The Branz Mega Kuningan is a residential project located in a prime area of Jakarta. It consists of one 45-story apartment and one 33-story condotel tower combined with an 11-story podium and a 1-level basement. The project encompasses a total development area of 120,000 square meters.
Envisioned by Tokyu Land and designed by Shimizu Corporation, the project aspires to bring in a unique urban development that incorporates advanced Japanese building technology and infuses the harmonious combination of a Tokyo/Jakarta living experience. The development features various upscale amenities, including a sky garden and pool on top of the podium.
Davy Sukamta & Partners was appointed as the structural engineer, working together with Shimizu Corporation to complete the design of the project. The structural system for the building is a reinforced concrete core wall with seismic moment frames, known for its desirable performance in regions vulnerable to high seismic activity.
The podium was strategically employed to structurally link the two towers. This creates a slender and efficient core wall configuration while minimizing lateral drift in the towers and providing more comfort for the occupants. A thorough coordination process was undertaken to tune the structural systems for desirable performance, without forgoing the architectural design.
Despite the challenging circumstances during the pandemic, construction work on the Branz Mega Kuningan project is unimpeded and steadily progressing. By the end of 2021, the podium structure is already taking shape well above the street level. When the project is completed, residents will have a premium view of the Sudirman CBD and Mega Kuningan area from their respective high-quality residential units. Equipped with various high-end facilities, Branz Mega Kuningan will bring a brand new Japanese lifestyle into Jakarta’s urban setting, surely making its way to become the leading residential development in the area.
