Nana Plaza Update – 03/09/10

Construction and not destruction is underway in the controversial Nana Entertainment Plaza.  Once known as the sleepy Nana Shopping Center, it is still a shopping center, but a very different merchandise is on sale nowadays. As you can see from the photos that I took recently, the concrete foundation has been laid.  Those that said Nana Plaza was going to be knocked down this month are talking out their backsides!  Don’t listen to the killjoys, listen to the Go-Go Guru!

CONSTRUCTION NOT DESTRUCTION IN NANA PLAZA (03/09/10)

The large rectangle will apparently house a beer garden, as nothing permanent is permitted to be built on the middle of the ground level.  This is supposedly for fire safety reasons, but that is if it is kept relatively clear.

CONSTRUCTION IS PROGRESSING IN NANA PLAZA

One guy was telling me how terrible the construction area looked.  Well, I’ve worked on a number of building sites in my younger days and I never saw an attractive one.  What is it supposed to look like?  For the lord’s sake, it’s a blooding building site!

THAI CONSTRUCTION TEAM CAUGHT ON CAMERA 'WORKING' IN NANA PLAZA

AMAZING THAILAND – On two consecutive occasions I was shocked to catch the Thai construction team actually working!  I have recorded the evidence for all to see.

BUILDING WORK IS UNDERWAY IN NANA PLAZA ALBEIT SLOWLY

Following the construction work in Nana Plaza is a bit like following a snail trail.  My mates in the building business would have had the job almost finished by now.  Mick and Jimmy would already be planning the opening party.

    How long has the construction been going on for, and has it affected business at NEP much?

    Hi Dave

    Greetings from Dunedin, New Zealand

    There seems to be a problem with the link in your Updates. Has happened with your last two/three posts but I have not had time to advise previously.

    It comes up: Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Query could not be converted to string in /home/content/31/6395131/html/wp-content/plugins/psychic-search/psychic-search.php on line 601

    No problem if I come to the website so I assume the error is somewhere in the link.

    Cheers!
    Richard

  4. Hi Aj, Thanks for your kind words. Let’s chat about meeting. You can email me here – davetheravebangkok@gmail.com

    Hi Bubba, the construction in Nana Plaza has been going on for several weeks now, but it has not affected the bar business at all. In fact, it’s great to be able to see all the bars unhindered by cluttered beer bars.

    Hi Richard, thanks for pointing out the link error. I think I know what is causing the problem. Cheers!

  5. Hi Dave and all others here. Thanks a lot for all the informations prior to my 35th trip to Bangkok on september 10, arriving on september 11 with Thai Airways again. As I had to see the change of NEP here, I will be excited to have more than one look on it originally on saturday ;-). Hope, the nightlife’s still going on as usual. Daves’ website and newsletter so help me not to be too much surprised upon returning after a break of about 9 months …

    Regards from Germany,

    Michael

    Dave,
    Do you know if Mandarin Bar in Nana has an email address. I lost the phone number of one of the ladies and wanted to see if they might be able to help me since they keep record of when they are bar fined.
