Let’s Discover! The true occupancy rate of Phnom Penh's high-end condominiums is revealed.

Summary:The lighting rate is an important data that you can refer to when choosing to live or invest!

In the past two years, affected by the epidemic, Cambodia's real estate market has been relatively calm, and there are still many people who want to invest in real estate. However, everyone seems to focus on prices such as land prices, house prices, and rents, but ignore the one that is closely related to living and investment which is an important data such as living rate, lighting rate!

In Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, the condominium projects which are completed as following:

926 buildings with 5-9 storeys

452 buildings with 10-19 storeys

120 buildings with 20-29 storeys

65 buildings with 30-39 storeys

And 40 high-rise buildings with more than 40 storeys

Among them, there are many condominium projects, some people just only invest and some live in directly, but how many people actually live in those buildings?

To this end, the Compass Vision team conducted a lighting rate evaluation for the condominium project in Phnom Penh.

Special reminder: lighting rate ≠ occupancy rate, this sample selected representative apartment projects with delivery time between 1-5 years ago, covering major districts in Phnom Penh such as BKK District, Chamkarmon District, Makara District, and Mean Chey District , the survey time is the key time period from 19:00 to 21:00 when people return home, which can reflect the living conditions of Phnom Penh apartments to a certain extent.

The following is the survey on the lighting rate of this Phnom Penh Condominium project, with a full score of five stars, please check (names won't listed in order)

Detective description: From 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the owners of R&F City condominium went home one after another, or because the project delivery time was still short, the overall lighting of the community was not good.

Survey description: The project is located next to the Bassac River. It has been delivered for 5 years already. Various types of bottom businesses are mature, daily life is convenient, there are many occupants, and the overall lighting condition is good. In terms of architectural style, it is relatively modern, and the security is also very responsible. However, during the morning and evening peak hours, the main road in front of the project is more congested.


Prince Central Plaza, Sky Line, Baoli Mansion, Sky Villa and other apartment projects in developed areas have more light opening. The Peak and The Bridge are well-known and popular, but due to their large size, the lights are actually on. It is not as good as imagined; the new projects on both sides of Hun Sen Avenue are still under construction and the lighting on rate is relatively low.

From this point of view, whether the basic facilities are mature is a major factor affecting the occupancy rate of the project, so everyone should focus on investigating when investing in real estate.

In addition, please note that due to the influence of objective factors such as home delivery time and owner's departure, this survey was assessed through night visits and visual inspections and may have Inconsistencies with actual data that are just reference document.
