Iconsiam, stylized as ICONSIAM, is a mixed-use development on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand. It includes a large shopping mall, which opened to the public on 10 November 2018, as well as hotels and residences. The 54 billion baht (US$1.5 billion) project is being developed as a joint venture by Siam Piwat group, a Thai high-end shopping mall developer, MQDC Magnolia Quality Development, and Charoen Pokphand Group. The complex will include two of the tallest buildings in Bangkok upon completion: the 52-storey Mandarin Oriental Residences and the 70-floor Magnolias Waterfront Residences.

As ICONSIAM is one kilometer from the nearest BTS Skytrain station, a monorail, to be completed in 2020, will connect the complex to Krung Thonburi station on the BTS Skytrain Silom Line. ICONSIAM has contributed about two billion baht to the rail project in exchange for the right to advertise on BTS carriages for the next 20 years.
ICONSIAM is working with the Urban Design and Development Centre (UDDC) at Chulalongkorn University, the Marine Department of the Transport Ministry, and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to upgrade four river piers—Sathorn, Ratchawong, Tha Dindaeng, and Ratcha Nevy—by June 2019.
Iconsiam reportedly spent one billion baht on its grand opening.
