Mori Building began construction on its Class A office tower in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Project marks Mori Building’s first development in Southeast Asia.
Shimizu Corp. and Bangun Cipta Kontraktor are jointly serving as the development contractors and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates designed the tower. Kohn Perdersen Fox is also in charge with the design of a Hong Kong mixed-use development.
The Jakarta project is set to obtain a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award, which is one of the highest rating for environmental impact and performance. The tower is scheduled for completion in 2021.
The building is designed to be a new landmark in Jakarta, located in the center of the Golden Triangle, next to the Semanggi Intersection and the New Semanggi Flyover on Sudirman Street, the main thoroughfare in the city’s central business district. The 59-story, two million-square-foot tower will feature offices, restaurants, cafes and a secure parking space for tenants of the building.
Mori Building plans to leverage its extensive urban-development background from its diverse projects in Tokyo and Shanghai, to contribute to the advancement of Jakarta.
