Digital Park For The Tech Community In Chon Buri

Published by:

Sri Racha is known as a popular hot sauce but the topic here is the town after which it was named for. In this town of Thailand, you will find town home in Sriracha that has better quality than other town homes. From being an unknown fishing village, Sri Racha is now a busy area that is feeling the effects of industrialization and development.

Proposal for a 100-hectare digital park for Chon Buri was unveiled at industry event, Digital Thailand Big Bang Conference. This will herald a major step towards Thailand’s aspirations towards becoming digital. The site that will be predominantly used by digital and technology industries will provide opportunities to 58,000 people who live and work there.

The digital park will be located in Sri Racha district in Chon Buri. Development of the new project will take 10 to 15 years. The project which will be part of the Eastern Economic Corridor special economic zone will include a range of educational and science facilities including a residential community. Digital Park Thailand will support the existing industries, communities, universities and automotive and agricultural sectors.

The proposal also suggests for a direct connection to the proposed high speed rail link and new station in Sri Racha to improve connectivity and significantly boost development. According to the master design plan, various specialist clusters will be built along a central park including a retail and lifestyle hub. Hotels will provide the facilities for meetings, conferences, conventions and exhibitions for the business community.

The Digital Park will be friendly to pedestrians and cyclists and will have access to a public network of local buses connected to the transit system, high speed rail and airports. While the project is being patterned against international best practice for planning technology parks and workplaces, the urban campus will be created in a way that is uniquely Thailand.

Today is the perfect time for people to invest in town home in Sriracha while property prices are have not yet gone too high. Do not miss the opportunity because after a few years, the digital park project will push property prices upwards particularly when a new station for high speed rail is built in Sri Racha.

NYCHA Developments To Get New Boilers

Published by:

An announcement was made by Mayor Bill de Blasio regarding an investment worth $200 million which is going to be used in changing old boilers as well as upgrading the heating systems in 20 different developments under the NYCHA. The plan is set to be completed before 2022. There are many different types of boilers and the ones used by the developments have been considered during the budget allotment.

The funding will be used on sites that require upgrade the most such as those experiencing severe heat and lack of hot water majority of the times. The program aims to replace old boilers and upgrade the heating controls to more modern ones. After the replacements and upgrades are completed, around 45,000 residents will be enjoying the new facilities.

Through the upgrade, NYCHA will be able to save an annual cost of $5 million which is spent on heating costs.

According to de Blasio, this program is similar to the investment they made when they replaced old roofs because it is geared towards solving one of the main problems of the residents of NYCHA. The management expects that thousands of residents will feel the improvement once it is completed. Due to the cold winter which is not like any before it, the old boilers as well as the pipes were subjected to extreme temperature. He added that they are trying to solve the main issues thus they are encouraging their partners, both in the state and federal level, to do similar.

For the fiscal years between 2014 and 2027, De Blasio has pledged to give $2.1 billion for the capital infrastructure of NYCHA while between fiscal years 2014 and 2022, the operations of the agency can expect a funding of $1.6 billion.

Alicka Ampry-Samuel, council member and Committee on Public Housing’s chairman, said that they are praising Mayor de Blasio for his decision and for prioritizing the residents of NYCHA. They recognized that a number of developments are facing challenges especially in different types of boilers and heating system. The $200 million will help them especially now that their funding has been reduced by the federal government.
