Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Nusantara Capital City Authority (OIKN) on Thursday informed that two new investors have obtained a project initiative permit (SIPP) for building residences for state civil apparatuses (ASN) in Nusantara, East Kalimantan.

The two new investors are the PT Perintis Triniti Properti Tbk Consortium (Consortium Triniti) and PT Nindya Karya.

The Triniti consortium and Nindya have obtained an SIPP to build ASN housing together with three other previously approved investors, OIKN Head Bambang Susantono said in a written statement received in Jakarta on Thursday.

Triniti Consortium will invest Rp1.8 trillion in seven towers and Nindya Rp1.42 trillion for building eight towers.

"With the addition of two investors building ASN housing, it is believed that it can accelerate the development of the Nusantara, so that next year, ASN can start moving," he said.

The three investors that earlier received SIPP were PT Summarecon Agung Tbk (Summarecon), Consortium Nusantara (RBN CCFG), and Korean Land and Housing Corporation (KLHC). The investors are targeting to complete their work by 2024.

President Director and CEO of PT Perintis Triniti Properti Tbk Ishak Chandra said he wanted to make a positive contribution to IKN.

"We are very grateful for OIKN's trust in the Triniti Land Consortium to help build the Nusantara capital. Hopefully, with the support of all parties and stakeholders, we can make a positive contribution to the government in participating in building the national capital," he added.

Meanwhile, President Director of PT Nindya Karya Haedar A. Karim said that Nindya is committed to always supporting the government in national development.

He added that Nindya has also received financial support from Danareksa as the holding company.

"Nindya invested Rp1.42 trillion, where Nindya as member holding (of) Danareksa fully received financial support from parent holding Danareksa," he said.

The business scheme for the two investors was public-private partnership (PPP). Under the PPP scheme, there will be risk-sharing between the government and investors along with incentives and penalties for its implementation in the provision of services and or public infrastructure.

"It is ensured that with the PPP scheme, the state will not be harmed at all," said Susantono.

The two investors will build ASN residences in different areas. The Triniti Consortium will build in the West Residence WP1A-1 area and Nindya in the West Government area WP1A-1.

Susantono informed that the need for ASN housing is quite large, with accommodations required for 16,990 ASN by 2024, and their number will continue to grow every year. Therefore, investment opportunities in ASN housing are still very open.
