The client engaged the design team to provide planning services for a new vibrant mixed-use development in the heart of downtown Jakarta, Indonesia.
superkül, in partnership with Forrec, developed a study for a 10.37 acre site, adjacent to one already under construction. Once completed, the two phases would function as one contiguous development with a proposed program that included hotel, residential commercial office and retail spaces. Key features of the study included creating an iconic and desirable urban destination complex for downtown Jakarta with engaging spaces for people of all ages and a balanced mix of public/private and indoor/outdoor spaces that will connect it to the larger urban community and its surrounding context.
Planning challenges involved the provision for pedestrian friendly and comfortable environments, environmentally sustainable and scalable, that could be implemented in phases.
