"This location is considered a new business district with a huge room to grow in the future. The building's design is inspired by the combination between modernity and art, delivering the uniqueness of Thainess. It is a great honour that a major part of this building was contributed by Thailand's two greatest architectures - Nontiwat Chanthanapalin, the national artist (painting) and Praiwal Dakliang, a renowned realistic artist. Environmentally, the tower is also certified by the international standard on environment of LEED GOLD, reaffirming its environmentally- friendly office building position.

By car, it can be reached within one kilometre from Yommarat tollgate and surrounded by other tollagtes, including Uruphong, Petchaburi, Victory Monument. The commute will be a lot easier in the future as MRT orange line, a zero distance to the premise, will be open in the next few years.

Spring Tower is owned by Aspiration One Co., Ltd. , a joint venture among three parties - Thailand's leading contractor Sangfah Construction, the SET-listed property developer Sena Development Pcl and the country's leading financial institute AIRA Capital Plc.
