Market Overview

The Indonesian economy is expected to remain strong in 2019, with a projected GDP growth rate of nearly 5% to 5.4%. The long-term outlook for commercial real estate looks positive for Indonesia supported by solid economic growth,  and rising urbanization.

With the conclusion of the elections in the first quarter of 2019 and the completion of major infrastructure projects, it is expected that real estate market trends will continue to move in a positive direction in the country. Indonesia’s property investment market is currently going through a quiet period. While domestic investors are concerned about Jakarta’s commercial oversupply, international investors are constrained by regulatory hurdles in the country. 

The take-up in the office sector in the country witnessed a steady growth with the development of various office buildings across the country. Some of the significant office building construction deals included Treasury Tower in the Sudirman Central Business District in Jakarta, developed by Agung Sedayu Group; Casa Domaine Tower 1 and 2 in the KH Mas Mansyur area of Jakarta, developed by three construction groups (Salim Group, Lyman Group, and Kerry Group); and World Trade Center 3 in the Sudirman area of Jakarta, developed by Jakarta Land.

The development of infrastructure is expected to increase accessibility in the country. Indonesia’s first Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) network is also expected to be operational before the end of 2019, which will improve access to numerous commercial and residential developments in the CBD and South Jakarta. The MRT will also connect with the airport rail link and, later, with the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system to the center of the city.
