SQ Rés Progress Update : Foundation Work Has Begun
Product quality and timeliness are key to the success of any reputable property developer. PT Intiland Development Tbk., drawing on more than 45 years of experience, considers these two factors to be priorities for ensuring customer satisfaction. This commitment is again apparent on the site of the new 23-story residences at SQ Rés, where work continues throughout the current Covid-19 situation, with all the necessary precautions implemented for workers. Construction began on the foundation of these two residential towers in March 2020.
The current stage of work involves the installation of bore pile foundations and diaphragm walls, a.k.a. retaining walls. This process is an important stage before the main contractor commences construction of the structure in June this year.
“Our target is to complete the construction of SQ Rés in the fourth quarter of 2022 and then begin the handover. That way we can serve the needs of consumers who want comfortable housing with complete facilities in the Jakarta business center, as well as for investment purposes, “said Kundarso, head of the SQ Rés project.
Environmentally conscious construction
In tune with the emerging public awareness of the importance of environmental sustainability and energy savings, the development at South Quarter has adopted environmentally friendly principles since the very beginning. This continues at SQ Rés, where for example the building façade uses an overhang to reduce direct sunlight entering through the windows. The buildings also use a type of double-glazed glass to improve the thermal performance of the façade and cut the use of electrical energy for air conditioning needs.
“The double-glazed glass has the function of being able to reduce exposure to sunlight and noise coming into the rooms, so that the use of air conditioners and electricity becomes more efficient. With these benefits it can certainly improve the quality of life in harmony with the balance of nature and the environment,” said Kundarso.
A variety of unit types
Located in a 1.3-hectare development area, SQ Rés consists of two 21-story apartment towers with a total of 700 residential units. Various types are available. For people who want compact apartment units, the Studio Unit has an area of 30 m2. Meanwhile, 1-bedroom units have areas of 36 m2 or 45 m2, 1 bedroom + study units have an area of 60 m2, and 2-bedroom units have areas of 86 m2 or 93 m2. For consumers who want even more space and flexibility, the Dual Key unit has an area of 117 m2.
Extensive leisure facilities
As well as providing a variety of unit choices, SQ Rés also offers a range of curated facilities deisgned to meet the needs of all the family, such as a swimming pool, jogging track, gym, library, café, and children’s play area. For grocery shopping, residents can simply walk to the supermarket at SQ Dome.
SQ Rés also provides a 24-hour integrated security system for residents. Community concierge facilities such as housekeeping, laundry service, and shoes and bag maintenance are available to serve residents throughout the day.
SQ Rés is part of the South Quarter development, an integrated and modern office area of 7.9 hectares, where many multinational companies, such as Citi, General Electric, Coca Cola, Nissan, and Tupperware have their offices. It is also strategically located between the Lebak Bulus and Fatmawati MRT stations, offering convenience for residents whatever their daily routines require.
