The Pondok Indah Mall, or referred to by Jakartans by its acronym: "PIM" complex: is actually three large malls, the older 3-storey PIM1 and the newer 5-storey PIM2, interconnected via a two elevated multi-storey pedestrian walkways (Skywalk North and Skywalk South) which also are tenanted by specialty shops. PM 3, which is now under construction, is connected with other two by underpass. In January 2017, Forbes recognized Pondok Indah Mall as one of the top five shopping malls in Jakarta.[2]

In addition, PIM houses two cinema complexes on each building, both malls connected externally via walkway and an open-air water theme park was located near PIM 1, right behind Street Gallery. Unlike PIM 1, PIM 2 more focused on upper class aficionados. There are three office towers, and another one is now under construction, which is expected to be completed by 2020.[3][4] InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah Hotel & Residences comprises approximately 300 hotel rooms and 180 serviced residences, which also adjoins the Pondok Indah Mall 2.[5] Along with malls, office buildings and hotel the complex is termed as Pondonk Indah Town Center.

The architectural style was understated elegant conventional mall, with flooring continually updated until its present condition of polished Indonesian marble and granite. The architecture roughly imitated Dutch colonial large-scale warehouses with extensive steel-truss interpretation of Dutch structural timber-work for an innovative illuminating central skylight (double-glazed for minimising heat transfer) and featured three airy floors of shopping with a narrow open-floor gallery (made safe via decorative fencing). The exterior featured aluminium cladding for minimal maintenance in the harsh tropical climate.

Pondok Indah Mall 1Edit

PIM 1 was completed in 1991 in the affluent suburb of Pondok Indah (Beautiful Village) in leafy Jakarta Selatan (South Jakarta). Originally the site was a random mixture of open fields, slums, middle-class dwellings and traditional street-stall kiosks and eateries. It was a hated eyesore which generated vast amounts of litter, untreated storm water and traffic congestion. The affluent residents particularly disliked the lack of comfortable shopping facilities and the entrance to their leafy suburb "spoilt" by this unsightly, chaotic mess.

Pondok Indah Mall 2Edit

PIM2 was first advertised as an ambitious huge amalgamation of residential and hotel-apartment tower complex (one tower for each), office space and commercial hub. However, due to the 1997 Asian financial crisis, funds were unavailable to proceed. After a change of ownership, the expansion was finally realized in 2004 with the opening of Mall 2.

Street GalleryEdit

PIM's new extension, Street Gallery opened in 2013. It is located south of PIM1 side. It mainly consists of food and beverages tenants.

Pondok Indah Mall 3Edit

Pondok Indah Mall 3 is ready to be developed in the second half of 2016, after the success of closing the roof on Pondok Indah Residences in Jakarta. It will be a new shopping center designed with a leasable area of over 55,000 square metres.[6]
