15th December 2022 - Asset World Corp Public Company Limited (AWC), Thailand’s leading integrated lifestyle real estate group, and Gateway at Bangsue, AWC’s affiliated shopping center, reinforced their commitment to "Building a Better Future" and creating value for society by handing over the new “Skywalk Gateway to Bangsue” to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) for public use. The ceremony for the Skywalk, which connects the shopping center to Bang Pho MRT Station, was held on the occasion of 4th anniversary of Gateway at Bangsue, which is evolving towards the concept of Ultimate Fun & Family Experience, a center of integrated shops and services to create the best experience for all family members.

Mr. Bhima Liwlom, Chief of Retail & Wholesale Group Officer, Asset World Corp Public Company Limited, said that, “AWC is committed to creating value for all stakeholders, including the community, society, and the environment, corresponding with its mission of “Building a Better Future”. AWC always considers the living standards and convenience of people in the surrounding areas where the company operates. Therefore, we constructed the Skywalk Gateway at Bangsue, connecting Gateway at Bangsue Shopping Center with the MRT Bang Pho Station, for the safety and convenience of people who commute between two sides of Pracharat Sai 2 Road and the Bang Pho MRT station, including travelers. On the occasion that Gateway at Bangsue celebrates its 4th Anniversary, we would like to hand over the Skywalk to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to deliver benefits to the public and create value for a sustainable society.”

The 270-meter-long Skywalk Gateway at Bangsue, the first skywalk in Bang Pho district, is located in the middle of Pracharat Sai 2 Road. The Skywalk was constructed on 25th November 2020 and opened fully to the public in September 2022.

"Over the years, Gateway at Bangsue has enhanced the quality of life and engaged with the Bangsue community through many social activities, such as restoring and donating items to the temples in Bangsue communities and neighboring areas. This Skywalk is a joint effort of the private sector, the government sector, and the community to create value for society, and to support the government’s energy saving directive of using public transportation instead of driving cars to reduce traffic congestion at Bang Pho intersection and Bangsue District, as well as develop Gateway at Bangsue into a shopping center that provides comprehensive convenience for everyone," Mr. Bhima added.
