TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - PT PP Properti, a subsidiary of state-owned construction company PT Pembangunan Perumahan, is mulling over at expanding its business to the apartment industry.
"Demands for 15 million units of housing properties have not yet been fulfilled," PT PP Properti president director Galih Prananto said on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 in Jakarta.
Currently, PT PP Properti is running a string of megaprojects that include Grand Kamala Lagoon in Bekasi, Grand Sungkono Lagoon in Surabaya and Apartemen Gunung Putri Square in Bogor.
Galih projected the revenue from the Bekasi project could hit Rp6 trillion (US$500 million) in the first stage within five years. The company has set a target of Rp20 trillion (US$16.7 billion) in 15 years.
The project of Grand Kumala Lagoon has reportedly booked 69 percent pre-sale orders, while the company claimed it had sold almost 70 percent of the apartments units for Grand Sungkono Lagoon since its launch in April 2014. The other project in Bogor will be built on a-2.1 hectare of land plot.
PT Pembangunan Perumahan is planning to open an initial public offering (IPO) for 20-25 percent of its subsidiary stocks in 2015. The fund, pooled from the stock offering, would serve as additional capital in its property business.
