INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Public transportation becomes an attraction and added value for consumers in determining the choice of occupancy. Property consultant Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL) rate it because remember the time taken by people to work longer.
"Currently, many workers who travel from home to his office with travel time of 2.5 hours and even more," said Head of Residential Luke Rowe.
He said, with the operation of light rail or LRT and Mass transport or MRT, will cut the travel time of the workers significantly.
According to Rowe, this also encourages developers to build transit-oriented development (TOD) areas around LRT and MRT stations.
Apartment projects in TOD are currently popular mainly with small unit types, low prices, and flexible payment methods.
"This is due to the fact that consumers targeting TOD projects are office workers or manager-level, for them, LRT and MRT are very useful," Rowe said.
In terms of areas, he explains, people tend to find residential locations that have complete facilities.
