Pluit City Master Plan

SOM’s master plan for two new islands on 450 hectares of reclaimed land off the north coast of Jakarta, Indonesia, creates the first phase of a unique “archipelago” city district to be built in the historic Jakarta Bay. They offer an affordable solution to providing for Jakarta’s swiftly swelling population, while helping to deliver a sea defense to protect the city from sea level rise and severe storm surges that threaten millions of its residents.

Linking mixed-use districts with residential neighborhoods will be a network of boulevards, green spaces, and plazas, including a Central Park on each island. Vast water reservoirs integrated into this landscape are designed to manage peak tropical storm events as well as provide 80 percent of the development’s water needs. The landscape vision of the project also aims to address the loss of native flora and fauna from Jakarta’s waterfront by reinstating natural mangroves along the island edges.
