at Ciputra World site. According to Mr. Harun Hajadi, the
Director, the development of this hotel was an effort to
complete the area of Ciputra World superblock with various
facilities. Currently an international shopping mall and two
towers apartment have been developed on the 8.5 ha area
located on Jalan Mayjen Sungkono. In the future, this area will
also be added with the development of office building.
“We were not interested in developing a standalone hotel,
because the return on investment would be smaller. All of our
hotels were built to become a supporting facility in our developed mall. For examples were the ones in Jakarta and
Semarang”, said Mr. Harun after the launching event. He also explained that with lesser fund in acquiring the land,
investment would become smaller. Besides, a hotel that was built in the same area with a mall would create higher
occupancy rate, because in general visitors preferred to choose hotel which was close to the mall. No wonder if
management of Ciputra World Hotel targeted its occupancy rate in the first year to reach 65% to 70%, from the total 212
rooms available. “In that case, hotel guests would not need taxi or other transportation if they wanted to go for
shopping. They can shop anytime only by walking”, said Mr. Harun as he closed the explanation.

New Project Launched
CitraLand Puri Serang
Jakarta – PT Ciputra Development Tbk (CTRA) looks at property business prospect in 2015 optimistically, as the
probability of growth is around 10% to 12%. This confidence is based on several factors, such as BI rate, which is stable
at 7.5% in almost a year, the relative stable inflation rate and conducive political situation, therefore it is expected that
economic growth can grow in line with Government’s expectation. This statement was delivered by Mr. Cakra Ciputra,
Managing Director of CTRA to a number of media, in the event of Preview New Project of CitraLand Puri Serang, at
Ciputra World 1 on 14 November 2014.
According to Mr. Cakra, among many investment instruments, such as stock, gold, Rupiah exchange and others, which
are all not really stable, property has again proved itself as the most favourable investment instrument perpetually. Even
in crisis condition, property price never goes down. And as an investment, property has 2 main advantages, including
capital gain (certain price increase of land and building) and yield (increase of rental rate).
“This is strong reason why CTRA continuously conducts business expansion, by opening new projects in big cities all over
Indonesia, including in Serang, Banten. We have our new project CitraLand Puri, which will be marketed very soon, with
target market of middle class in Serang”, said Mr. Cakra.
CitraLand Puri is an Urban Lifestyle City on an area of 40 hectares, which will be developed by PT Ciputra Mitra Cipta, a
subsidiary of CTRA. It will consist of landed residential, SOHO, apartment, commercial area, urban lifestyle center and
place of worship. The project will become an urban and sub-urban area with all the things needed, such as convenience,
accessibility, as well as investment. It is planned that landed residential will be developed into 5 clusters, then will be
followed by three towers of apartment.
The location of CitraLand Puri is on Jl. Raya Lingkar Selatan, Ciracas, Serang, and is very strategic because it is in the
center of Serang, near the government offices, not far from business center and is located in between 2 toll roads (East
Serang and West Serang).
“Not only from the location, we are optimistic that this project will be success, because CitraLand Puri is an urban
lifestyle city project in Serang, which we know that market in this segment has not been touched well”, added Mr. Cakra.
Moreover, according to Mr. Bing Sugiarto Chandra, Director of CitraLand Puri project, Serang is chosen as area for new
business expansion of CTRA because it will be very prospective in the future. As an industrial and transit city, economic
growth of Serang, which is very significant from time to time, offers many opportunities, such as the property sector,
which is predicted to be booming.
“Based on data from Central Statistics Agency (Badan Pusat Statistik/BPS), economic growth trend in Banten province
for period 2010 to 2013 has significantly increased, especially in Serang city, Serang district (kabupaten) and Cilegon,
which has the fastest growth, above 5.5% in average”, said Mr. Bing. “Economic growth of Serang is the highest among
other cities in Banten province and this is shown in the busy economic situation there. Various goods and service
business are also developed rapidly”, added Mr. Bing.
As a new city, Serang shows good growth trend. Like other cities, the top leading sectors are trading, hotel, restaurant
and other services, followed by property sector within one year. Starting from 2011 till now, those sectors are still on
top rank regarding economic growth rate.
Mr. Bing also believed that rapid growth of Serang was also supported by good infrastructure. Serang has many accesses,
from province road to toll road which connect with Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi (Jabodetabek) areas,
and also connect with other cities in West Java and Central Java. Serang also has two toll road accesses, East Serang and
The availability in prime infrastructure, rapid growth of industry and high population growth will support property
industry growth in Serang. Development of infrastructure and industry growth, at the end will boost demand in
residential and commercial property sector. “And from those positive developments, CTRA is very optimistic will grab
success, same with our projects in other big cities”, said Mr. Bing as he closed the announcement.

located on Jalan Benyamin Suaeb Lot A6, Kemayoran, Central Jakarta. The office towers project, which will spend around
Rp 2 trillion and is targeted to be fully completed in four years, is a joint operation with PT Pembina Sukses Utama.
The ground breaking was participated by the Board of Directors and Management of CR and PT Pembina Sukses Utama.
“This ground breaking event is also held as a form of our commitment that the development has been started”, said Mr.
Budiarsa Sastrawinata, President Director of CR.
CitraTowers Kemayoran Business District will consist of two towers office building with 25 floors and 1 mezzanine for
each tower, completed with lifestyle commercial facilities on an area of 1.8 hectares. It is designed with green
development concept and high quality as a representative workplace and supported with complete business facilities.
“With the power of Ciputra’s brand, we expect the development of CitraTowers would become a strong icon of
Kemayoran area”, said Mr. Budiarsa.
CitraTowers is sold strata-title with price of Rp 30 million per sqm. Every floor of CitraTowers will consist of 12 units with
area of 70 sqm to 174 sqm for each unit. In the early phase, the first tower, with a total building area of 41,000 sqm was
marketed and up to now, 40% of the space has been sold.
Mr. Agussurja Widjaja, Senior Director of CR explained that the advantages of CitraTowers are, among others, creating
comfort for the professionals through complete and efficient working facilities. Besides, green development concept
which is applied in the development will result in plenty of active social room and natural air circulation. Then the use of
environmental friendly building material and design of many windows will allow natural sunshine to come in. All these
will result in electricity energy saving.
CitraTowers has been awarded a certificate of Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) from International
Finance Corporation (IFC). This is the first award received by offices in Indonesia, after passing several categories, such
as usage of material in the development process, which is energy saving, water saving and energy saving.
According to Mr. Budiarsa, the selection of Kemayoran area, which used to be an international airport, was because it
has potency as Central Business District (CBD) alternative area. “We plan to involve in the development of Kemayoran
Currently, there is only one CBD in Jakarta: the Golden Triangle of Sudirman-Thamrin-Gatot Subroto. Looking to the
position of the location, apart from close to the government center, Kemayoran area is relatively also not too far from
the current CBD area. Besides, the location of Kemayoran is surrounded by trade area, such as Mangga Dua, Pasar Baru,
Senen, Kelapa Gading and Sunter. Moreover, Kemayoran has direct acces to Soekarno Hatta international airport and
also Tanjung Priok port. All these have created the integrated area to become one of the international gate way to the
capital city of DKI Jakarta.
According to Mr. Budiarsa, in the condition of more business activities in CBD, the capacity of infrastructure is now
limited. The broadening of CBD area cannot be avoided. Kemayoran area, with its outstanding advantages has potency
to become a new CBD, as well as can grow as the competitor of CBD Golden Triangle. He added, “Right now in Golden
Triangle, selling price for office is around Rp 45 to 50 million per sqm, while in CitraTowers, the price is only Rp 30 million
Moreover, Mr. Budiarsa said, “We expect Kemayoran will become a modern, integrated, comfort, safe and
environmental friendly smart district. With good planning and integrated design, we believe CitraTowers project will give
high capital gain and value added. All this premium quality will increase the selling price of this area in the future.”
