The Jakarta administration plans to rebuild the burned sections of Senen Market in Central Jakarta and to integrate them with new apartment blocks in April.

Jakarta city secretary Saefullah said on Thursday that the design would be similar to the low-cost apartments currently under construction in Pasar Rumput and Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, “but they will be prioritized for low-cost apartment residents who want to move to nicer buildings. Other citizens will also have a chance by applying to the administration.”

The apartments will be constructed by PT Jaya Konstruksi Manggala Pratama, Senen Market’s proprietor. They will be built on land where Senen Market's razed blocks I and II used to stand.

Prior to the construction, the current vendors will be relocated to temporary stands that will be completed by Mar. 10. The proprietor had prepared 800 kiosks and 400-500 lots for the vendors, according to PT Jaya Konstruksi Manggala Pratama president director Sutopo Kristanto.

“For now, only some of the vendors have moved to the temporary stands,” Sutopo said, as quoted by tempo.co.

His company had yet to calculate the losses from the fire. The construction team was still unable to enter the site as the police had yet to finish their investigation.

Once the investigation was finished, they would begin drawing up blueprints for the new buildings. (dea/agn)
