MahaNakhon is a luxury mixed-use skyscraper located in the Silom/Sathorn central business district of Bangkok, Thailand. Designed to fit into the Thai landscape with a unique pixelated façade, it features the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain walled square tower with a cuboid-surfaced spiral cut into the side of the building. The building has been recognised as the tallest building in Thailand at 314.2 m (1,031 ft).

In 2012, Bouygues-Thai Ltd. was awarded the scope of Design & Build for Structural Works for the main Tower, and build only for MahaNakhon CUBE.
The Total Gross Floor Area (GFA) of the development is around 150,000 sqm. The tenure is freehold.
