Toko Tio Tek Hong (Indonesian for "Tio Tek Hong's Shop") is a colonial building in Jakarta. The building is located at the junction where the river Ciliwung flows into the canal that channels flood water to Ancol Marina. It has been renovated recently.
The building was commissioned by Tio Tek Hong, a prominent general merchant and leading postcard publisher. Tio came from a prominent family of merchant-mandarins that included his cousin, Tio Tek Ho, the fourth and penultimate Majoor der Chinezen, or Chinese headman, of Batavia.
The shop was opened in Jalan Pasar Baru No. 93 in 1902, in the Weltevreden area, near Passer Baroe. His business prospered and during the 1910s, he acquired adjoining land and twice rebuilt his store to become the building which exist now. However, he was also borrowing money to make some of his property investment and was hit hard by the Great Depression of the early 1930s. His business survived until perhaps the early 1940s, but on a much reduced scale.
