Alma Link Building

History of Alma Link Building
Herbert and Alma Link got married in 1939 on the eve of World War II. Herbert Link, born in Thailand in 1917, of German decent, had been in Thailand for the last seven years as a manager of his father’s firm, B. Grimm & Co., R.O.P.

Alma, a British citizen, was the head nurse of the Bangkok Nursing Home, at that time the foremost hospital for foreigners in Thailand.

Not too long after getting married, Alma, who had already became very active in social work outside her profession and helped her husband entertaining his many foreign guests and Thai friends, persuaded her husband to buy a nice house in the residential Ploenchit on Soi Chidlom 25.

At that time, the soi had been built between two klongs and was very quiet and shady. Many well known Thai families like Panyarachun and Thavisin owned properties there next to the Nai Lert Park and British Embassy.

Around 1970, the Central Group decided to build their new flagship department store on the corner of Ploenchit and Chidlom, thus starting a strong commercial development that would continue into the new millennium. After all neighbours had sold their properties to make place to highrise buildings and combining with the disappearance of the two klongs had made Soi Chidlom much more difficult to live as a single family house, which had long become an expanded road instead of a narrow Soi.

Thus, in 1989, Herbert and Alma Link decided to build the Alma Link office building on their property.
The building was graciously opened by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn on 28 October 1991.

Due to its location, the first class construction by Obayashi Corp of Japan, first class building equipment like Carrier Air Conditioners and Otis elevators, the international design by American architect Robert G. Boughey and the favorable economic climate the building enjoyed full occupancy at day one.

Today, the Alma Link Building houses many renowned national and international firms, some of whom have been there since the opening.
