Japanese property management firm Mori Building has started construction on its new office tower in the Sudirman area of Jakarta, Indonesia.
The 59-storey building known as Jakarta Office Tower Project is Mori Building’s first undertaking in Southeast Asia and its first major overseas undertaking since the Shanghai World Financial Center that opened in 2008.
The office building is located in the centre of the Golden Triangle, next to Semanggi Intersection and the New Semanggi Flyover on Sudirman Street, the main thoroughfare in the city’s central business district.
Scheduled to become operational in 2021, the 266m tower will provide nearly 190,000 sq m of spaces for offices, restaurants and cafes and parking lots.
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), the project is likely to secure a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award, one of the highest ratings for environmental impact and performance.
Japan-based Shimizu Corporation and Indonesia-based Bangun Cipta Kontraktor are jointly involved in the construction of the tower.
