China is building a $100 billion city in Malaysia just across the border from Singapore, in Johor Bahru, a city bordering Singapore. Chinese investors are betting it will sooner or later become the next Shenzhen.

Chinese companies found the Iskandar zone a prime and special economic zone to meet their investment objectives, the size of the construction is three times the size of Singapore, on the southern tip of the Asian mainland.

According to the company, constructions include Office towers, parks, hotels, shopping malls and an international school, all draped with greenery landscape and much more began on the site in February from which about 8,000 apartments have been sold.The construction is named Garden Forest City because it is built on four artificial islands, that can house about 700,000 people in an area three times the size of New York’s Central Park.
