A team of architecture firms have presented a plan to develop an 88-storey mixed-use building in Jakarta for Indonesian firm Peruri.
The design team include MVRDV of Rotterdam, US-based Jerde Partnership, UK-based Arup (Dublin) and developer Wijaya Karya – Benhil Property.
Planned to be built at the Jl. Palatehan 4 site in the Indonesian capital, the Peruri 88 tower will have around 360,000m² of space for residential, office and hotel.
The developer said Peruri 88 will also feature retail and entertainment spaces and is planned as an iconic building to become a public gathering place for the city.
Design architecture for the project will be provided by MVRDV and Jerde, while Arup will be responsible for structural engineering consultation.
MVRDV founder Winy Maas said: "Peruri’s soaring Tower (Vertical Jakarta) represents a new, denser, social, green mini-city – a monument to the development of Jakarta as a modern icon literally raised from its own city fabric."
The commercial podium of the Peruri building will be designed by Jerde to reflect the city’s island existence with water bodies and landscape in the public street levels and an integrated sunken garden plaza.
Jerde design director David Rogers said, "Our inspiration for the commercial podium and public spaces was the island’s natural setting; lush jungle and stone surrounded by expansive ocean."
