BATAM, Indonesia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/billionaire?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#billionairelt;/agt;–(PT. Pollux Barelang Megasuperblok) As Batam continues to transform
itself from a manufacturing center into a international property and
tourism hub, international investors will be buoyed with the launch of
the ultra-luxurious Erleseen Tower by PT Pollux Properti Indonesia Tbk
Boasting 385 units of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units, the luxury penthouse
collection will further enhance Batam’s reputation as a rising
investment and tourism destination in the region. The Erleseen Tower
will rival Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands with its own sky pool and lounge
which will provide sweeping vistas of the surrounding islands.
The Erleseen Tower is part of US$ 1 billion B.J. Habibie Superblock
development. PT Pollux Barelang Megasuperblok, or commonly known as
Pollux Habibie International, is a collaboration between PT Pollux
Properti Indonesia Tbk. and the family of former President of Indonesia,
“Batam has always been close to my heart as from its very beginning we
envisioned it as a bridge between Indonesia and the world,” said former
president B.J. Habibie. “In the beginning we started with attracting
manufacturing investments and it was a very successful as today Batam
today is a major center for heavy industries.”
The former president added that the Meisterstadt development will enable
Batam to undertake the second phase of development into an international
investment and tourism destination.
“We must continue to innovate, to develop and to progress. I am very
happy and very proud to be part of this development project as
Meisterstadt is a concrete example of what Batam can achieve if we have
the courage and the vision to think big,” said Mr. Po Sun Kok.
Just as the iconic Barelang Bridge has come to define Batam and improved
connectivity between Batam and the islands to its south, Meisterstadt
will define the Batam of the future.
Meisterstadt, a collaboration between Indonesia real estate tycoon Po
Sun Kok and Indonesia’s third President B.J. Habibie, is only one of
several world class projects undertaken by Pollux Properti Indonesia Tbk.
The two men established the joint venture commonly known as Pollux
Habibie International and Po wants to
develop the nine hectare site into a landmark project in Batam.
Po, who established a garment business in Semarang in the early 1970s
has emerged in recent years as one of Indonesia’s most innovative
property developers. Pollux Properti is one of few Indonesian companies
that has a regional presence with operations in Singapore and Indonesia.
Batam will be a major statement of intent for Po and Pollux Properti
given the scale and economic impact that Meisterstadt will have on the
islands’s economy as it seeks to transition from heavy industries to
tourism and services.
Situated just 30 minutes by ferry from Singapore, Batam is seen by
investors as a future Shenzhen, a manufacturing hub supported by
services. It can act as a base for international investors and
businesses who want to access Indonesia’s vast domestic market much as
Hong Kong does for China.
“As a property development company, PT Pollux Properti Indonesia Tbk.
has the ambition to create world-class projects,” said Po Sun Kok,
Chairman of PT Pollux Properti Indonesia Tbk. “We strongly believe that
Meisterstadt will position Pollux Properti as one of the most innovative
property developers in Indonesia and the region.”
The Meisterstadt is a nine hectare multi-functional development project.
It will feature 11 skyscrapers including 8 apartment towers with 6500
units, 1 five star hotel, 1 international hospital, shopping mall, shop
houses and 1 landmark tower with a plan of 100 floors. The Gross Project
Development cost exceeds US$900 million for what is to be the largest
project in Batam. The area is designed with reference to the standard
German city which integrates apartment buildings with offices and
