Daily News Indonesia – PT Jakarta Propertindo (Perseroda) (JakPro) invites the general public to travel or tour using electric buses for six days.
They were invited to visit five iconic new faces of Jakarta, namely Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM), Jakarta International Velodrome (JIV), Jakarta International Equestrian Park (JIEP), Lintas Raya Terpadu (LRT), and Jakarta International Stadium (JIS).
“Complimentary or free of charge,” said Ms. Nadia Diposanjoyo, head of JakPro’s corporate secretary division.
Nadia said, this activity aims to invite citizens to see iconic architectural works made by the nation’s greatest with international standard as well as also feel the facilities available to interact and move with the community.
“We want people to be able to enjoy the uniqueness of the iconic work of the nation’s world-recognized children, namely Velodrome, Equistrian Park, LRT, JIS, and TIM Revitalization,” said Nadia.
Nadia added, each of these iconic buildings has its own uniqueness, in addition to functioning as a public space as well as being able to support the rise of the sportstaiment industry in the country.
He pointed out, Jakarta International Velodrome has several advantages such as a bicycle racing track using Siberian wood.
“This wood will make cyclists safer, because this wood is finely fibrous and is supple and light for tilting tracks. So it is very suitable with the elasticity of bicycle tires and in accordance with the standards set by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI),” She said.
Velodrome is equipped with a special engine room located under the track. Its function is to maintain standard air humidity points of 50-70 percent, so that wood can last up to 30 years.
In addition, the capacity of the Velodrome can accommodate about 3,000 to 5,000 people. Velodromes use energy-efficient membrane roofs. Because, during the day athletes can train using natural light.
The next project is the iconic buildings of the Jakarta International Equestrian Park (JIEP) located in Pulomas, East Jakarta, the only international standard Equestrian arena in Southeast Asia at this time.
In terms of architecture, the Equestrian Park building is shaped like a curve inspired by the shape of a jumping horse. The architecture of the stable building, horse clinic, administrative office, athletes’ locker room, and storage room is inspired by the architecture of the barn (wheat barn) and the shape of the building looks like a horseshoe.
“While the sand in the equestrian arena uses sand that comes from the Bangka area mixed with bio textiles from Germany, thus making the texture of the sand feel moist,” said Nadia.
Ms. Nadia would not spare her explanation of the LRT as part of the new transportation system created by the Jakarta Government. She said, this mass public transportation is one of the transportatiion system to reduce congestion as well as pollution in Jakarta. The engineers are 100 percent local and the operations are 80 percent millennials.
Meanwhile, the Jakarta LRT project uses a series of light rail cars from South Korea. “Jakarta LRT is made by Hyundai Rotem, this South Korean-made LRT has a balanced specification between speed and accuracy,” She explained.
The fourth program is to revisit the almost complete renovation project of Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM). This cultural complex will function as be urban art center and creative hub not only for Jakarta but also for the whole country, with various advantages and carry the concept of multi-function venues.
TIM will also be a laboratory as well as a barometer of art in Indonesia and TIM will have more open space.
Although built with international quality, TIM is inspired by the local wisdom that exists.
“For example, one of the new buildings with a unique design in TIM is the Library and Art Guesthouse, otherwise known as Gedung Panjang which is inspired by a song created by
Ismail Marzuki, Rayuan Pulau Kelapa,” She said.
Last but not the least iconic project is the monumental building made by the youth is Jakarta International Stadium (JIS). This FIFA standard stadium has a capacity of 82 thousand spectators and the first stadium and building to have obtained a platinum green building certificate or the highest level.
JIS is the first stadium in Indonesia to use hybrid grass blending natural grass from Boyolali with synthetic grass from Italy. In addition, JIS is the first stadium in Indonesia that will have a retractable roof. Amazingly, local Indonesian engineers were able to apply the 3,900 ton Roof Frame Lifting Technology method.
“The process of lifting the roof frame weighing 3,900 tons along 270 meters can be lifted up to a height of 70 meters simultaneously. Because this advantage also gets a record MURI 3 categories at once,” She said.
Nadia explained, every touring session, a maximum of 30 people participated because it adjusted to the capacity of electric buses and health protocols. People who are interested in participating in the tour must first register through https://bit.ly/publictourjakpro.
In addition to public touring, JakPro also opens the opportunity for the people of Indonesia to be able to see up close the process and progress of various infrastructure development that is being done by JakPro. There are two facilities that are still running, and open for public visit, namely revitalization of Taman Ismail Marzuki and Jakarta International Stadium.
