Pacific Place
Malls and places to shop in Jakarta

The Pacific Place Jakarta is an international shopping mall located in in the Sudirman Central Business District, Jakarta Selatan, Indonesia. The building is divided into 3 different sections: the six-floor Pacific Place mall, the One Pacific Place office center, and the three tower The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place hotel.

The project was started by the Dua Mutiara group, and its original design was a triangular building, designed like other buildings around the location. However, the management changed the design, as the head of the project feared of a Chinese prophecy that proved a 45 degree building would mean bad luck. The mall opened in November 2007.

The Pacific Place Jakarta consists of six floors and included several notable tenants, such as Blitzmegaplex, Kidzania Jakarta, Kem Chicks, and the Metro Group, which also opened a Metro Department Store in Pondok Indah Mall. Previously, the mall was somewhat reminiscent of that of a dead mall, as a result of a lack of public advertisement.

However, the mall became quickly famous in December 2007, when Kidzania Jakarta was opened. The availability of Blitzmegaplex also garnered success of the mall itself. As a result of the decision of the mall's operators, Metro changed its Department Store tenant's name to M Pacific Place. Lately, other well-known tenants opened outlets, including Best Denki and Panorama Tours. The mall is now widely-acclaimed for hosting special events.

The One Pacific Place building is the only office block of the building, located north of the building. The Ritz Carlton Hotel towers is the only hotel located in the building. Because of space limitations, The Ritz Carlton Pacific Place only owns 62 rooms. The basement level includes Kem Chicks supermarket, restaurants, and ATMs. There is also a bridge to the hotel and the Jakarta Stock Exchange.
