Tallasa City is located strategically within the City of Makassar in South Sulawesi, in close proximity to Hasanuddin Airport, Hasanuddin University and downtown Makassar as well as the well-known Losari Beach. Comprising of 70 hectares, the Project is envisaged as one of the most complete Townships in Makassar, incorporating a diversity of functions, including residential, commercial, industrial and other development types. As a modern Integrated Township, Tallasa incorporates an engaging blue network, green infrastructure, and human linkages based on Eco-concepts. The main landscape concept prioritises ecological considerations and preserves the natural environment and incorporates the natural elements of Metal, Light, Plants, Wind and Water as key symbols in each thematic zone.
The two main Gateways into Tallasa at the northern and southern flanks of the Township serve as an important part of the Township’s identity and are designed with Metal Elements as a sign of a new Township which is sturdy and prestigious.
The Township places an emphasis on pedestrian and cycle connectivity and active linear corridors have been designed by TOWNLAND to connect open spaces, residential, commercial and other development components. Plant elements along road corridors are intended to support the Eco theme and to symbolize a dynamic growing Township. Water Elements are represented by the Tallo River that flanks on the west side of the Township, as well as small rivers that cross the Township leading to the Tallo River.
Various non-active areas consisting of future development and other areas have been designed as public parks incorporating functions such as running and cycling in order to support an active and healthy lifestyle.
