I got some question: What was the twin of this tower again? I remember a "clone design" of the Signature Tower, it must have been somewhere in the United States, perhaps Nebraska. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about? Thanks.

Same old, same old. There are only a few cities in the world which could really support a megatall (HK, NY, Tokyo,...). Those cities already have a sea of skyscrapers and are superdense. Jakarta has a few 200m+ skyscraper and no supertall, yet they shoot for a 600m+ monster.

Don't get me wrong here, I'm not judging. As a skyscraper enthusiast I welcome every megatall. But it would be nice to have some balance in the skyline before aiming so high. The tower as it is planned now, is nothing but dick waving.

I'm still waiting for city which builds a megatall out of demand and out of necessity (f.e. no / spare space). HK and NY are hot candidates.

Are you referring to Taipei as an example?

Also Taipei 101 wasn't build out of demand at all, it's a pretty stand alone tower, that was there to give the city and country attention, and it surely went out pretty well for the city.

Here is the english version..

Tomy Winata courts MGM Hospitality for Signature
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 05/24/2012 9:06 AM

Quote:
The Artha Graha Network, a diversified business conglomeration controlled by tycoon Tomy Winata, has courted MGM Hospitality to run the management of hotels, apartments and convention centers in the upcoming Signature Tower that will be built by its subsidiary, PT Danayasa Arthatama.

Danayasa will start building the 638-meter building later this year and is expected to be completed by 2020. Signature Tower, which will be Indonesia’s tallest and the world’s fifth-tallest building is expected to cost about US$2 billion.

“We admire MGM Hospitality as an owner and operator of world-class hotels. It will be the first time for them to do business in Indonesia. By collaborating with MGM, hopefully we can create a different atmosphere in Jakarta,” said Danayasa director Agung Prabowo in a telephone interview on Wednesday.

Both companies had not determined the value and time period of the contract. However, the signing was enough to show strong commitment of Danayasa and MGM toward the cooperation, Agung stated.

Using the Bellagio Hotel brand, MGM Hospitality will operate 290 super-luxury hotel rooms, which will be located on the 20 highest floors of Signature Tower.

The subsidiary of MGM Resorts International is also set to manage 350 hotel rooms and serviced apartments in the Signature’s south tower.

Love this tower! Considering it's the same architects from the cancelled Signature Tower in Nashville, it looks like they resurrected the design and made it 2x taller!!

Danayasa seeks loans to fund Signature Tower

Publicly listed property developer PT Danayasa Arthatama is seeking loans to support its plan of constructing the Signature Tower, which is designed to be the tallest tower in the country and the fifth-tallest in the world.

“We will fund the tower with our equity and loans; probably a syndicated loan. We are in negotiations with several local and foreign banks,” Danayasa director Agung Prabowo said on the sidelines of the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting on Tuesday.

Agung declined to name the banks; neither did he reveal how much Danayasa aimed to raise in loans. He hinted, however, that the ratio of loans to internal cash to pay for the Signature Tower would be either 60 to 40 percent or 70 to 30 percent.

The Signature Tower, which will be 638 meters in height with 111 stories, is estimated to cost US$2 billion.

During the annual meeting, Danayasa’s shareholders approved that the company retain its earnings collected last year rather than disburse the money as dividends.

“We will use the funds to support the construction of the Signature Tower,” Agung said.

Danayasa booked Rp 72.7 billion (US$7.70 million) profit last year, a 63 percent drop from Rp 141.5 billion in 2010. The plunge was influenced by a 61 percent fall in revenue to Rp 688 billion in 2011 compared to Rp 1.11 trillion
in 2010.

This business setback continued into the first quarter of the year. Danayasa reaped only Rp 158.21 billion during January to March, a 24 percent drop from Rp 210.68 billion in the same period last year.

Danayasa saw increases in income from its hotel and telecommunications businesses; however, these could not compensate the sharp fall in its real estate business. The company saw revenue from real estate, particularly from the leasing of spaces in Pacific Place mall, drop 35 percent to Rp 81.48 billion in the first quarter of the year from Rp 125.46 billion in the same period last year.

Following declining revenue, the company’s net profits fell 64 percent to Rp 6.02 billion in the first three months of the year versus Rp 17.1 billion in the same period last year.

The company’s total assets were worth Rp 3.47 trillion by the end of the first quarter, with liabilities and equity at Rp 856.44 billion and Rp 2.62 trillion, respectively. Meanwhile, cash and cash equivalent stood at Rp 211.72 billion at the end of March. Agung said the company would lease spaces in the Signature Tower rather than sell it, to maintain recurring income.

Danayasa will start to build the Signature Tower later this year on 5.5 hectares of land. The construction is expected to be completed by 2020.

Agung said that the land for the building had been secured and was located in the company’s area in the Sudirman Central Business District (SCBD).

“From the start of the SCBD’s construction, we already had the master plan, including the construction of the Signature Tower. The tower will use lots 6 to 8 near Pacific Place mall. Existing building on the area [the lots] are only temporary,” Agung said.

Danayasa, whose controlling shareholder, PT Jakarta International Hotels & Development, with 63.22 percent ownership, is part of the Artha Graha network, which is a partnership network of private companies engaging in various industries, including property, banking and infrastructure.

Artha Graha’s chairman, Tomy Winata, said recently that the company had secured cooperation with MGM Hospitality to run the management of hotels, apartments and convention centers in the Signature Tower.
