INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito stressed that it is very important for developers to look at the development policy direction of the government before deciding to build a residential or regional project.
"For example, look at what we did at Parramatta in 2012. We see the direction of the NSW government's development policy leading to the west of Sydney, which is why we decided to build a vertical village in Parramatta, the V by Crown Group, the price is very significant, "said Iwan through his written statement in Jakarta, Monday (21/05/2018).
"From the selling price at that time was Rp5, 75 billion for the apartment with type 2 bedroom, currently has reached the range of Rp11, 73 billion or an increase in price as much as 104%," added Iwan
Meanwhile, continued Iwan, for the type 1 bed apartment, the price at the time of launch is Rp4, 67 billion at this time the price has reached AUS $ 7.62 billion or increased price by 63% within the period of 5 years
"That's what drives us to rebuild Eastlakes Town Center into Eastlakes Live by Crown Group which will become an iconic new hub in the region," he explained.
According to him, the company also looks at the direction of government policy to build new transportation facilities. The Inner West Light Rail Train in the Kensington / Kingsford area has begun its construction process in January 2018, and this will further make Eastlakes more mobile and more connected to other areas including the CBD.
"Currently the price range of vertical housing in the region is at Rp 6 billion for 1 bedroom apartment, and did not rule out when the Light Rail system has been realized, the price will certainly jump," he said.
