates... Dissapointed  more »
