I have noticed I occasionally typed in Tanjung Perak instead of Tanjung Hitam, sorry.... .
Fun fact: Tanjung Perak is the name of my city's port.
Kota Baru is a satellite new town located east of Tanjung Hitam, with a population of 4.500. Originally a small village named Desa Leko, the need for more housing and the development of industry to the east led to the development of Kota Baru. Composed of several clusters developed by different companies, it also contains a commercial strip, some offices, as well a Carrefour supermarket.
The original village. A part of the village has been turned into office area.
Part 1, we'll start off with clusters.
Puri Amalia Indah. This was the first cluster to be developed. Initially sold as cheap, and small land, the company that built the cluster started to build homes that are still standing, though some have been renovated.
Suryajaya Residence. The second cluster to be built, a small commercial district was built to the south as a part of the cluster.
Virginia Cluster, the third and most expensive cluster to be built. The large mansion is the home of a rich businessman who bought 4 houses and demolished them so he can build the mansion. Named as such due to the homes being styled after American homes.
Griya Mentari, the latest cluster to be built(as of this update). Also pictured, to the bottom of the image is the municipal offices of Kota Baru and a part of the commercial strip.
The commercial strip, the high school, the medical clinic(puskesmas), and the elementary school. The elementary school is a remnant from the village of Desa Leko.
Hope to see you next update!
