San Francisco—The Hundred, Farpoint’s new mixed-use development in Jakarta, has received the 2014 Bronze Award for Best Future Project at MIPIM Asia, a leading real estate-industry conference. The honor comes just two weeks after the groundbreaking for the Hundred, a dramatic 120,000-square-meter, U-shaped tower, which includes a Sofitel five-star hotel, exclusive residences, International Grade A offices and retail space. The tower designed by Woods Bagot is expected to open in phases from mid-2018 to early 2019.
“Farpoint set a high bar for creating a landmark that will have a positive impact through its environmental performance, advanced workplace design, and enhancement of the Mega Kuningan district,” said Patrick Daly, Woods Bagot’s Regional Executive Chairman of North America. “By carefully analyzing the site conditions and building systems, we were able to craft an integrated design that fulfills Farpoint’s vision.”
The Hundred occupies a premier site at the heart of Mega Kuningan, a new central business district located between two of Jakarta’s main thoroughfares. Although the project brief called for two separate towers, the design establishes a monolithic landmark by uniting the two towers with an arched podium to create a sweeping, iconic form. The podium’s base incorporates a 14-meter-tall portal framing a view to the public green at the heart of Mega Kuningan’s concentric plan.
The tower, which comprises 26 floors of office space, 212 hotel rooms, and 24 floors of luxury residences, is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification. Its curvilinear form, tailored for optimal sun orientation and wind patterns, and integrated building systems including high-performance facade, mechanical, structural and site systems, together reduce energy use by nearly 23 percent over baseline models.
“We are proud to create this development as our way of thinking beyond towards the needs which will arise from the business growth in Jakarta, and we are confident that The Hundred can fulfill these needs.” says Jusup Halimi, Chief Executive Officer of Farpoint on The Hundred groundbreaking ceremony held on site.”
