South Jakarta (Indonesian: Jakarta Selatan) is one of the five administrative cities (kota administrasi) which form Special Capital Region of Jakarta, Indonesia. South Jakarta is not self-governed and does not have a city council, hence it is not classified as a proper municipality. It had a population of 2,057,080 at the 2010 Census, and is the third most populous among the five administrative cities of Jakarta, after East Jakarta and West Jakarta. The administrative centre is at Kebayoran Baru.

South Jakarta is bounded by Central Jakarta to the north, East Jakarta to the east, Depok to the south, West Jakarta to the northwest, and South Tangerang to the west.


In the days following World War II, South Jakarta was planned to be a satellite city (especially the Kebayoran Baru area) and by using the oriental concept. This area also contains some industrial centers for different types of commodities. South Jakarta is a prosperous administrative city compared to the others, with much middle-to-upper class housing and major business centres.[1] South Jakarta has the highest Human Development Index of all Jakarta's administrative cities, with an HDI index of 0.833.[2]

Much of the central business district is concentrated in Setiabudi, South Jakarta, such as Sudirman Central Business District (SCBD). Initially, SCBD was a service provider and real estate investment, but nowadays, it is becoming the most integrated mixed-use area in Indonesia.[3]
