As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the demand for innovative and sustainable living spaces is on the rise. One company that is taking the lead in creating the future of living and working is Country Garden Group, with its flagship project, Forest City, located in the southern-most tip of Peninsular Malaysia, bordering Singapore. Founded in 1992, Country Garden Group is one of China’s leading real estate developers, known for its world-class residential, commercial, and tourism properties. With Forest City, Country Garden is once again pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the realm of real estate development.
A Unique, Futuristic City
Spanning 30km2 and comprising four man-made islands, Forest City is a unique, futuristic city that combines environment, technology, and cutting-edge design to create an ideal, idyllic, and technology-driven living and working space ecosystem. The city is designed to be a smart and green environment where residents can live, work, and play without ever having to leave the city’s boundaries.
The city’s design is the brainchild of Country Garden Group’s Chairman, Mr. Yeung Kwok Keung, who envisioned a desired living paradise and a great place to enjoy life. Forest City is the realization of this vision, with its perfect climate, sea views, clear blue skies, and fresh air all year round. The city is covered with idyllic parks and has no vehicular traffic, forming an ideal environment where everyone can enjoy the sun, a swim, or a carefree stroll.
Life in Forest City is exciting, with smart technologies powering everything from food and entertainment to work and leisure. The city has a comprehensive and connected smart island experience that encompasses innovative living technologies, personalized service, and community events.
Forest City’s one-stop service platform, Forest Life App, offers convenient access to a variety of community services. Entertainment options are available through Readlife, Malaysia’s first cloud-based community digital library. Meanwhile, Malaysia’s first smart robot service community, Canbot, is on hand to provide residents with multilingual support and welcome guides.
The city also utilizes the latest smart security systems to ensure its residents are safe, including smart doors and elevators that use facial and fingerprint recognition, and invisible electric fencing. The Forest Life App also allows for remote video intercom communication, door unlocking and alarm triggers, as well as real-time streaming of public areas.
To ensure residents integrate seamlessly into community life, Forest City has devoted most of its manpower to the positions of butler, aiming to cultivate an intimate relationship with each property owner. With residents from over 30 countries, Forest City has also organized multicultural events to encourage cultural exchanges.
Forest City is ready to welcome new residents to over 9,000 new homes. Following the completion of the Starview Bay complex in May 2019, this development will allow an additional 6,500 residents to move into one of the world’s most innovative new cities.
