SSI Tower

SSI Tower
Jakarta, Indonesia

PT TCP Internusa (Jakarta)

Designed for PT TCP Internusa in Jakarta, Handel Architects’ new 40-story, LEED Gold, office tower in Jakarta will include over 1 million sq. ft. (97,000 square meters) of class-A office space, atop a 3-story retail podium. When complete, the tower will stand almost 700 feet (212 meters) tall. Handel Architects’ scope also includes new ballroom and meeting facilities for the adjacent Gran Melia Hotel.

The project is located along HR Rasuna Said, one of the major roadways in the Central Business District, of Jakarta. The site is situated adjacent to the Embassies of Brittan, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore, and India. The design for the tower took cues from the Gran Melia Hotel, with a swooping roofline to match the hotel’s own. The tower’s broad face maximizes views towards the central business district, while providing the first in a series of vertical planes that divide the building. Horizontal and vertical fins have been arranged to maximize shading and to reduce cooling loads for the building. Horizontal fins along the Rasuna Said street facade are interrupted only at the top of the tower to frame an open green space.

Parking will be on six levels below grade. The SSI Tower is planned to open in 2017.
