The flats in the Cilincing building were founded in 1996 by the Indonesian state-owned port company PT. Pelindo. Originally built to provide local housing for dockworkers, it soon became a relocation site for families from cleared slums. Only 25 years later, the flats have fallen into disrepair. According to the residents, the management never carried out any renovation work. Indeed, the condition of the roof of Block A seems anything but solid and water leaks from the perforated roof when it rains. Moreover, although many residents take care to keep their houses clean, there is a lot of rubbish lying around. In addition, the Cilincing Flats also have security problems, including motorbike theft.
