Touted as the next Shenzhen, Forest City is located just across the north western tip of Singapore. It is part of the ongoing Iskandar development in Johor, Malaysia.
The scale of the mega project is mind boggling. Forest City will house 700,000 people on reclaimed land, with a land size 4 times the size of New York’s Central Park. Forest City is a joint venture between China and Malaysia with a cost of $100 Billion to build. The China developer is Country Country which has a track record in Malaysia incuding Danga Bay, another mega project in Iskandar.
