The event marks an important milestone at the beachfront development, signifying that the structural work on the 54- and 46-storey towers is now complete, and the project?s construction is on schedule.

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations are making excellent progress. The interiors fit-outs include kitchens and wardrobes and the installation teams are working their way up the tower.

Pattaya?s skyline has been rising in recent years with a total of twelve buildings in the 30- to 50-storey range, but Northpoint is set to dominate for the foreseeable future with its 205-metre height and soaring 54 stories.

Raimon Land Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Cornick, said: ?Our third floor mock-up units in both towers are nearing completion, and will set a new benchmark in Pattaya?s luxury real estate for quality in materials and design, which will be achieved throughout the project.?

The units range from studios up to duplex penthouses and exhibit high-quality fit outs such as frameless glass shower enclosures, concealed water heaters and built-in kitchens and wardrobes, as well as cutting-edge Siemens Smart Home remote control systems that reduce energy consumption and increase safety.

Lead construction partner, world-renown conglomerate Bouygues Thai is overseeing the complex, with the excellent completion rate of two floors per week.

They were also joined by the heroes of the hit Superstar reality TV show, Akara Amatayakul (left) and on the right with Mr. Cornick are Naowarat Yuktanan and Pakaporn Poowapatchim.

Bouygues Thai Managing Director, Jean-Marie Verbrugghe, said: ?This has been one of the most fulfilling projects we have ever worked on, and our first in Pattaya. We are proud to be a part of the team that is raising the levels of luxury in exclusive condominiums in the city.?

Northpoint?s topping-off ceremony comes as sales for the 376-unit project, launched in November 2006, surged past THB3.23 billion to 64% of its total value on the turnover of 262 condominium units, while reaching 98% of its foreign quota.

Mr Cornick added: ?This shows that the market remains buoyant despite difficult times, as investors, Thais as well as foreigners, seeking the great outdoor lifestyle offered by Pattaya and the booming Eastern Seaboard know they can achieve strong capital gains and attractive rental returns from high-end residential projects.?
