People living in Jakarta can soon enjoy a city forest, similar to New York’s Central Park, in GBK, Senayan in the third week of December 2019.
Plataran is currently revitalising this city forest in order to create a greener, healthier, and more peaceful escape from the bustling roads of Jakarta.
Plataran focuses on nature, Indonesian culture, community empowerment, and sustainable business development to create a variety of representative outdoor-indoor venues. It’s no wonder Plataran became the designated maintainer of the GBK City Forrest, after a strict selection process conducted by a special selection committee, as well as mentoring conducted by the office of the state attorney.
Enriched by Hadiprana Design, the city forest area consists of 4.5 hectares, of which an area of 1.3 hectares is managed by PPKGBK, and an area of 3.2 hectares is managed by Plataran Indonesia under the name of City Forest by Plataran.
More trees will be added to give the city a bigger lung capacity, existing buildings will be renovated, and additional facilities such as a restaurant-MICE area, Plataran Tiga From Dining, Pidi Coffee Lounge and Rooftop, conservatorium venue, Plataran wall expressions, Plataran pets playground, Majapahit tribute park, Plataran Putri Dewi amphitheatre, equator exhibition deck, a musholla, jogging track, and half-caged basketball court will entertain visitors.
“We want people to get in touch with nature, so we hope that City Forrest by Plataran can be another option for everyone, especially youth, to lean in during their free time and not just going to malls. Enjoy some nibbles and drinks on a rooftop amidst the Indonesian plants and locally-designed buildings, in the middle of Senayan,” said CEO of Plataran, Yozua Makes.
With Light of Nusantara as its tagline, this city forest is expected to complement the restaurant facilities and MICE venues with a representative, indoor-outdoor concept in Jakarta for residents of the city, foreign and domestic tourists, and make positive impacts on personal, family, official, and state activities. It’s located in the central business district of Jakarta and can be easily accessed by private and public transportation such as MRT and TransJakarta.
