“Starting out with enough capital for one project,” he says, was one of several challenges he and his team faced in the early days, but operating in a sector of the market where the competition was much lower and in which the bigger players were not interested meant that Origin Property would succeed, “and before we know it we had ten projects. Our hardship has paid off.”
Origin Property, since its beginnings in 2009, has achieved several milestones. One is the establishment of Knightsbridge Bearing, the first high-rise building in a new area in greater Bangkok. This was in 2014, and Peerapong considers this milestone one of the most significant in the company’s history. The company was then listed on the Stock Exchange in Thailand in 2014. In 2016, the company established its first hotel chain with the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) in the Sriracha area in 2016. In the same year, units of the company’s first development in Bangkok city centre, Knightsbridge Prime Sathorn Condominium, were sold-out in one day.
