Puri Park View is a budget residential complex in Meruya (Pesanggrahan) in West Jakarta. Built in 2012, it consists of 5 towers (A, B, C, D, E) of 24 floors, for a total of nearly 3,000 units.

I visited it in 2019 and below is my mini-review of the property:

Location:

Location of Puri Park View in Jakarta

Puri Park View is located in North Meruya, in the subdistrict of Kembangan. This is a middle class residential neighborhood with mostly low-rise houses and small streets. It has a rather important Indonesian-Chinese population, especially within apartment towers like Puri Park View, or within housing complexes like Taman Aries or Taman Kebon Jeruk.

What’s nearby:

Public Transport:
TransJakarta: None nearby
Train: None
MRT: None

There are only some mikrolets and non-AC buses passing near Puri Park View. Since this is not really convenient, you will probably need to use your own transportation (or taxi services) to get around. Beware if you own a car as the parking of Puri Park View doesn’t have enough spots to accommodate every resident.

Toll Road:
The entrance to the Jakarta-Tangerang Toll Road is about 2.5 kilometers away.

Malls:
There aren’t any malls nearby but, in 10-15 minutes, you can reach the ones in Puri Indah:

Puri Indah Mall: A large mall targeting the upper-middle class with many popular brands (fashion, sports, accessories, beauty, kids, home, etc). It has a Metro department store, a XXI cinema, a Hero supermarket, a Celebrity Fitness gym, and an F&B area.

Lippo Mall Puri: This new shopping center, near Puri Indah Mall, is more upmarket and trendy. It has Sogo and Parkson department stores, a FoodHall supermarket, fashion stores like H&M, Forever 21, Uniqlo and Zara, a XXI Cinema, and a Fitness First gym. It also has a good selection of restaurants and cafés.

Px Pavillion: Upmarket boutique mall, just opposite Lippo Mall. It has a Gold’s Gym, a Ranch Market, a bookstore and several cafés/restaurants.

Supermarkets:
The nearest supermarkets are just 1 kilometer away:
– Ranch Market in Pesanggrahan
– Food Hall in Prisma Kedoya Permai

For cheaper prices, you can also go to Hypermart and Carrefour, both in Puri Indah (3.5 kilometers away).

Food and Nightlife:
There are many warungs and canteens within walking distance to Puri Park View, including in the basement of the towers. For more sophisticated restaurants, you will need to go to Puri Indah.

Education:
There is a wide choice of educational facilities in this part of Jakarta, partly due to the presence of a large, wealthy Indonesian Chinese community. Most schools are quite expensive and Christian.

All these universities and schools are within 15 minutes from Puri Park View:

Universities: Raffles CollegeUniversitas Esa Unggul, Universitas Mercu Buana
Schools: IPEKA, Bina Bangsa, Tunas Muda, Global SevillaGlobal NusantaraBukit SionIchthus School West CampusSpringfieldNotre Dame. You also have a local high-school just next to Puri Park View.

Parking in Puri Park View

Parking in Puri Park View seems to be a big problem. I saw that the residents were desperate to find a parking spot, and therefore they often had to park their cars in a double line (or even outside the property).
