So finally its out, that 336,000 residential units that are "in the pipeline" are actually coming from the proposed Forest City development by Country Garden.
According to the report, the reclaimed Forest City project consists of four man-made islands with a total land area of 1,386ha and will offer wealthy international buyers luxury homes by the Strait of Johor.
So, they are planning to build 336,000 residential units on this 4 little islands with a total land area of only 1,386ha or 14km2 !
I suppose this should be including areas for retail business, commerce, entertainment and parks for sports and recreation.
Just trying to make a simple comparison here.
Toa Payoh - total area 4.63km2
Residential units - 36,000.
Forest City - Total area 14 km2
Residential units - 336,000
Forest City is only 3 times larger than Toa Payoh in area but is proposing to build about 10 times more units!
So, can you imagine the density of Forest City, it will be more than 3 times the density of Toa Payoh!
Would anyone want to pay good money to move into a supposedly upmarket residential estate in Johor with a density 3 times higher than Toa Payoh??
