The Grand Outlet – East Jakarta is a luxury shopping mall located in Karawang in East Jakarta, Indonesia.

The mall is Indonesia’s first international luxury outlet mall, providing a unique shopping experience to visitors in a green urban space concept.

Tuan Sing Holdings, an investment holding company based in Singapore, and Mitsubishi Estate, a real estate development company based in Japan, formed a 50:50 joint venture named Karawang Outlet Mall to develop and operate the mall.

The estimated investment in the mall is approximately S$90m ($66.35m).

In May 2023, The Grand Outlet – East Jakarta won an award at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2023-2024, in the category of Leisure Architecture Indonesia.

The mall was opened to the public in December 2023.


The Grand Outlet – East Jakarta is located on a site area of 88,000m² in Karawang along the busiest motorway in Indonesia, which connects Jakarta and Bandung. This makes it visible to more than 180 million vehicles a year.

The Karawang district is located an hour’s drive from central Jakarta. It is home to several tourist attractions, sightseeing locations and hotels. The mall is also 4km away from Karawang, one of the stops along Indonesia’s first high-speed rail (HSR) from Jakarta to Bandung.

The new mall serves as a key attraction for the growing consumer class in Indonesia. The country is one of the largest economies in Southeast Asia in terms of gross domestic product (GDP), according to the World Bank. The retail sector is a major contributor to the country’s GDP.

Design and features

The design of Grand Outlet – East Jakarta focuses on creating a visually stunning and immersive environment to enhance the overall shopping experience. The mall’s main entrance canopy and pedestrian spaces are based on the Japanese komorebi concept, in which the sun’s rays are filtered through tree foliage and create shadows on the ground.

The mall’s design is based on the concept of biomimicry, which takes inspiration from natural elements. Five themed nodes were created, based on the elements of forest, bamboo, water, flowers and rice terrace, which are arranged along passages.

The nodes are named Forest Square, Green Hub, Flower Park, Bamboo Garden and Water Circle. The materials and landscape elements of the mall are also based on these themes.

The Forest Square, or main galleria, allows the visitors to relax in the seating areas amongst the lush vegetation where the canopy creates a cool environment.

The Green Hub features a flexible plaza that can be used for events. It features a large central staircase with green foliage to represent a feeling of traversing in terraced paddy fields.

The Flower Park is a green lawn with flowering plants. The design of the furniture in the area was inspired by the natural contours of flowers.

Several water features have been incorporated at the Water Circle.

Contractors involved

Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, an architecture firm based in Japan, provided the architectural design including concept development and schematic design, apart from the supervision of detailed design works carried out by local consultants.

Meinhardt, an engineering consultancy, was contracted to provide civil, structural, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services.
