DESIGN APPROACH
http://www.srssa.com/Signature_Tower/dapproach.html



With a combined site area measuring 50,674.0 square meters, and an allowable development area of 391,435 square meters, the
111-story development will include:

An Observatory,
A 300-key, 6-Star Luxury Hotel,
International Class A Office Space,
A Conference Center and Banquet Facilities, and
A Luxury Retail Mall.

Signature Tower Jakarta is organized by situating the Observatory and Hotel spaces on the highest floors, supported by the office floors and resting on the conference and retail podium levels.

This organization and structural arrangement has been successfully tested and repeated in some of the world’s tallest and notable super-high rise towers, such as the ICC Tower in Hong Kong and the Shanghai World Financial Center.

Site Planning for the Signature Tower development places the iconic tower in the center of the SCBD, between the existing Pacific Place Jakarta mixed-use development and the proposed 8 story retail / convention / restaurant podium.

The Signature Tower retail development is planned to have covered, direct pedestrian connections to the existing adjacent developments above ground and below ground, including an elevated pedestrian connector between the existing Pacific Place Jakarta and below grade connectors between Lots 5, 9, 10 and 22.

The design objectives for the development include providing an integrated, distinctive and symbolic world-class environment that is economically viable to construct, operate and maintain. An environment that is safe, secure, and ecologically responsible, and one that establishes a new style for Indonesian Architecture for the new millennium.

DESIGN BRIEF


Initial studies addressed a multiple of different approaches – each celebrating Indonesian culture and hope for the future. Of particular note were the “Garuda”, “Torch”, “Unity”, “Banyan Tree” and “Kris” schemes:

“Garuda” which through the use of proportions and aesthetics of the iconic skyscrapers of the early 20th Century , defined an architecture that lifts the building elements to the sky; mindful of the traditional Indonesian architecture and symbols that evoked a ‘rising up’ to the heavens, we looked to combine the basic elements of these symbols to create a tower that rises above the city, like the Garuda, spreading its wings over Indonesia in the new millennium.

“Torch”, which symbolically incorporated Pancasila, the five principles as illustrated in the national crest, through the use of four elements surrounding a central star, a star that transitions into a beacon of light that binds together the tower elements and rises up to illuminate the five principals over the nation’s capital.

“Unity”, illustrated in the links of the chain in the national crest symbolic of the solidarity of the multi-cultural society that is the bedrock of modern Indonesia, celebrates a society rich in cultural heritage and natural beauty, which comes together as one, supporting each other to move together hand in hand.

“Banyan Tree” symbolized an emblem of strength gained from the roots, rising upward, together in a pure, elegant and simple method to create a structural framework to support the dreams and visions of a strong and young nation.

“Kris”, a traditional and ceremonial symbol of Indonesian culture, married with the organic elements found in nature and traditional architecture, the symbolism and form of the tower comes together as if it were a sharp new sprout for the new millennium.

In completing the study of these different ideas, it was determined to proceed with a scheme that incorporated classic proportions with organic and natural elements symbolizing one great nation rising together to move into the new millennium

National Spirit
http://www.srssa.com/Signature_Tower/spirit.html

Signature Tower Jakarta celebrates the Indonesian spirit through the reinforcement of the date of the National Day of Independence,
17 August 1945, viewed on each façade of the tower. Visible during the day through the use of highly polished stainless-steel, 17 leaves
grow and blossom upward through the shaft of the tower.

At the crown, these 17 leaves are bound together by 8 louver grill elements, culminating to embrace a single 45 meter tall
spire: the 17th day of the 8th month in the 45th year.Central to the four building elevations of the crown, these elements
in turn are supported by 5 crystalline glass buds – accentuating the five principals of Pancasila – rising to support a single
central spire – the united Indonesian people. Hence the budding flower (Pancasila) spreading from all corners of the tower,
spreading to all corners of Indonesia.

In the evening on national holidays, we envision the 17 leaves would be outlined with white LED lights, the supporting 8 louver
grills up-lit in red light, the center glass buds back-lit in white light, and central spire illuminated with 45 red and white LED
bands. During non-holidays, the lighting would be able to be changed to suit the particular occasion.




THE TOWER



The 111-story tower rises 638m above the ground plane to the top of the spire. The highest floor sits approximately 534.45m above the street entry. While a simple 60m by 60m square form dominates the planning of the tower, achieving an elegant aspect ratio of approximately 9:1, the tower facade steps to accentuate the different uses within the complex; i.e.: retail and convention at the base, office use through the shaft, and hotel use at the crown.

The regular form of the tower, with notched corners, provides a straight forward and efficient planning platform for tenants to utilize, including an average 13.5m clear depth from the core wall to the exterior curtain wall and opportunities for multiple corner offices on each level.

The structural approach utilizes a super-column and out-rigger arrangement, surrounding an inner core wall. It is anticipated the structural system will be based on composite steel and concrete.

THE PODIUM



Separate monumental lobbies, in scale with the overall tower development, welcome Hotel Guests and Office Tenants at Ground Level. An exclusive banking hall fronts the main access to the office tower lifts, as well as act as a gateway into the retail portion of the podium. Access to the Observatory is via an experiential queuing and ticketing space at the Lower Ground Level.

Allowing it to operate at times when the retail mall is closed, segregated access is provided to an entertainment / restaurant area that is located on the roof of the podium, above the 5,000 square meter Function Space. An independent entrance allows guests to arrive at the Conference Center via dedicated lifts or escalators that travel within the perimeter of the podium glass wall, separated from the retail mall customers.

Exclusive retail space is organized around a larger, 4-story atrium, with expansion planning incorporated to accommodate future development of Lot 8.

http://www.thorntontomasetti.com/pro...ignature_tower

Thornton Tomasetti is providing structural engineering services for a 111-story, 600-meter mixed-use tower that will be the tallest building in southeast Asia when completed. Located on lots six and seven of the Sudirman Central Business District (SCBD) in Jakarta, Indonesia, the project has an observatory at the top level, 25 levels of hotel space, 24 levels of residential, 50 levels of office space, 10 levels of retail podium that includes a conference center, a ballroom and restaurants, and six levels of basement parking and provides a total area of 593,000 square meters.

The building is located within one of the most active seismic zone in the world. Classified as Seismic Design Category D, Signature Tower presents great challenges to engineers because of high seismic reactions and extremely soft soil conditions. The primary lateral system used includes a composite core wall, composite super columns and steel outrigger trusses. The exterior mega fame includes nine steel belt trusses, six steel floor trusses and additional composite super columns that accommodate the specific requirements of the high seismic zone. Performance-based design was used to evaluate the building performance under different levels of seismic hazard, in addition to the traditional code-based design, in order to achieve an efficient and safe structure.

An observatory on top! How awesome is that! Geil! I wanna see some stars up there, once this is finished. Though all the light emissions of Jakarta metro might lead to quite a reduced observation experience

Well it doesn't necessary has to be in the crown at all. They could just meant the top floor. Take the burj khalifa - they call it's observation deck "at the top" while it's more or less in the middle of the building

yes, but then i looked at detailed pictures of the crown and the top floor seems to be inside the crown, it looks like when the crown starts there are still at least two more floors and i thought that might be the observation deck

I wouldn't equal observatory and observation platform here. Those are two different cups of beer, pals.

Inside an observatory, you take a glimpse at the stars through a telescope or the likes.

yes, putting a space observatory in one of the most vivid cities is probably a bad idea, you can't see much with light pollution. I know that Mecca has a space observatory inside the tallest building, but i don't think it works for a city like Jakarta.

If I remember right Mecca tower doesn't have proper space observatory, but a lunar observatory. Just a useless toy for the owners fancy.

Does Jakarta Need a 111-Story Tower?
By Jason Tedjasukmana | April 17, 2012

An impressive skyline is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Jakarta. Indeed, from the city’s traffic-clogged streets, it can be difficult to see anything other than cars, shops and smog. But one property firm is hoping to change that. An Indonesia company called PT Danayasa Arthatama is pitching a project called the Signature Tower, a 111-story hotel-and-office complex. Standing at a projected 638 m (2,093 ft.), it would be taller than the former World Trade Center in New York City and eclipse the tallest building in Southeast Asia, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. “This will be proof that Indonesia has changed,” says Santoso Gunara, president commissioner of PT Danayasa Arthatama. “We need something like this so people will know there is something going on here.”

There is certainly a lot happening in Indonesia. The Southeast Asian nation has bounced back from the 1997 Asian financial crisis and is, for the first time in decades, on sound financial footing. The Indonesian economy is turning heads at a time when most developed economies are trying to turn the corner. The country has seen an average annual GDP growth rate of 5.2% from 2001 to ’08, and it is expected to expand more than 6% this year. Earlier this year, its sovereign-debt status was bumped up to investment grade by two of the major ratings agencies — a third is likely to follow suit. “We expect growth to pick up in the coming years to about 7% over the medium term,” said Stephen Schwartz, BBVA Research’s chief economist for Asia.

The developers hope the tower will be a symbol of Indonesian ascendancy, a testament to the country’s towering ambitions. But not everyone is sold — on Indonesia’s prospects, or on the project itself. As a recent report co-authored by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) points out, Indonesia’s economy is still relatively fragile. If growth stays at current levels, Indonesia would need 23 years to reach the per capita income level that neighboring Thailand achieved in 2008. The report warns that Indonesia risks succumbing to the “middle-income trap” wherein inadequate infrastructure, weak institutions and economic inequality dampen growth. “Stronger institutions are key in pushing forward harder reforms, such as reducing badly targeted fuel subsidies, which are needed to accelerate more productive investments in infrastructure development and initiatives to reduce inequality,” says Jon Lindborg, ADB country director for Indonesia.

These and other concerns have critics asking if a record-breaking skyscraper is ill advised. Analysts seem split on what an additional 200,000 sq m (over 2 million sq. ft.) of office space might mean for the city. “That’s a lot of supply in one building,” said Todd Lauchlan, country head of Jones Lang LaSalle Indonesia. “But given the superb location and quality of design, I have no doubt the project will be a success.” Jakarta-based architect Ahmad Djuhara is less optimistic. “The supporting infrastructure is questionable, and there are so many problems, like traffic congestion, that could be created,” he said. “There are other ways to make your mark as a developer other than just going high.”

For now the developers, like the country, are pressing ahead. They hope to break ground by year’s end.
