Kota Tua is located in the historic heart of Jakarta and contains a number of cultural heritage sites. These include buildings and canals that were constructed during the 17th century colonial period. These sites serve as tourist attractions and contribute to the city's economic, social and cultural growth. Despite its rich cultural heritage, the area has declined as it suffers with poor infrastructure and service provision.

The city government of Jakarta has instituted a comprehensive development plan in inclusive and participatory way to renew the neighbourhood's vibrant atmosphere, improve the standard of living for citizens and revitalise the economy. The plan includes a proposal to apply for UNESCO World Cultural Heritage status. Unfortunately, it hasn't been categorized in UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. If successful, the revitalization program will be accelerated in developing Kota Tua as a more attractive destination to both domestic and international tourists further contributing to its overall economic growth.

2. TOD Dukuh Atas Interchange

Dukuh Atas TOD is located in Central Jakarta. This Transit Oriented Development (TOD) project is first inaugurated in April 2019 and planned to be finished by end December 2021. In the near future, this area is anticipated to be equipped with various mass transportation modes such as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), MRT, Light Rapid Transit (LRT), and a pedestrian / bicycle network. It is expected to be an interconnected area between diverse transportation modes and pedestrian friendly environment. This area is a well-known transit location with three major nodes, including Sudirman Station (Greater Jakarta Train Network), TransJakarta's Dukuh Atas 2 stop, and BNI City Station (Airport Train Network). Jakarta MRT is inaugurated and opened for public on March 2019, making this area the perfect example for TOD development.

Kampung Akuarium / Source:

Kampung Akuarium (Kampong/Sprawl Settlement) is located in North Jakarta and is a highly dense urban sprawl settlement. This place is dominated by immigrants, mostly from Java Island. Historically, this place was located in a region called Sunda Kelapa and was the settlement of The Indonesian Academy of Sciences (LIPI) workers. After 1978, the area continuously changed functionally. Initially used as a dormitories for police officers, it was eventually abandoned and sold to immigrants. Mostly fisher folks and port labourers, immigrants settled in this area in the hopes of finding better opportunities in Jakarta. The urban form of Kampung Akuarium was inevitably, but slowly, transformed into a slum settlement after the arrival of immigrants. In 2015, there was a plan to revitalise the area as a new urban settlement; however, the lingering question-and a subject of debate in recent times-is why the plan never materialised.
