Jakarta 2 (6 months ago)
https://skyscrapercity.com/showthread...hlight=Jakarta

To be honest, i dont really like the skyline as a whole. Not dense enough and very spread out. So many holes and pockets. In addition there are many lower class (low density) areas right around the CBD. The reason why the skyline is so extensive and has so many pockets, is i think they were to ambitious in planning the city that they thought the area will fill up really fast and become dense. One fact about the CBD is that it was nothing before the 80's, they just planned and made the area during the 80's (Indonesia economy was skyrocketing due to oil). So this area is fairly new compared to many CBDs around the world.

The only good thing is that there are many well designed skysrapers here. A lot of exciting designs make the skyline at least a lot better. There are also many proposals with awesome designs (many canceled because of the asian crisis).

I rate Jakarta's skyline a 7/10. As time goes by it will improve, as many open areas will be filled.

The skyline is not as dense as other cities in Southeast Asia despite it is the most populated city. But the streets seem to be wide.
I like the first photo.

hehehe...the streets are only wide in those areas. Other parts, the streets are so narrow, but busy!! Most streets don't have a center median (island).

It's a suprise... 7/10

Indonesia's economy skyrocket from 1970-1985, then in 1985, the oil price drop drasticly therefore their economy plumet and together with the Asian Financial Crisis 1997, they are now lot poor. (correct me if I'm wrong)

I gave it a 7/10. There is still ALOT of potential for this city, which is capital of the largest muslim country in the world!
