INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Jababeka Tbk through one of its subsidiaries namely Jababeka Residence, received an award as the Best Mega Township Development at the PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Award 2022, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Pacific Place, South Jakarta, Friday (11/11/2022).

The award was given thanks to the construction of the Correctio project which is The Next Silicon Valley in Indonesia. The award was given to Jababeka Residence – as the developer and manager of the Jababeka Area in Cikarang – according to the results of the Best Mega Township assessment indicator which consists of three aspects, including ideas, concepts and the latest conditions.

“Although it is still in the early stages since the release of Correctio, we are proud to receive the Best Mega Township Development award from PropertyGuru.  With all the support and enthusiasm of the community that we have received, Jababeka will continue to strive to build innovation in this region with partners,” said Marcus Lee.

He also emphasized that the vision of building Correctio is not only about developing the region but also building the future.

Meanwhile, on the same occasion, Setyono Djuandi Darmono as the founder and chairman of PT Jababeka Tbk, won an award as Indonesia’s Real Estate Personality of the Year from the PropetyGuru Indonesia Property Award 2022.

The award was given because the editorial of Property Report by Property Guru has witnessed the spirit of SD Darmono during its career in improving the lifestyle of the Indonesian people through housing, schools, offices and sustainable development.

Darmono, as he is commonly called, is a well-known pioneer in the real estate industry. An entrepreneur and educator with an honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow who was the figure behind the establishment of the Jababeka Industrial Estate in Cikarang in 1989 – the first industrial estate listed on the Jakarta and Surabaya stock exchanges. Then in 2011, he founded President University which is the first university in Indonesia to use English as the language of instruction.

Darmono said: “Property is the best business for economic growth. And since Indonesia has 4,000 times more land than Singapore, this is a great opportunity for everyone in the sector to help the government, grow the economy, and create jobs through property development.

And I salute PropertyGuru for organizing regular events like this to encourage dynamic young people who go into the property business and also people who are already in the business.”

As a prominent leader who attaches great importance to the development of the country, Darmono seeks to maintain strong ties with other countries by being actively involved in the Indonesia-Australia Business Council (IABC), Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), and the Indonesia -Taiwan Business Council (ITBC). His passion is also evident in the books he has written throughout his career, most notably his latest book entitled, “Bringing Civilizations Together”.

Therefore, with his encouragement and motivation, he has received many other awards, including the Ernst and Young Best Entrepreneur in Manufacturing Industry award in 2004, CNBC’s CEO Choice of the Year in Indonesia in 2005, and Indonesia’s Choice CEO of the Year in 2005 by the Indonesia Business Leaders Award.

And now in 2022, PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards is very honored to recognizing SD Darmono, which is currently 73 years old, and remains committed to the property sector and society after decades of pursuing this industry.
