Apartemen Permata Hijau

by | May 15, 2020

Apartemen Permata Hijau is a luxury residential complex with 3 towers of 11 floors each for a total of 182 units. Completed in 1995, it was built in a colonial architectural style which is rather iconic and impressive when seen from outside.

I visited it with an agent, and this is my full review of it:


Neighborhood and Transportation

In which neighborhood of Jakarta is Apartemen Permata Hijau located?

Location of Apartemen Permata Hijau

Apartemen Permata Hijau is located in the district of Kebayoran Lama, but it is more accurate to include it in the neighborhood of Permata Hijau. The latter is an affluent residential area, popular with both expats and Indonesians due to its proximity to Senayan. It has a mix of low-rise housing, mainly large villas, and high-rise apartments (ITC, Bellezza, Somerset, Providence Park, Permata Hijau Residence, etc).

How does it look like around the apartment?

Jalan Arteri Permata Hijau has a lot of traffic and it is polluted, but the smaller streets in the neighborhood are more pleasant and quiet.

Landmarks Nearby

These are the important landmarks nearby:

Walking distance, you can go to ITC Permata Hijau, a middle-class mall that has cheap unbranded shops and a food court. Just across the street, the Bellezza Shopping Arcade is more upmarket and features some random shops and offices. Not large enough for real shopping, but you can find decent restaurants, a karaoke, a fitness center, and a supermarket.

For more options, you should go by car to Senayan City, Plaza Senayan, or Gandaria City, about 10-15 minutes away.

The nearest supermarket is Carrefour in ITC Permata Hijau. It is large and affordable, but the quality of fresh products can be disappointing. For this reason, I recommend going to FoodHall in Bellezza Mall or to Hero Permata Hijau instead (both about 500 meters away from the residence).

The nearest restaurants are in ITC Permata Hijau (cheap) and in Bellezza Mall (average).

Bars and Nightlife:
The nearest nightlife bars, clubs and cafés are in Senopati, Senayan and SCBD.

Medika Permata Hijau
RS Pusat Pertamina
RS Gandaria

If you have a serious condition, I recommend going a bit further to Pondok Indah Hospital or to Siloam Semanggi.

The nearest real park is Gelora Bung Karno City Park (15-20 minutes away)

Building and Architecture

Who is the developer?
The developer of Apartemen Permata Hijau was PT Masato Prima, a joint venture between:
Lippo Group: An enormous conglomerate, owner of many properties including Kemang Village
– PT Metropolitan Linggajaya: Owner of Kristal Hotel in Pondok Indah
– PT Aditya Toa Development: Owner (or part-owner) of Plaza Indonesia, Fairmont Hotel, Hermitage Hotel, and possibly Botanica Apartments. This company is a joint venture between Hashim Djojohadikusumo (brother of Prabowo Subianto), Kajima Corporation, and Herry Wijaya

Who is the architect?
I didn’t find this information.

Who is the contractor?
I didn’t find this information.

What is the situation with the land certificate?
The developer has a Hak Guna Bangunan Murni, which means the property was built on its own land. As an apartment owner, you get a “Strata Title di atas HGB Murni”.
