The Pantai Indah Kapuk project in Jakarta, was criticized in interviews with various officials for its potentially negative environmental impact and incompatibility with existing regulations. According to a newspaper report, thi 1,160-hectare complex has long sparked controversy as it was built in 1989 on an area formerly covered by mangrove forest and swamps. The construction of the project was approved by then minister of forestry Hasjrul Harahap and then governor Wiyogo Atmodarminto. Several NGOs are planning to file a class action suit against the developer for causing floods in the nearby Penjaringan area. They accused the developer of violating the city’s land-use plan for building the complex on a protected green belt area. According to the city’s master land-use plan for 1985 and 2005, the location was still designated a green belt area. But it was changed into a residential area in 1995.
