“This large-scale development project will involve the construction of a 50-story office building, occupying 16,000 square meters in the heart of Jakarta’s central business district,” PT Windas Development, which consists of Japan-based real estate giant Mitsubishi Estate, Indonesian manufacturing company and property developer Gesit Group and diversified conglomerate Santini Group, said in a statement.
“The office tower will be supported by retail and multifunction facilities on the lower floors, bringing the total floor area to over than 140,000 sq m,” the company said further, adding that the project is scheduled for completion in early 2021.
According to the company, a joint operation between Shimizu and Total Bangun Persada has also been appointed for the project development, which is incorporating an architectural design by Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Estate.
