Sustainable happiness with The Forestias

In this fast-moving World where everyone constantly busy at work, dealing with so many kinds of difficulties that we might forget the last time we share our smile or laugh with our loved ones. Hence, we might start wondering, “What is the real happiness in our lives?”

This simple question provoked MQDC the idea of creating World’s first project that meet enhance the well-being of every generation and provide sustainable happiness.

Happiness may be different for each person, but one simple thing that most people need is just to be happy with oneself, others and surroundings.

In order to create sustainable happiness, MQDC joined forces with global partners such as Foster + Partners which provided consultancy on the architectural master plan, EEC Engineering Network, which helped research and develop systems in the buildings based on MQDC's concept of Sustainnovation, Atelier Ten for sustainability systems, ITEC Entertainment for experience and entertainment, Six Senses for hospitality and residential management, and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for healthy living and well-being.

Further, we also apply 9 Sustainability Concepts in our project.

Nature & Animals
Before the construction begins, we had discovered over 53 plant species and 123 animal species within the project area. With our sustainability concept, we will let human and all living things live happily in harmony with the natural world without interrupting the balance of ecosystem.

Community & Intergeneration
All generations can meet up, spend time together, bridge the generation gap and make the community a better place to live.

Livable Neighborhood
We facilitate all residents with connectable areas. Everyone can make use of common areas and get to know more of one another.

Health, Well-Being & Happiness
Living among good environment and rich aroma from surrounding trees can contribute to a better quality of life which is a key to sustainable happiness. Besides, there are forest pavilion for physical and emotional treatment and health center to provide emergency and primary health care to patients.

Innovative Energy System
All energy consumption within the project are renewable which means we can help save energy resources efficiently, prevent global warming and reduce environmental pollution within the project. Furthermore, we control thermal energy storage, chilled/hot water supply by using Central Utility Plant (CUP) which lead to the reduction in 2-3 °C temperature as well as the massive amount of CO2 emission per year.

Integrated Water Management
All waste water can be recycled and used for watering plants which help saving fresh water resources.

Transport & Active Mobility
Besides surrounding the project area with flourish trees, The Forestias will also become a smart town where all residents can travel elsewhere by driverless shuttle bus.

Materials & Resources
All materials and resources used in the project are free from toxic, Carcinogenic. Besides, we ensure to make use of all materials efficiently and economically.

Education & Discovery
The Forestias will become more that a resident area as we input plenty learning centre areas in the project for young children to develop infinite learning skills and foster healthy relationship with their families.
