One of the projects that will benefit from infrastructure development is Vida Bekasi (140 ha) on Jalan Raya Siliwangi (Jalan Raya Narogong), Bekasi. The 12 km toll road from North Bekasi to Cibubur will have a JORR 2 toll gate in the area of Cileungsi and Japek Selatan in Bantar Gebang which is located close to Vida Bekasi.
"We can imagine an area like Narogong between two JORR 2 and Japek Selatan toll roads. So like Casablanka in South Jakarta that connects Sudirman with Rasuna Said. This situation will make this area for the next 5-10 years become an integrated business area in Bekasi, "said Ardzuna Sinaga, Director of Urban +, a consultant working on the revitalization plan for the Narogong area, through a press release in Bekasi, Thursday (09/20/2018) .

According to Edward Kusma, Director of Vida Bekasi, his office has prepared a 15 ha special area to be built into the Vida Bekasi town center.
"This crowd center will be built integrated with public spaces on the shores of artificial lakes. The concept is to accommodate a variety of public activities that are equipped with lifestyle centers, hospitals, campuses, offices, hotels, apartments, etc. so that here it can be like Mega Kuningan in Jakarta, "he said.
Citing Jasa Marga data, the JORR 2 toll road of the Cimanggis-Cibitung toll road is targeted to operate by the end of 2019, while the Japek toll road will begin construction in the Sadang area, Purwakarta, in 2019. Head of Planning for the Bekasi City Spatial Planning Erwin Guwinda provide another illustration regarding the development of the Narogong area into CBD.

"The exact height cannot be more than 20 floors with an area tailored to the needs of the community. Narogong is expected to be able to complement other existing business areas, but the arrangement must be better for both utility and drainage. So aspects of new city growth must be in accordance with environmental aspects, "he said.
