This is a special year for Indonesia and Japan as the two countries mark 60 years of diplomatic ties.
Diplomatic relations began in 1958 and the celebration of 60 years of ties showcases a long and rich partnership. Japan has become a strategic partner for Indonesia, especially in the economic sphere.
According to Japanese Ambassador to Indonesia Masafumi Ishii, close cooperation between Indonesia and Japan is also supported by people-to-people connections in various areas.
In celebration of the 60th anniversary various events were held in Jakarta and beyond. As well as the cultural events, such as traditional performances by Japanese Wadaiko and Indonesian Rampak Gendang, the celebration also featured other events, including a soccer game in Riau, West Sumatra, which was held in January. Cultural festivals are set to be held in Riau in March and April including symposiums and a flower festival, as well as other events planned at the Indonesian and Japanese representative’s offices.
Long presence in real estate
Japan has a long presence in Indonesia, especially in real estate. Japan’s early presence in Indonesia in this respect began in 1975, when the Tokyu Land Corporation started its property business in Bandung and expanded to Jakarta in 1981. Tokyu Land Corporation is a subsidiary of Tokyu Fudosan Holdings, a comprehensive real estate developer, which began its journey in Japan in 1953.
With over 40 years of history in Indonesia, Tokyu Land Corporation established Tokyu Land Indonesia in 2012, with the objective of harnessing know-how and trust, as well as its wealth of experience as a comprehensive developer in Japan and the group’s collective strength, to develop a pioneering business in Indonesia. Soon after its establishment, the company launched the condominium brand BRANZ, which was developed in Japan, in Indonesia in 2015.
BRANZ Simatupang adopts Japanese building principles that emphasize the importance of high quality, detail and commitment. On top of the standard of high quality, BRANZ Simatupang also offers comprehensive after sales services and building maintenance, which benefits residents because the original look of a building and its Japanese nuances can be retained despite the passing of time. These are among the features that distinguish BRANZ Simatupang from other apartments.
Under the disaster management system, Tokyu Land Indonesia adopts a safety first concept as it cares for the safety of its residents. The safety first concept is realized by strengthening disaster preparedness during normal times and implementing measures properly during times of emergency. That’s why BRANZ Simatuang comes complete with an escape floor to ensure that no residents are left behind during an emergency such as a fire or an earthquake.
Branz Simatupang also equips its elevators with built-in earthquake and fire mitigation features.
To prepare for times of emergency, such as during a fire or earthquake, Tokyu Land Indonesia has also prepared emergency supplies, including gas-powered generators, hand-cranked chargeable radios, portable toilets and first aid kits.
Every room at BRANZ Simatupang is designed to ensure space is utilized effectively, supporting stress-free and comfortable living for residents.
BRANZ Simatupang is strategically located in the TB Simatupang area, a new and fast growing business district in South Jakarta. The condominium is only several minutes away from the gate of TB Simatupang Jakarta Outer Ring Road (JORR) through which residents can easily access Soekarno-Hatta International airport. Moreover, BRANZ Simatupang is also close to the MRT which is currently being constructed, providing residents with easy and comfortable access to different areas in the city. The MRT is expected to begin operation in 2019.
BRANZ Simatupang’s strategic location, close to JORR gate and the MRT line will likely increase its asset value. Furthermore, BRANZ Simatupang adopts a good management system, another vital element that supports the asset value of real estate and comfort in everyday life. The management system balances a daily operation plan and a long-term maintenance plan that spans 15 years.
The long-term maintenance plan predicts and visualizes repairs that maybe required in the future, and executes it in a planned manner to ensure the maintenance of residential comfort and durability of the newly constructed condominium over the long-term. The long-term maintenance plan is aimed at ensuring future cost saving and keeping the asset value of the building high.
BRANZ Simatupang comprises two condominium towers (North Tower and South Tower). South Tower condominium is available in two types: 149-square-meter units with three bedrooms and 122 sqm units with two bedrooms; while North Tower condominium is available with 2 bedrooms type (125 sqm), and 1 bedroom type (56 sqm.)
