History

edit

The township development started in 1998 by PT Jakarta Baru Cosmopolitan (JBC),[3] which is a joint venture by Keris Group (who is known for their Batik Keris brand) and a reputable developer, Summarecon.[4]

In 2004, to accelarate the development of Gading Serpong, Summarecon and Keris Group agreed to dissolve JBC, and separate the JBC's area equally, for each develop and manage their own respective area.[3][5] The Summaercon part is known as Summarecon Serpong, while the Keris Group area was then known as Ambassador Gading Serpong.[5] Both of the companies do not view each other as competitor, since both companies has a different view on development strategy.[5]

In 2006, Ambassador Gading Serpong is taken over by Paramount Lake, and rename the area as Paramount Land.[5]
