Site Visits

Site visits organized by Jakarta City Government

The New Cities Summit 2015 culminates with a unique opportunity to visit some of Jakarta’s most innovative and ambitious urban projects.

Participants will have the opportunity to choose between three site visits:

1. MRT and Alam Sutera

This site visit will bring you to two of Jakarta’s biggest development projects; the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system and the Alam Sutra mixed-use development zone:

- The MRT project, which will undoubtedly have huge effects on traffic issues in Jakarta, is currently under construction in central Jakarta. The first routes aim to be operational by 2020 with more routes opening by 2024.

- Alam Sutera is a mixed-use, ecologically planned, development zone in the Serpong-Tangerang area, West Jakarta. Created in 1994, the district is now one of the city’s most dynamic neighbourhoods and includes both residential and commercial areas, as well as premium educational, recreational, health and commercial facilities.

2. Kota Tua - Old Batavia

This site visit will tour one of the most historical districts of Jakarta – the Kota Tua, also known as Old Bata- via. Don’t miss your chance to learn about the history of Jakarta through visits to the Jakarta History Museum, originally the City Hall of Batavia; the Fine Arts and Ceramics Museum; and the Puppet Museum, displaying an extensive collection of the famed Javanese puppets and the the Bank of Indonesia Museum, which showcases the role of the Central Bank in Indonesian history since Dutch colonial days.

3. A New City: BSD City

Visit one of Indonesia’s most ambitious urban planning projects. Built on an area half the size of Paris, BSD City envisions a city-based community with high-quality affordable homes. BSD City includes high-tech and professionally managed business spaces, coupled with an unparalleled choice of exciting entertainment and leisure facilities.
