I Understand Why Forest City Condos Are Often Vacant After a Night’s Stay

Forest City, a luxury development located in southern Malaysia, was built by China’s largest developer, Country Garden. The $100 billion project boasts impressive towering apartment buildings and a white-sand beach with views of industrial plants in Singapore.

During my first visit to Forest City in May 2022, I was surprised to find the estate mostly deserted, with dark windows in hundreds of apartments and few people on the roads or at the beach. Despite plans to house 700,000 residents in the next six years, only 9,000 people currently call the estate home.

In March 2022, I decided to stay overnight in one of the vacant apartments. I booked a homestay at a condominium unit for 70 Singapore dollars through a property manager. Similar units are available on Airbnb for as little as $38 a night.

The owner of the unit, based in China, declined to comment on my story due to privacy concerns. Despite multiple attempts to contact Country Garden regarding the status of Forest City, they did not respond to my queries from Business Insider. This raises questions about the future development and appeal of this grand project to potential residents.

Despite its impressive architecture and luxurious amenities, it seems that Forest City is struggling to attract residents despite its grand plans for growth. It remains an unpopulated estate that raises questions about its long-term viability as a residential community.
