Urban sprawl is eating up Seminyak, Kerobokan and beyond. Years ago, in Legian they said, “We’ll never be like Kuta! So crowded! Such a mess!” Then in Seminyak, they said, “We’ll never be like Legian!” And in Petitenget they said, “We’ll never be like Seminyak!” But the advance of urbanization in South Bali seems unstoppable now.
Here’s another apartment project in Petitenget, located on land beside the planned highway connecting Sunset Road in Seminyak to Tabanan Regency. The five-story apartment complex is composed of a “playful” arrangement of boxes, grouped in compounds and set at the back of the 71 are lot, away from the highway.
So, here we go, folks. Petitenget may soon resemble Jakarta.
