(p.97) Chapter 5 The Coast and the Last Frontier
After the New Order

Abidin Kusno

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter demonstrates the incorporation of Jakarta coastal area into a new waterfront city, which became the last frontier for the exploitation of urban resources. Two thousand seven hundred hectares of land along 32 kilometers of Jakarta's northern coastline were reclaimed to become the capital city and the location for hotels, business centers, shopping malls, office buildings, marinas, an entertainment complex, industrial parks, and upscale accommodation for some 1.19 million residents. In addition, the city administration revitalized some 2,500 hectares of the area known as “Kota” (Old Batavia). Together, Jakarta Bay and Kota would become the symbol of the rebirth of Jayakarta.
