Lining up Jakarta's skyscrapers. I took similar picture before with my Leica. This time, I tried it with my E-500 when the setting is blue, unlike previously in magenta. I'm also trying the 'golden rule' where the most prominent object is slightly off the center. Well, it's obvious: the Wisma 46, my favourite building, by Zeidler Partnership.
- Menara Batavia, an office tower with its distinctive dome roof which glows at night as shown here.
- Shangri-La Residences, an exclusive residential apartments adjacent to the Shangri-La Hotel, which is available for sale.
- Mayfair Marriott Apartments, a new apartment-styled hotel under Marriott's aggressively expanded service apartment style chain.
- Da Vinci Tower. This is a case of you either love it or loathe it. For contemporary architects, this is a disgrace: building an imitation of classic building in a skyscrapers genre in the 21st century!. My fellow architecture student once was given a FAIL when he designed such thing.
- CityLofts. An exciting new concept for modern loft living in Jakarta where each unit is Loft (double storey) with office space below and living space above.
- Ritz Carlton Pacific Place, one of Jakarta's most luxurious and exclusive hotel with only 62 rooms, where the smallest is 75m2, a suite for typical hotels already.
- Wisma 46
- Shangri-La Hotel
- Economy and social gap here. Not so nice buying nice apartment such as Ritz Carlton while most of the people here are still living in poverty and unemployment rate is high. - rwangsa
- Actually, you are quite wrong here. Most of the population in this area are living on a gold mine. Do you know how expensive the land rate / m2 here?
