Mr.Sithiparb Muengkum, Pattaya Deputy Chief, stated that with Pattaya City constantly growing as an important, tourist venue both, locally and internationally, it is currently facing increasing problems as regards car and boat parking facilities. Each day, many tourists come by car for holidays, quickly filling up existing parking spaces. This especially for tourists who want to go to Koh Larn (Coral Island) and a solution must be found.

Mr. Adul Islam, project manager, stated that the format of the parking facility would be condominium- like, using high technology to construct a parking building on the same space as the existing Bali Hai car park. The building will be 3-storeys high with underground parking. The underground section and the 3rd floor would be designated car parks. 1 and 2-engined boats will use the 1st and 2nd floors. In addition, the roof deck could be used for recreational activities. This building will have a capacity of 400 cars and 800 boats. The building will have a frontage space 20 metres away from the sea and the surroundings will be landscaped to complement the building. A budget of Bt735 million is likely to be required.

Mrs. Daranee Tor-Jaruen, environmental expert of Tesco Co. Ltd. declared that the parking building should be started sometime this year after approval by the Environmental Office and Pattaya City, and the TOR had been obtained, with a completion date of 2010 and great pains have been taken to make the construction environmentally friendly.
