A New Urban Centre for Bekasi

TOWNLAND was commissioned by PT. Summarecon Agung Tbk, to undertake a Master Layout Plan for a 250 ha Site to the north of Bekasi City Centre, West Java. The primary objective of the Master Layout Plan is to develop a new urban centre and residential facilities aimed at the mid to high-end market. The new development will generate a distinctive high quality urban development that will act as a catalyst for the emergence of a new City Centre within the Bekasi Region. The development consists of three major precincts including two residential neighbourhoods and a Town Centre. The Town Centre will be a vibrant high-density development that will include a mixture of mid to high rise mixed-use buildings. Uses will included shopping centres, office buildings, a hotel and apartment towers. Also catering for the Regional market, this precinct will become the new urban City Centre that will showcase a range of contemporary urban spaces and architecture. In comparison, the two surrounding residential neighbourhoods will consist of low-density residential developments, providing housing within a more green and tranquil suburban environment.  In the initial planning for the overall structure of the development, the proposed flyover toll road (that bisects the southern part of the Site) was utilised as a catalyst to implement the concept of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) as the development’s overriding urban theme. Existing water bodies were also retained and enhanced to provide residential neighbourhoods with green focal points. The development is a mixture of an efficient land utilisation and an organic spatial arrangement to create a pleasant urban experience for both residents and visitors alike.
