Anies Allows Jakarta Residents to Build Houses up to 4 Floors
The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government allows its residents to build houses up to four floors. This is one of the developments contained in the Detailed Spatial Planning (RDTR) for the DKI Jakarta planning area.
The regulation is stated in the Governor’s Regulation (Pergub) Number 31 of 2022 concerning the Detailed Spatial Planning (RDTR) for the DKI Jakarta planning area. In the previous RDTR regulation, Jakarta residents were only allowed to build houses with two floors.
“Now for residential houses, up to four floors will be allowed in our households in Jakarta,” said DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan when socializing the Pergub RDTR at DKI City Hall, Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
Anies explained that this policy was issued as an effort to optimize land in the capital city. He also hopes that the four-story house can encourage multi-family ownership in the same building.
The reason is, Anies often finds that in one family there are up to three children, but only has a residential area of 100 meters. So when the child grows up, he has to move or sell his house.
“Now she can add to the top, she can live together with her family. Her grandparents are downstairs, her two children are on the 2nd floor, 3rd floor, common room,” he explained.
The former Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud) believes that with this policy, Jakarta will not look flat. “But the city can increase its population higher, have a higher land value,” he said.
