The design team of MVRDV, The Jerde Partnership, and ARUP has combined with developer Wijaya Karya to propose a bid for a vertical city in Jakarta, Indonesia, dubbed Peruri 88. The 400-meter-tall complex aims to provide green space while responding to a need for densification within the city, combining housing and offices with retail venues, a hotel, and several public programs in the mixed-use scheme. The new set of towers, sited beside a future metro station, comprises 360,000 square meters (3,875,008 square feet) within stacked blocks of varying scales, allowing for a variety of housing typologies in the mid-rise levels. At the towers’ base, a commercial podium—designed by The Jerde Partnership with MVRDV—takes advantage of the project’s verticality to offer nine levels of naturally-ventilated restaurants and shops built around a central plaza. The tallest tower will house a luxury hotel, with a penthouse-level restaurant offering panoramas of surrounding Jakarta.
