7 Point 8, Jakarta
Located in central Jakarta, ‘7Point8’ is a major mixed-use tower development based around a large central, public square. Two towers, the taller rising to 298m, are positioned at right angles to each other, framing the square. The towers’ gentle tapering forms ensure a distinctive profile on the Jakarta skyline.
A nine-storey podium links the two towers while also completing the enclosure of the square. The podium has been cut away at the most prominent street corner, creating a dramatic and generous public access route to the central garden, which forms the heart of the scheme.
The development is the first of its kind in Jakarta, which combines retail, commercial, and hospitality uses around an on-site public space, which is open twenty-four hours a day. It represents a natural evolution in the mixed-use typology for Jakarta, being one of the first schemes to integrate a new MRT station within the development.
