“This is a fresh idea where it will have a four layer development and the public will not see any vehicles on the road as Forest City will be filled with greenery on the top layer while roads and parking bays used by vehicles will be underground,” and “We will also provide an effective transportation system for more than 100,000 residents living there. Forest City will be a dream for the community to live and work there,” said Founder and Chairman of Country Garden Holdings, Yeung Kwok Keung.
