Sudirman Suites Apartment is an upscale Residential Tower on 21 floors for a total of 400 units. Completed in 2018 by the Pikko Group, it is part of an upcoming complex on Jalan Bendungan Hilir that will also include a shopping center, a hotel, restaurants, and offices.
Even though it has a fantastic location right on Jalan Sudirman (and only 100 meters from an MRT station), it is moderately-priced compared to the other nearby condominiums.
Sudirman Suites is located in the district of Tanah Abang, at the corner of Jalan Sudirman and Jalan Bendungan Hilir. That’s right in the heart of the business district, just halfway between Plaza Indonesian and Plaza Senayan, and within 10 minutes from both Mega Kuningan and SCBD. It’s hard to find a better location if you are a young executive with no kids who enjoys eating out, partying, and shopping.
How does it look like around the apartment?
There is a large sidewalk just outside Sudirman Suites on Jalan Sudirman that can be quite pleasant to walk in the evening.
By car, with normal traffic conditions, how far is it from:
Public transportation and access to highways:
Sudirman Suites has one of the best locations in Jakarta. It is walking distance to many useful Transjakarta bus lines, and more importantly, walking distance from the MRT. This means you can go rapidly and cheaply to almost anywhere in the city.
These are the important landmarks nearby:
There are quite many malls within 10-15 minutes from Sudirman Suites. The nearest one, Citywalk Sudirman (2 kilometers) is a boutique mall with many affordable restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and a bar.
You can also go to Grand Indonesia (15 minutes by car), one of the largest upscale malls in Jakarta. It has pretty much anything you may need, including 2 supermarkets, a huge cinema and 3 department stores (Sogo, Seibu, Central). It is also a popular hangout spot with plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. Next to Grand Indonesia, Plaza Indonesia is another option, more luxurious.
fX Sudirman is also near. It is a lifestyle mall with mostly middle-range restaurants and cafés. It has a cinema, a gym, salons, spas, banks, and a few retail shops. It is convenient but maybe not as interesting as a real mall.
If that’s not enough, check Plaza Senayan, Senayan City and Lotte Avenue.
When I was staying in Sudirman Suites, I was often going to Pasar Benhil, a traditional market just across the street. You can buy cheap fruits and vegetables, poultry, rice, etc. The hygiene standards are pretty low, though, so it’s not for everybody.
For a proper supermarket, you should go to Papaya in Citywalk or to Foodhall in Grand Indonesia (or Plaza Indonesia).
There are some restaurants on the ground floor of Sudirman Suites. You can also walk on Jalan Benhil and you will find several options (street food stalls, warungs, Burger King, etc).
Bars and Nightlife :
Nearby nightlife areas are near Grand Indonesia (Skye, Cloud), in Mega Kuningan (Basque, Loewy) or in SCBD (Fairgrounds).
This is not the best area if you have kids or if you are a student. There are not many universities or International schools. Here a few within a reasonable distance :
Hospitals and clinics :
None nearby. The closest ones would be the Monas or Bung Karno. On Sunday mornings, there is a car-free day on Jalan Sudirman. It’s a good opportunity to do some sports outside.
Plenty of offices nearby: Sahid Sudirman Center, MidPlaza, Sampoerna Strategic Square, IFC, World Trade Center, Indofood, etc.
Who is the developer?
The developer, PT Pikko Land Development is a large company that owns a variety of apartment complexes ranging from low-end to upscale ones. The ones I’ve reviewed so far are Maple Park, Sudirman Park, Signature Park Grande, Hampton’s Park and Botanica. They were also involved in Thamrin City and Simprug Indah.
I have mixed feelings about this developer. Some of their projects, like Botanica and Signature Park Grande seem to be managed better than the others. In Maple Park, Hampton’s or Sudirman Park, I noticed a lot of maintenance issues for instance.
Overall, the reputation of this developer is average.
Who is the architect?
The design was done by PTI Architects (PT. Prada Tata Internasional), a member of the Peddle Thorp International Group. Even though it is part of an international network, it remains a local firm and it is unclear whether any Australian architects were involved in Sudirman Suites.
That said, PTI is one of the leading architectural consultants in Indonesia. They’ve worked on major projects such as Kuningan City, Gandaria City, Residence 8, Essence Darmawangsa and Bellagio Mansion.
Who is the contractor?
The contractor was Wika Gedung, a subsidiary of the government-owned company Wijaya Karya.
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”.
The apartments’ size is approximately the following:
