Forest City, situated at the mouth of the river near the border of Malaysia and Singapore, is spanning about 20 square kilometers and will be an ecological and smart city created by Country Garden with its 24 years’ development experience and green concept joining hands with an international elite team.
Forest City is a reclaimed land from sea neighboring to Malaysia ecological wetland and the world’s second largest mangrove forest reserves (about 10,000 acres) and stretches tens of kilometers’ coastlines, thus becoming a global habitable land of clean water and air.
