A Boom for Overseas Developers
ON an empty site next to an electrical cable factory in West Jakarta, 25 apartment towers are to be built. Last Tuesday, dozens of workers assembled on the 16-hectare site.
They were ready to start building the marketing office for Daan Mogot City Apartments, now commonly shortened to Damoci. The marketing office for the complex is four stories high. The second floor will be used for a display apartment.
The quick counts of five polling groups indicated that running mates in the Jakarta governor’s election, Agus Yudhoyono and Sylviana Murni were eliminated in the first round last week. In the upcoming April runoff election, the Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama and Djarot Saiful Hidayat ticket will face running mates Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno. Those who voted for Agus-Sylviana will determine the winner.
