Industrial city or estate refers to the kind of specific area that is built with the concept of business area that concentrated around industrial factories and offices for industrial development purposes. An industrial city is usually located on the outskirts of a city. It is normally provided with good transportation access, including road and the rails and various adequate facilities such as entertainment centers, commercial facilities, business centers, and the development of residential areas which also built to facilitate and provide comfort for workers and residents who live in the industrial area.

1. The efficiency of Time, Cost, and Energy
The higher price, living cost, and crowd in Jakarta are the factors most people choose to live in Greater Jakarta. This makes industrial cities that are located around the city center an efficient and effective solution for a financial, time, and labor perspective. Also, for workers who work in the industrial area, a house that is located close to the workplace is everyone’s cream, as they can save energy, time, and cause when leaving or returning from work. Moreover, if the residential in the industrial area is built with well-planned development that provides comfort for residences, it will attract more customers’ attention outside of workers to invest in the industrial area.
2. Adequate Infrastructure and Facilities
Accessibility is an important factor to consider when choosing a house. The development of adequate infrastructure in the area is a determining factor of the increasing price of the property in the future. Complete and integrated infrastructure provides an opportunity for investors to save costs because they no longer need to build infrastructure from scratch. Also, later on, residents in industrial areas would not have to bother traveling back and forth to the city center as the facilities in the industrial area already complete, from schools, hospitals, business centers, shopping, and entertainment centers to hotels and recreation areas.
3. Better Investment in the Future
With all the adequate facilities available in the industrial area and accessible transportation infrastructure around it, it is common sense that the industrial city has high Property value growth. Investing in residential properties such as houses or apartments in industrial areas also has a great opportunity to be rent or sold later, as the customer market is so promising from industrial workers, offices, infrastructure projects, to expatriates from multinational companies who work in these industrial areas. Imagine if half of them need a place to live or rent, it will make the investment value of the property continue to increase and give them added value for businesses in the industrial area.
