Sky Terrace Lagoon Condo is a midrange residential complex that consists of 3 towers of 21 floors (Uluwatu, Pecatu and Sanur), for a total of 525 units.
I stayed there for a couple of days in 2019, and this is my review of it:
Sky Terrace was built by PT Fajar Surya Perkasa, the owner of the mixed-used development Daan Mogot Baru. The latter consists of a housing complex (perumahan), offices, Sky Terrace, and Daan Mogot Mall.
PT Fajar Surya Perkasa is a subsidiary of PT Fajar Surya Wisesa, a large paper company owned by various shareholders (including Thai, Singaporean, and Indonesian ones). Some famous figures related to this company are Winarko Sulistyo and Airlangga Hartarto (Minister under Jokowi).
My opinion is that this developer is not reputed and you should proceed with caution if you choose to buy an apartment from them.
Note: I read on some forums that the owner of Daan Mogot Baru was the Djarum group, but I didn’t see any mention of it on their website.
The architect firm was Indomegah, a company behind some budget and midrange properties such as Kebagusan City in South Jakarta, Seasons City in West Jakarta, or Green Apartment in Lebak Bulus.
The contractor was PT Catur Bangun Mandiri, a large company that has built many budget apartment complexes (like Gading Icon, Pasar Baru Mansion, Bintaro Park View, City Garden, etc).

Sky Terrace Lagoon Condo is located in West Jakarta, in the district of Kalideres This is a rather local neighborhood, mostly residential and low-rise

– The price of land is still affordable
The surroundings of Sky Terrace illustrate this transformation: Walking distance, you have an upmarket housing complex, a renovated mall, modern streets with sidewalks, popular cafés and restaurants.

You can see that the occupation of Sky Terrace is very low as there are almost no cars in the parking area:
Swimming Pool and Garden Areas:
The garden and the lagoon pool are the best parts of Sky Terrace:
I considered several factors such as the design, the quality of the finishes (paint, attention to details, etc), and the materials used (tiles, pipes, concrete, lights, doors, windows, furniture, artwork, etc). I’ve ranked each area of the property from 1 – worst – to 10 – best.
Building: 6/10 – It looks like a massive concrete block
Gardens: 7/10 – Spacious but the maintenance could be improved
Swimming pool: 7.5/10 – The best part of the residence
Standard furnished apartment: 6/10
Overall building quality: 6.8/10:
A typical midrange complex
The property is still rather new but I could spot some defects, for instance cracks in the wall in the corridor:
I also thought that the maintenance of the garden could be improved.
Overall maintenance: 6.5/10
The cleanliness was satisfactory
