Construction of Sudirman Central Business District 1993-1994

Fig 1. Construction Site of the Sudirman Central Business District

This photograph is a good representation of how large-scale property projects were dealt with in the 1990s in Jakarta. Specifically to the Sudirman Business District project,  large land was dedicated in order to build several high-rise office buildings and install proper roads for the ease of transport. It was projects like these that shaped Jakarta as a modernised city as these aligned with Suharto’s ideal image of the city.
