Callia Apartment is one of the apartments, along with Tifolia Apartments, within the Pulomas Park Center. This 32 floors high tower is built in 2015 bu the group Duta Anggada. This apartment is ideal for small, low-to-middle income families as it has a relatively affordable price considering the strategic location and ever-developing infrastructure within the area. If you cross the Sunter River right in front of the Callia Apartment, you can easily go to the neighborhood of Kelapa Gading. This is one of the richest areas in Jakarta. There, you find almost every sort of entertainment and store which provided day-to-day needs such as shopping malls, supermarkets, clinics, and so on.
Callia Apartment's comfort and convenience
In accordance with its budget-friendly price, it is thus understandable why there are not so many facilities offered within the compound. Callia Apartment has only one swimming pool, however, you can find another one in the Tifolia Apartment. The swimming pool itself is surrounded by a mini-garden, however, it is located nearby the parking lot so it might not be as relaxing as there will be vehicles sound from time to time.
On the other hand, I considered the convenience of the building quite satisfactory. Design-wise, the design of the building from the outside is quite modern and sleek, however when you step into the corridors of each floor, a little of re-painting might be handy as the walls may look a bit dirty. The elevators are functioning well and the lobby consists of only a security desk. Moreover, the maintenance and the cleanliness of the overall building ar fairly well as there are no litters scattered around or any hygiene issue. Lastly, the security is also reasonably good as you can find 24/7 guards at the main gate and entrance of the tower, including a CCTV near the entrance and lift area as well as a card-access system that only allows card-holder to be able to enter the apartment.
Callia Apartment's facilities
Other than a small swimming pool and a garden in the Callia Apartment, there are no other facilities provided for the residents such as the gym, playground area, or meeting rooms. Unfortunately, this apartment also does not have that much of a parking lot so it might be hard for those residents to park their vehicles especially after working hours. However, if you are looking for a gym, entertainment, and other utility stores, you can still easily find them as this area is surrounded by shopping malls, supermarkets, and other day-to-day stores.
Pulo Gadung is a subdistrict of East Jakarta. Although east Jakarta is not of the hotspots in Jakarta, his area certainly has its advantage points such as shopping malls, universities and few bars to hang out at during the weekends. However, most of them are not within the Pulo Gadug area, so you need to drive for minutes to reach Kelapa Gading to find those facilities.
Shopping options might not be one of the easiest things to do in Pulo Gadung, but with 5 to 10 minutes' drive, you can reach the more crowded part of east Jakarta, Kelapa Gading. One of the trending shopping mall in Kelapa Gading is the Mall Kelapa Gading. It is one of the largest malls in Indonesia with 600 stores. Mall Kelapa Gading is arguably a very complete and rather upmarket, consisting of IMAX cinema, supermarkets, and several popular fashion brands like Uniqlo. Muji, Zara, Pull & Bear, and many more.
Restaurant and Bars:
If you are looking for a sophisticated restaurant, you can visit the Bella Terra district filled with a wide range of restaurants with great menus. One of our favorite restaurants there is Onakabe, a yakiniku and shabu-shabu restaurant where you can choose your own packs of beef and cook it based on your likings.
After a long day at work, Kelapa Gading has several choices of bars, pubs, and nightclubs that you can find. For an easygoing haunt, you can visit District Bar and Resto that serves great cocktails, beer, and wine, in addition to plus comfort fare in cozy digs and live music.
Pulo Gadung is completed with several public transportations such as Transjakarta and LRT. Currently, LRT in Pulomas station only goes between Velodrome and Pegangsaan Dua. However, in the future, this line will be extended to reach Kota as well as Dukuh Atas.
