With said projects on hand, S&P predicts that PWON's recurring income could reach IDR 4.5 trillion in 2023, even hitting IDR 4.8 trillion at most in 2024.

As of now, PWON manages a dozen of properties, including Gandaria City and Kota Kasablanka Superblock, Blok M Plaza, Tunjungan City Superblock, and Pakuwon Mall in various regions across Indonesia.
