UK-based architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has revealed the designs of a mixed-use tower in central Jakarta, Indonesia.

The mixed-used project, 7Point8, will feature two towers built in Jakarta's central business district. The tallest tower will be 298m-high and both will be connected by a podium structure.

The 7Point8 project will offer office, retail, commercial, residential and public spaces that will be directly connected to the newly developed Setiabudi Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station.

A joint venture between land owners and Jakarta-based developers, including Karya Cipta Group, selected Broadway Malyan to provide the concept and schematic design of the towers.

"Broadway designed the towers with square or rectangular walled exteriors and an open-air courtyard."

Inspired by the alun-alun or town squares of Javanse cities, Broadway designed the towers with square or rectangular walled exteriors and an open-air courtyard. They will be positioned at right angles to each other to achieve an east-west perspective.

This arrangement results in centralisation of the proposed public space and creates room for the development of an internal courtyard garden.

Broadway Malyan director Ian Simpson said: "This high-profile scheme is drawing on the diverse skills, expertise and experience of our global design experts, led by our Singapore-based team, which is partnering closely with the client to deliver a world-class landmark development."

Broadway Malyan is currently working on other projects in Indonesia, including the Bhumyamka Sekawan's 11.7ha Cilandak Bisnis Square (CIBIS) project in Jakarta.
