The United States government is planning to build a new Embassy on the site of its existing diplomatic compound in central Jakarta. The new Chancery will replace a complex of low-rise buildings which have become inadequate as the needs of the mission have grown. The new compound will allow the Embassy to consolidate US agencies on a single site in secure and modern facilities. In addition to a new ten story Chancery, the redeveloped compound will include a four story parking structure for 405 vehicles, a two story annex for facility maintenance support, a utility building, a US Marine Guard residence attached to the Chancery, an historic building reconstruction and three entry screening pavilions. Landscape integration, water mitigation, energy consumption, and solar heat gain have been addressed in the design to meet the US Department of State goal for this project of a LEED rating as established by the US Green Building Council.
