"As a capital city of one of the world's most populous countries, urbanisation and infrastructure development will continue to play a vital role in furthering growth in Indonesia,' said Darjoto Setyawan, managing director, communications of Rajawali Corporation.
Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, whose works include The St Regis Mexico City, the integrated development encompasses the new hotel, along with a 47-story office tower, and dining and retail components.
According to the statement, the commercial office tower is set to offer grade A facilities and become the address for numerous multinational corporations, local conglomerates and financial institutions, thus positioning The St Regis Jakarta in a prime location for business travellers.
