Finally some thing is happening on that construction site and Jakarta will have an icon that will give it more prominence in the ASEAN region.

Switzerland is incredibly rich and you don't see them building supertalls...

Take into consideration FDI, office space demand, height limits, Indonesia's huge economy (member of the G20) and it's strategic position in Asia. Indonesia is not necessarily a 'poor' country, its growth is forecasted to be 6.2% for this year when other developing nations are experiencing negative growth, like Russia. A nation's GDP per capita is not the catalyst for deciding how tall or buildings can be.

Is that something to be proud of?

Anyway, the tower would have been an interesting landmark. It's a shame it is on hold.

Well, if this guy can't find a country as big as Indonesia on the map, he's really an American Idiot.

Indonesia is a very big country, the distance from the west (Sabang, Sumatera) to the east (Meurauke, Papua) is more than 5000 km.

It's approximately same with the distance from New York to Los Angeles.

So much about prejudices and nationalist over-compensation springing from personal inferiority complexes. You all are a dumb lot and should be removed from the forum.

Indonesia's GDP is US$ 5600 Billion on 2008 (IMF, World Bank). and since 2008, Indonesia become a new member of G-20 within China, India, Russia, and Brazil. Group twenty (G-20) are extended of group eight (G-8) as a group of rich countries in the world including USA. than, aceflamingo, this's something important information for you as a people from the nation whic's in the same group with Indonesia. cheers

You think your country is still rich? Last I checked, US economy depends on money from China aka debt.

Change the design please! The current design is so '90. We don't want this landmark to be international mockery right?

The tower should at least have good interior shemes and completed in a good quality, even it's not tallest, old fashioned or as not as planned as it is supposed to be. I think the tower is making some progress now.
