Tallest buildings built and proposed in Jakarta

Today many cities in Southeast Asia are experiencing an unprecedented construction boom, in which a bunch of skyscrapers beyond 200 meters including many supertalls are under construction and proposed, some notable cities are Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila, and Indonesian capital Jakarta is another of them.

For 200-meter-add buildings, there are over 50 such kind of buildings, the amount is the most in Southeast Asia, about 2 times of Kuala Lumpur, though the latter has more supertalls. There were 7 of those 200-meter-add buildings completed in Jakarta in the year of 2015, this number was the most among all the cities in the world, even those Chinese cities are behind Jakarta, though the total number for the whole nation is far more than other countries, in terms of single city, Nanning built 6 200-meter-add buildings in 2015, it's the most among all the Chinese cities, but still one less than Jakarta.

For 300-meter-add buildings, Jakarta also plays a prominent role, even the city still has no a supertall built yet, the city has many proposals for supertall, the amount of them is more than most of the cities in the world, the highest one of these proposed buildings stands 638 meters tall, and there are the other one beyond 500m.

Peruri 88 is a supertall project that has 88 floors proposed in 2012, but still no progress occurred until today, so it's considred a stale proposal. Plus its design is so surreal that makes people to think it's too good to be true, it may ends up being just a vision.
