Global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has unveiled designs for a major mixed-use tower development in central Jakarta, Indonesia.
The development, named ‘7Point8’, will feature two towers with the tallest standing 298m on Jakarta’s central business district skyline, providing a bold statement on the main artery running through Jakarta.
7Point8 will combine office, retail, commercial, residential and public space within an integrated building style and contribute to the rejuvenation of Jakarta’s central business district, with the hub set to benefit from direct connections to the new Setiabudi Mass Rapid Transit station.
Ian Simpson, director at Broadway Malyan, said with no comparable development in Jakarta today, 7Point8 will break new ground in the local market when it launches in phases from mid this year.
Broadway Malyan is delivering a number of projects in Indonesia, including the masterplan for the high profile 11.7 hectare Cilandak Bisnis Square (CIBIS) project in Jakarta, on behalf of client Bhumyamka Sekawan.
In May, it was announced that Jakarta tops the latest edition of consulting firm AT Kearney’s Emerging Cities Outlook (ECO) Index, which focuses on cities from low- to middle-income countries that will most likely progress within the next ten to 20 years.
