They have broken ground at The Edge, 2nd Road and Soi Diana.

Same developer as The Base and it sold out off plan in a weekend.

Units will probably be a bit smaller as Base/Edge is popular with Chinese buyers who are OK with smaller units.

Hmm was planning on maybe staying a week or so again at The Apex as The Base was completed a while ago but this puts a  total kibosh on that idea now , thanks for the update

On another forum someone who recently stayed at The Base said many/most of the other guests where Chinese.

Yes, many of the units in the Base are effectively short term condos, with many of them managed by local agents.  I've stayed there many times, booking on airb&b and checking in and out at an office next to Mike Shopping Mall where the very nice Thai girl working there speaks fluent English and Chinese.  Small units, but perfectly fine and a perfect central location, and only around $34 USD a night.  Much better than staying in a damn hotel; I hate hotels for mongering.  Having your own place is far superior.  And yes, they do cater to the Chinese market.  Let me hasten to add that these are for the most part younger Chinese traveling in couples or trios.  I stayed there in December and there was a trio of super-cute 20-something Chinese girls staying in a unit on my floor.  I rode down the elevator one evening with them all made up and dressed really chic.  They were happy to practice their English a little bit with the soiboy.  Almost turned me straight!  lol

Update:

I just got back from Thailand where I stayed in Pattaya at The Base for 10 days from late February through early March.  Construction has begun in earnest, starting at 8:00am Monday-Friday and running until dusk.  They are now driving the foundation support pillars.  I stayed in Tower B, which is the one just north of Tower A, in a lower room facing the construction.  Actually, the noise was not so great, although I would hear it waking up in the early morning hours.  In contrast, my LT companions slept soundly through the distant din...how do they do that?  I think a higher room in Tower B, especially one facing north (away from the construction) would be OK.  Not so sure about anywhere in Tower A.  The LK Residence is situated to take the brunt of the noise so would not be such a great choice now.  The Apex was mentioned earlier.  I think it would be OK if it is your go-to place to stay, but it depends on how sensitive you are to any noise at all.
