Plus forced to scrap top floors - 11 buildings violate height restrictions - Bangkok Post, April 3, 2008
...Plus Property Co, a subsidiary of Sansiri Plc, will remove the top floors at 11 of its Condo One low-rise condominiums to comply with city building limits. Chief executive Mayta Chanchamcharat said the company would also refund down payments to any unsatisfied buyers. The renovation and redesign could cost the company up to 400 million baht.
As a result, Plus had no choice but to remove a floor. It has already sent letters to the affected customers.
On the ninth floors, the company will remove walls and roofs and create closed-dock floors. It will then revise the exterior decoration and apply insulation and waterproofing to prevent heat and water from leaking into the units on the eighth floors.
...Two buildings at The Plus Sathon-Narathiwat site will be able to keep their top floors but at other sites the developer will have to give up a total of 171 units.
''The ninth floors are not allowed for anything, even a garden. We have to close the stairs to the ninth floors as well,'' Mr Mayta said.
By law, a building's height is measured from the ground level of the ground floor to the ceiling of the top floor. Anything higher cannot be used for any purpose...
