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.
A CCTV camera at the home of Novel Baswedan on Jalan Deposito T, Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, recorded the movements of a heavy-set man who knocked on his door on the afternoon of April 5. He was wearing a black and white hat, a long-sleeved shirt and jeans. He could be seen talking with someone inside the house, who does not appear on the video.
