Abandoned giant gate on Pahonyothin

Abandoned giant gate on Pahonyothin

On Pahonyothin road, eastern side, between km 43 and 44
in Pathum Thani province
14.089951,100.618758 = 14°05'23.8"N 100°37'07.5"E

Aerial picture by a friend's drone (the globular building of Wat Phra Dhammakaya is visible on the right on the horizon):

The benefits of driving with your own car (in this case my friend's car): you can stop wherever you want. I have driven past on bus and noticed this gate many times, but can't stop! The road that leads through the gate has a sign "private road", but was open.

Southern side of the gate has empty space on ground level (used as shelter for mocy taxi station):

Northern side has entrance and stairways leading to two floors of usable space, with a bridge to southern side that has two floors of usable space as well, judging by windows. The door was closed, but not locked, however when I wanted to get in mocy drivers from other side beckoned me not to get in, so I don't know what's inside.

Neither did I see any sign that would say where this gate is leading. If you follow that road for 2.5 km, you end at a side entrance of Wat Phra Dhammakaya วัดพระธรรมกาย (but if it belonged to them, it wouldn't be abandoned). However 1.3 km inward is Nop Phadol Craftsmanship Shop Garage ร้านนพดลการช่าง which looks similar in style and seems partially abandoned.
