The Jakarta administration has planned to build 14,564 low-cost apartment units in the next five years.
Jakarta Public Housing and Public Buildings Agency head Agustino Darmawan said that half of the target was expected to be completed this year.
“The construction of some projects started two years ago. At least 7,000 units will be ready in 2018,” Agustino said on Wednesday according to kompas.com.
“The apartments are in Nagrak, Rorotan, KS Tubun, Semper, Rawa Buaya, Pengadegan, BLK [Pasar Rebo], Rawa Bebek and Penjaringan,” he added.
