Therefore, continued James, Lippo Group is truly making a new breakthrough through Meikarta, so that it can be an inspiration for all property businesses. The project occupies 500 hectares of land in the easternmost part of Cikarang, Bekasi, West Java. The land has been controlled by the Lippo Group since the 1990s when the business dragon began the initiation of the industrial-based independent city of Lippo Cikarang. In this new city, James explained, the plan would be to develop 100 tall buildings with a height of about 35 to 45 floors each. The 100 buildings are divided into 250,000 residential units, strata title offices, 10 five-star hotels, shopping centers and commercial areas of 1.5 million square meters. Facilities that will complement it include health centers, educational centers with domestic and foreign providers, places of worship, and others.
