KUNINGAN PLACE APARTMENT FACILITY
Kuningan Place apartment facilities lie on a separate floors inside the tower. It is pretty hard for non-residents to find these facilities.
Swimming pool in Kuningan Place is located on the ground floor, adjacent to main lobby. This pool has a form of “T” shape and occupied a large area in a courtyard. Even though it is located next to lobby, residents still can get their privacy, because there is a concrete wall beside the pool that blocked the vision of visitors from lobby.
The water inside the pool is rather cold. Sun exposure is not really affecting the water temperature. There are some benches around the pool for residents to sit and relax.
Kuningan Place’s gym is located on the first floor, next to aerobic room. From here, you can see swiming pool below. Gym equipment provided here is surprisingly very complete. You can find many barbels, tread mill, lat pull-down gym machine and other equipments here.
The room is rather small, compare to other gym I have visited. Many amount of equipment inside the gym make this room looks even narrower. However, the gym room doesn’t have door, so the air sirculation is very good inside.
Located next to the gym, there is also an aerobic room for residents who love to workout in motion. This room has a large space which can accomodate many residents. Inside the room, there is also a large mirror to help residents and instructor for doing aerobic.
When we don’t have enough time to do our own washing, the presence of laundry can be very helpful. Luckily, there is a laundry room below ground floor.
There are three types of room leased by Kuningan Kuningan Place apartment, 1BR, 2BR and 3BR. Most of units in Kuningan Place are leased in fully furnished condition, so residents don’t have to bring their own furniture after moving. The amenities in 1BR unit includes 1 bathroom, kitchen, dining set, AC, hot water tap, access card, refrigerator and television. For 2BR and 3BR, the amenities include AC, hot water tap, dining set, 1 bathroom (for 2BR), 2 bathroom ( for 3BR), access card, kitchen, refrigerator, washing machine and television. Apartment official also equipped those three units with internet and cable TV.
The unit sizes in Kuningan Place are 39 sqm for 1BR, 72 sqm for 2BR and 200 sqm for 3BR. For the rent charge, 3BR unit is the most expensive in price, Rp 27.000.000 ($ 1.925) per month, followed by 2BR unit, Rp 10.850.000 ($ 774) per month and 1BR unit, Rp 7.500.000 ($ 535).
One week ago, I had an opportunity to visit 2BR unit in Infinia tower, Kuningan Place. This unit sit on the 7th floor and located on the back of apartment. The scenery provided here is not really amazing. You could see many empty spaces filled with bushes and wild grass below. Sometimes you could also see pickup truck passing by, since the surrounding area are still under development. The scenery below are dominated by human settlement, whereas downtown skyscrapers are far behind.
The scenery, nevertheless looks unappealing, the unit itself is very comfy and spacious. The presence of large glass in living room and bedroom also reinforce the impression of “broadness” and increased brightness level inside.
2BR unit in Kuningan Place has a wide living room complete with couch, television and glass table. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoying your freetime. On the back of living room, there is a kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, drawer and wastafel. There are two bedroom in total, a double bed for you and your spouse, and a single bed for your kids. However, the balcony inside the unit is very narrow. Because of the limited space, you cannot drying many clothes in balcony. The balcony is featured with metal trellis, so you don’t have a broad vision outside balcony.
ENVIRONMENT AROUND THE APARTMENT:
As explained above, the area surrounding Kuningan Place apartment are still under development, so the scenery are dominated by greeny empty space and human settlement. Sometimes you could see many pickup truck passing by, but the vehicle noise is not too audible from unit.
Kuningan Place was already occupied with some residents, so it is not quite anymore. However, the condition inside the tower and lobby is not overcrowded and still conducive to a new comer. When I was there, I don’t see any expats living here. Most of residents were locals and Chinese-Indonesian.
I didn’t experience bad traffic when I was there. I went out at 01:00 pm and leave the apartment at 05:00 pm. The traffic became terrible after work hour, since there were many offices located close to apartment.

Review: Kuningan Place
For an employee who works around Kuningan Business District, living in Kuningan Place is definitely a good choice. This apartment is surrounded by many offices and to get there, residents only need to drive in less than 30 minutes. The other advantages of living in Kuningan Place is the unit their provided which is very comfy and spacious.
If you want to live in a residence that provides an amazing scenery, here is not the best place. The only thing you’ll find around your apartment is a large open space with human settlement. There are not many skyscrapers nearby.
You also have to put more effort on finding a good restaurant and entertainment facilities, since none of those can be found in a radius of 1 km from apartment, except Epiwalk (650 meters) and Plaza Festival Kuningan (1 km).
