Toul Kork: Attractive Location for Local and International Newcomers

Aug. 14, 2017, 1:25 p.m.


Located in the northern part of Phnom Penh City, Toul Kork is increasingly attracting both expats and locals, largely because land prices in BKK have skyrocketed in recent years. The peak land price in BKK has changed newcomer’s mind by choosing to move to cheaper but potential location such as Toul Kork. Currently, Toul Kork is becoming more popular for newcomers, especially foreigners seeking permanent residence in Cambodia.

Sorn Seap, founder and director of Key Real Estate, said: “Toul Kork has been regarded as a great residential area for a long time ago with many special characteristics. It is considered as the second best residential area after BKK, the best location in Phnom Penh. Recently, there are a few new projects underway such as The Gateway and Phnom Penh City Center, which contributes to Toul Kork’s attractiveness.”

Mr Sorn explained that the development process with regards to residential and commercial operation in Toul Kork is quite similar to BKK. Therefore, how BKK has developed will apply to Toul Kork. In the near future, we will have another BKK area in Toul Kork.”

Houses for rent and sale in Toul Kork vary in price based on locations, sizes, and functions. Villa house, in particular single villa house, is a good option for office spaces. But if you want to use your property for commercial purposes, you can consider flat houses which can be used as a shophouse.

According to Mr Sorn, “Prices of Villa house range from $700,000 to $2 million. Prices of flat houses along the main road ranges from $300,000 to $600,000 while prices of those along the small roads range from $100,000 to $200,000”.

“Renting price of villa house ranges from $2,000 to $5,000 per month, while renting price of flat house or shophouses ranges between $1,500 to $2,500 and $350 to $650 per month for the main roads and small roads respectively.”Check out all type of property for sale and rent with Key Real Estate.

“Over the last decade, Northern fringes of Tuol Kouk district were the first main destination for residential relocation because of its available large portions of vacant land and a neighborhood of the central parts of the capital,” according to the report.
