    Abstract

    Surabaya is the second largest city in Indonesia, and half of the city at the eastern part has a coastline that extended from the north to the south. In 1990’s, three developers have been granted to develop the area of 3,200 hectares, the so-called the East Coast of Surabaya. The East Coast of Surabaya is inherently vulnerable to climate change impacts such as rising sea level, changes in rainfall. These impacts would put this coastal area at greater risk of flooding, land subsidence, and sinking land. Therefore, before the area can be developed for residential area, some studies have to be done, namely environmental study, transportation study, hidrology study, and soil investigation to cope with issues, such as accessibility, flooding, soil settlement, and land reclamation. This article aims to show that these environmental issues of the East Coast of Surabaya is not a constraint for development, and it argues that coping these environmental issues with open space namely retention ponds, canals, green open space such as mangrove coastline zone and parks are indeed added value for residential development namely economic benefits. The economic benefit of the residential area is the increasing of land price significantly.
