Rental rates will be increased by 5% per annum for short-term contracts, which account for 53% of the total lease area. The newly opened projects are expected to have higher occupancy (Central Plaza Chaengwattana from 93% to 95% at the end of this year, Central Festival Pattaya from 89% to 95%, Central Plaza Chonburi from 83% to 92% and Chaengwattana office from 20% to 50%).
