In which neighborhood of Jakarta is the complex located?
Casablanca Mansion is in Tebet, a middle-class, mostly residential neighborhood. It has become more upmarket recently, especially since the mall Kota Kasablanka was built. It has also benefited from the completion of the Casablanca flyover, which makes it easier to reach Central Jakarta (via Tanah Abang).
How does it look like around the apartments?
The area around Casablanca Mansion is not particularly nice. It is just in front of an important intersection with a flyover and a U-turn. Along the large roads, there are not many interesting shops.
What are the important landmarks nearby?
Nearby, there are a few landmarks you can go to:
Kota Kasablanka is the nearest mall and you can go there by foot in 5 minutes (or 10 minutes by car). It is popular and busy, especially on weekends. It targets the middle to upper-class, with a good selection of shops, restaurants and services. The anchor tenants are Sogo, Carrefour, XXI, H&M, Informa, Ace Hardware and Electronic Solution.
You have several other shopping centers on Jalan Prof. Dr. Satrio, for instance, Lotte Avenue, Kuningan City, Ambassador and ITC Kuningan. You need about 15 minutes to reach them.
Carrefour in Kota Kasablanka.
There are a few warungs walking distance. For more choice, you’ll need to go to Kota Kasablanka.

The Central Business District starts in Jalan Rasuna Said, about 10 minutes away. Mega Kuningan is 20 minutes away. Sudirman is 25 minutes away. It is not an ideal central position, but still within a reasonable distance.
