Thamrin Nine is a mixed-use development in a premium and strategic location—in the middle of Jendral Sudirman Street and M.H. Thamrin Street—near Bundaran HI, Central Jakarta.

The location of Thamrin Nine is directly connected to the Dukuh Atas MRT Station by an underground tunnel. The airport rail link from and to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport through the BNI City Station. The commuter line and a pedestrian way to Grand Indonesia are also the access.

The total area of Thamrin Nine is 470.000 sqm. It houses the tallest skyscrapers in Indonesia—the Autograph Tower and the Luminary Tower.

The Autograph Tower and the Luminary Tower are premium Grade-A office towers with retail podiums, commercial facilities, sports centers, entertainment centers, luxury hotels, and high-class business hotels.

PT Putra Gaya Wahana (PGW) is the developer of Thamrin Nine. It offers lifestyle and business in one place— Thamrin Nine.

Thamrin Nine also implements high-technology vertical transportation in the building. The owner trusted the means to PT Berca Schindler Lifts with Schindler. We are very excited to commission Schindler for Thamrin Nine’s demanding vertical transportation needs. With an expected 25,000 potential tenants in the mixed-use complex in Thamrin Nine, we require an elevator company which bring quality, reliability, technology and great safety into the mix. This is to ensure the building will provide exceptionally low waiting times, a great flow, thus bringing ease and convenience from one area to another in our massive 5,500,000 square feet building area,” Mr. Gozali explains.

“We are very confident in Schindler’s product and installation works. With a mandate to provide office tenants a vertical transfortation system with a high handling capacity and low waiting interval times, without transferring lifts, Schindler and our design team have engineered a unique mobility solution that will set a new benchmark in the market. This system will be the fastest and most advanced lifts here in Jakarta, Indonesia, the largest metropolis in Southeast Asia.”

Moreover, there is also a retail arcade or podium that connects the two towers. The lifestyle center also has various entertainment and lifestyle facilities: an amphitheater, an IMAX theater, restaurants, a bowling arena, a billiard center, and many more.

The Autograph Tower, the Tallest Building in Indonesia

The Autograph Tower is the first supertall in Jakarta and Indonesia, reaching 385 m. Alvin Gozali, the Owner of this building, is proud of this achievement. It is also the highest building on the South Equator.

Several facilities exist in the Autograph Tower: an observation tower, a sky garden, and the six-star Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The height of the Autograph Tower is 382.5 m if we count the structure from the ground floor, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). The height is 385 m from the ground.

The seismic safety of the Autograph Tower is 25% higher than the current building code. The building has a BCA Green Mark Platinum from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) because of its eco-friendly attributes that will bring optimal efficiency to the inhabitants.

The eco-friendly features include green space, vertical gardens, waste and water management, and bike parking. The design and architectural details are also to keep the indoor temperature cool—saving energy.

Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), the designer of both Autograph Tower and Luminary Tower, is a renowned architectural firm in the United States that designed the tallest and most iconic buildings in the world. Six of the 11 tallest skyscrapers in the world are the designs of KPF: the Ping-An Financial Center in Shenzhen, the Lotte World Tower in Seoul, the CTF Finance Center in Guangzhou, and the Shanghai World Financial Center in Shanghai. KPF also designed iconic buildings in New York, including Hudson Yards and One Vanderbilt.

The height of the Autograph Tower, which reaches 385 m, will surpass the Empire State Building in New York (381 m). The latter has the first Waldorf Astoria Hotel in the US, while the former will be the first one to house the hotel in Indonesia

The Luminary Tower, the Second Tallest Building in Indonesia

The Luminary Tower is the second tallest building in Indonesia, with a height of 304 m. The tallest one in Indonesia is also in Thamrin Nine, the Autograph Tower with 385 m. An observatory deck and a helipad are available on the top of the Luminary Tower.

“This is an achievement to be proud of for Jakarta, where the capital city will have a collection of super-tall skyscrapers. Moreover, the current tallest buildings in Indonesia—the Autograph Tower and the Luminary Tower—are in Thamrin Nine,” said Alvin Gozali.

Luminary Tower will have office spaces and two hotels: the Pan Pacific Hotel (a five-star hotel) and the Park Royal Hotel (a four-star hotel). Both hotels have ballrooms, swimming pools, and other facilities. There will also be the Park Royal Serviced Suites.

UOB Group directly owns the Pan Pacific Hotel in Luminary Tower. The hotel will be on the highest floor below the observatory deck, consequently earning a spectacular view of Jakarta from above.

“Both two tallest buildings in Jakarta, the Autograph Tower and the Luminary Tower in Thamrin Nine are designed by KPF. It is a specific offering from Putra Gaya Wahana as a developer to present a project from a world-renowned architectural firm to the capital city,” said Gozali.
