KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 14): Country Garden Pacificview Sdn Bhd (CGP), the master developer for the controversial Forest City project in Johor, has received the approval on its detailed environmental impact assessment (DEIA) from the Department of Environment (DoE).

In a statement, CGP said the DoE has accepted its proposed measures to minimise or mitigate environmental impacts through “integrated and workable solutions”.

With the approval, CGP’s executive director Datuk Md. Othman said the property developer's next step is to ensure “compliance monitoring” in carrying out the project works.

“Our next step is to ensure that all compliance monitoring, in terms of air, noise, water quality and sediment, are robustly implemented and carried out,” he said.

Md. Othman said one of CGP’s immediate priorities is to minimise the impact to the local communities and to ensure the surrounding ecology are well preserved.

He also expressed his appreciation to the relevant parties who have contributed to the DEIA.

Last week, The Malaysian Insider reported CGP’s denial that the size of its housing project had been limited to less than 1,000 acres, refuting the news portal’s earlier report on the matter.

The news portal had earlier quoted a source saying that the DoE verbally informed CGP of the new limits after complaints from locals and the Singapore government over the reclamation works in the narrow waterway between Malaysia and the republic.

CGP is a 60-40 joint-venture between China’s Country Garden Holdings Ltd and Esplanade Danga 88 Sdn Bhd. Esplanade Danga is said to have the Sultan of Johor and Johor state government as shareholders.

The controversial project entails 355ha of existing land along the Strait of Johor close to the Second Link to Singapore and the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) and the reclamation of another 1,620ha.

According to documents presented by CGP to the authorities sighted by The Edge, the gross development value (GDV) of Forest City will come up to RM600 billion over 30 years.

Whatever the reservations some people may have about this project, I suppose it it's going on, we may as well look at it positively. It will hopefully help to inject some glamour factor to Iskandar as it will be somewhat iconic. But, that's provided it gets off the ground and doesn't end up becoming a ghost town.

When gov has no more state land to sell off for profit, think of one way to make land appear to sell...... Poof! Like magic! Simple explanation.

Personally, I wouldn't want to buy property on rushed reclaimed land: Rising sea levels due to global warming will definitely flood many of these areas in the future. Notice that most of the builders are from China? I think most Malaysian developers are more cautious.

All sea/river facing land have been snapped up. So simple thing is to sell them sea-space since the Chinese developers are wiling to reclaim.

Conventional saying is that reclaimed land needs XX years to settle.. Has technology advanced such that it can be reduced to Y years?

dubai says can malacca and penang also say of course can. we gonna build 40-50 floors building on top of it

seriously, the reason is simple. reclaiming land is far more cheaper than buying ready "real" land.

The Forest City may need to renamed as Port City given so close proximity to PTP.

JOHOR BARU: The developers of the controversial Forest City project will start reclaiming land after the Chinese New Year holidays following the greenlight given last month by the Department of Environment (DoE).

Country Garden PacificView Sdn Bhd (CGPV), the master developer for the project, will commence work on the mega-project with a particular emphasis on conserving the surrounding areas environment.

CGPV executive director Datuk Md Othman Yusof said the developers will start by maintaining the Merambong seagrass bed which will be located in between the four linked islands of Forest City.

"We will allocate about RM3.5 million to maintain and conserve the seagrass bed as part of the project," he said at a luncheon held at Country Garden Danga Bay here today.

In addition to that, Othman added that the developers will also be replanting mangrove trees along the coastal area as part of its environmental commitment of the area.

"These are all part of our initiative to maintain and nature the surrounding environment together with the detailed environmental impact assessment (DEIA) report that has been approved by the DoE.

It is learnt that CGPV had embarked on such an initiative to minimise or mitigate environmental impacts through integrated and workable solutions.

Othman said all compliance monitoring, in terms of air, noise, water quality and sediment, will be seriously implemented and carried out.

"This is one of our immediate priorities to minimise the impact and ensure that the surrounding ecology are well preserved," he said.

Forest City is a cluster of four reclaimed islands, the biggest measuring 1,005ha, while the smallest is 58ha.

Forest City developer to restart work in February, pledges to preserve environment
BY EILEEN NG

Published: 1 February 2015 8:50 AM

The Forest City project in Johor ran into controversy last year when nearby residents, environmentalists and Singapore raised concerns over its massive reclamation works. – Pic courtesy of Country Garden Pacific View, February 1, 2015.
Developer Country Garden Pacific View (CGPV) is targeting to restart land reclamation works at its Forest City project in Johor this month after a seven-month halt by the Department of Environment (DOE) following environmental concerns, and has pledged to spend millions to preserve the surrounding seabed, including the sensitive 48.5ha seagrass area.
