The ‘New-order’ period of the time was characterised by a strong focus on economic development.[2] The project was initiated in 1984 by a group of private developers.[3] The town is implemented and managed by the holding company BSD PT, which is owned by Simasred, a subsidiary of the Sinar Mas Group, a large industrial conglomerate in Indonesia.[4] BSD City encompasses a total area of approximately 6,000 hectares.[5]The homes in the community are designed to be suitable for Indonesia's upper-middle class,[6] in gated neighbourhoods, each with a different theme.[7][8]
