The Inspiration for 88 Suites SoHo, Phnom Penh, with Architect Chee Eun Tang on

With a growing range of condominium units coming into the Cambodian market, many have expressed their concern over ongoing and future condominium projects which may contribute to an eventual oversupply. But this did not deter YCT Land Pte Ltd, an established Malaysian developer, from constructing what would be a first in this country.

Paving the way and utilizing the expertise of Kuala Lumpur-based architectural firm, SW1P Collective, 88 Suites – a “small office, home office” property – will now be introduced into the Phnom Penh skyline and property market.

Otherwise known as SOHO, this type of property has been popular in different countries for quite some time now such as in Malaysia and Hong Kong. This is due to its dual-purpose characteristics. This, according to Mr. Chee Eun Tang – the Director of SW1P – will cater to both the younger and older generations who are looking for either self-use or for future investment.

For 88 Suites, SW1P has created a tall, elegant, and eco-tropical building that glimmers under the sunlight. The external metal mesh screen not only provides sun-shading purposes while optimizing incoming natural daylight, but is also a design tribute to Cambodian traditional textile. Within that narrow exterior are three types of SOHO units which are thoughtfully finished and furnished to international quality and standards. These units include the 85 square meter SOHO Luxe, 100 square meter SOHO Loft (duplex unit), and the 50 square meter SOHO Executive.

88 Suites will also feature the first Intelligent Car Parking System in Phnom Penh which will allow auto mechanisms to park a car without the need for a driver or valet, keeping everything compact, convenient and secured for unit owners.

"Life in Balance", the SOHO concept for 88 Suites, according to Mr. Tang, promotes a modern lifestyle for "live, work, play."

Unit owners live in a comfortable and fully secured environment, while enjoying the convenience of both business and leisure amenities such as the sky lounge with meeting rooms, business centers, infinity pool, sky gymnasium, saunas, 24-hour and 4-tier security system, modern bathrooms and kitchens fitted with products from world-class brands such as Villeroy & Boch, and GROHE. The building will also have wireless internet connection throughout.

Located in the heart of the capital in Boeung Keng Kang 1, 88 Suites is accessible to nearby destinations, including the Mao Tse Toung Boulevard, Preah Norodom, Naga World, Phnom Penh International Airport, Sisowath Quay, and the Aeon Mall. It also comes with an impressive 360-degree view of Phnom Penh  City that also overlooks the Mekong River.

Amidst the growing number of the usual condominium developments, 88 Suites serves as a breath of fresh air and as a challenge for future and existing developers to step up their game. Should their SOHO concept find success, this may be the start of a whole new property market in Cambodia.
