The Sathorn Unique, The Ghost Tower of Bangkok

The Sathorn Unique, A skyscraper of unfinished 49-storey building “ghost tower” is a very different kind of attraction of Bangkok, During Thailand’s economic boom in the 1990s, it became a towering addition to the city’s skyline. It is located at the edge of old commercial town of Charernkrung meets the new international business zone of Silom-Sathorn roads. It considered as the best place for overlook at the Bangkok’s grand cityscape and the amenity of the Chao Praya river. A luxury residential skyscraper of over 659 residential homes and 54 shops. But it construction work stopped dramatically in 1997-98, The country’s economy contracted 10% in 1998 and many of the building projects came to a crashing halt, including this 49-story tower. Many towers have finally come to completion and construction is continuing, however many broke developers are still unable or unwilling to take action. Abandoned tower stands empty and dreary, Locals are convinced the building is haunted.
