Ocean One is a skyscraper proposed for construction at Jomtien Beach, close to Pattaya, Thailand. The planned structure will be 367 metres (1,204 ft) tall, with 91 floors and 587 rooms. The proposed building site is 250 metres from one of Asia's most popular beaches. When completed, Ocean One will be the tallest building in Thailand. It is planned mainly for residential use, but will also have a conference centre. Using the traditional (Thai ไร่) unit of area, the rai, the area of the property is 12 rai.,[1] and is equivalent to 19,200 square metres (207,000 sq ft).

The architects are Woods Bagot, who designed Q1 on Australia's Gold Coast which used to be the tallest residential building in the world. Construction has not yet begun, but is expected to take approximately four years from commencement to completion. There are important wind engineering and earthquake engineering problems that must be addressed by structural engineers (current contractor is Connell Wagner) prior to proceeding with construction. The construction contract is planned to be awarded to K-TECH.[1]

The building is planned to include the latest in luxury and technology with a special focus on environmental aspects. Other features are the high security, a 24-hour medical clinic and 13 high speed lifts with a maximum waiting time of just 18 seconds. The entire 9th floor will be devoted to recreation with swimming pools, saunas, spas, gymnasiums and a running track. The building will have a two-level shopping plaza at the rear.[1]
