    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The tallest apartment building in Sidoarjo will soon be developed by PT Masyhur Sejahtera, the developer of Kahuripan Nirwana Village (KNV) residential area, in close cooperation with PT Wijaya Karya.

    "Once all permits are issued, we will begin the development of our new apartment called the Taman Sari Prospero Kahuripan Nirwana Village Apartments," said Director of PT Wijaya Karya Nur Al Fata, Saturday, November 29, 2014.

    Al Fata said that the apartment will consist of three 28 story towers. "One tower will consist of 550 [apartment] units," he said.

    The apartments, Al Fata added, will be developed over a 1.2 hectare land. "Each unit will cost approximately Rp 190 million," he said.

    The reason that this location was chosen is due to the easy access to the toll roads that connect Surabaya and Gresik. "Getting to Juanda International Airport only takes 24 minutes, and to Bugurasih Terminal takes only 19 minutes," said Al Fata. The ease of access will ensure that the project can compete with apartments in Jakarta, Bandung, Bekasi and Manado.
