Note: The city is still under construction and not settled yet. All establishment in the industrial park are still closed.
Salak is a city orginally founded as an industrial hub. Located inland, the mighty Baritan River snakes through the plains and valleys of the city. Bordered by the Bani Mountains in the east and by the Sablig Mountains in the center, the Salak Valley has become a strategically located place for trade and industry. A huge industrial park was built in the eastern bank of Baritan River. The park houses several high-density manufacturing and high-tech companies. It also has a small business district at the southern area to facilitate the management of trade and business in the area. At the southeastern area is the Sumapa Harbor, a district developed for heavy industries. Salak is poised to be one of the important trade hubs in the region.
Currently, there are four identified districts, all on the eastern border --
1. Hilagang Ligas - developed for agriculture and low-cost housing
2. Timog Ligas - developed for manufacturing and high-tech industries
3. Bulihan - small business district and temporary financial center
4. Sumapa Harbor - developed for heavy industries
A southeastern district where a small harbor of the same name is located. This is the only district developed for heavy industries. Before development, the area is heavily forested and many Salak trees were found - which the city was named for. Oil deposits were discovered at the foot of Bani Mountains. Since then, several oil refineries and other factories were established. A small harbor was built along the east bank of Baritan River. Large chunk of river was reclaimed making this part of the river the narrowest. Quarry took place when they also discovered mineral deposits. Quarrying took toll to the natural beauty of Samapa Harbor district because the mountainside was destroyed. Alongside the water pollution brought about by the oil depot, the factories produce heavy smog. This is the most polluted part of the city. Current efforts are underway to clean and green this part of the city.
It is an eastern district of Salak and serves as a minor business district. This is the first business district built in the city that also functions as the temporary financial hub. With the increasing wealth of the city, a new business and financial hub is proposed to be built in the center of Salak Valley. At the moment, several companies put up branches in this district. Although there are no regional headquarters at the moment, this city is poised to threaten and compete with the established trade cities in the region.
It is an eastern district of Salak. It is bordered by the Bani Mountains in the east, and the Baritan River in the west. The district is developed as a first-class industrial park. This is where most of the manufacturing and high-tech buildings are located. It is also famous for its beautifully-designed urban plazas where city residences and workers can relax and enjoy the wealth of the city. At the heart of the district is the Arc of Industry, one of the famous landmarks in the city. The arc symbolizes the rapid economic growth of the city.
It is a northeastern district of Salak. Originally merged with Timog Ligas when the city was settled, it was made a separate district that is planned to become one of the agricultural area of the city. The southern area also houses some of the manufacturing companies. The northern area is still being developed for agriculture and some low-cost residences. The district is also ideal for business as three highway interchanges are found here.
