“Take care of the luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves,” are the wise words of American author and poet Dorothy Parker. Every era has its glamour and every decade indulged in its own decadence, for most people today wifi might be more important than high tea… BUT does this show a lack of culture or a lack of style? However judgmental or high society you may be – luxury living provides comfort and convenience – after those are taken care of the necessities are most definitely already taken care of – no matter which era or city you are living in: Luxury, like fashion, seems to evolve each decade.

In Menteng and Kota Tua, Jakartans will soon see something in significance to their own historic architecture – something that is unique to the city and will be in high demand. Le Parc Residence, a development consisting of four residential buildings: The Mansion, The Townhomes and The Terraces (phase 1), and The Skylofts (phase 2) with its neighboring facilities. As the first low-rise development concept, the possibilities for a low density, tranquil, and tropical landscape will offer a refreshing, but still conservative proposition.
