Magnolia Quality Development Corporation (MQDC) says progress on its 125-billion-baht green development project, The Forestias, is 95% completed in terms of utilities and tunnelling work, raking in 4 billion baht in booking deposits.

The development's 1.4-billion-baht "Forest Pavilion" will be open to the public in the first quarter of 2021 to showcase sample residential units as well as demonstrate the overall concept of The Forestias.

Located on Bang Na-Trat Road KM7, The Forestias includes multiple residential components with villas and condos on 398 rai.

The project also includes commercial space for offices, a sports complex, lifestyle activities, retail and food and beverage outlets, family entertainment facilities, a town centre for community activities and cultural pursuits, a theatre, an event hall and multiple markets.

A highlight of the project is a 30-rai forest at the centre of the development and a 1.6km canopy walkway that links many of the development's components and provides a nature walk that weaves above the forest.

"The Forestias is a new global prototype for town development," said Kittiphun Ouiyamaphun, project director of The Forestias.

"It has been designed and is being built by some of the world's most respected experts and organisations to ensure that every aspect promotes a healthier and better quality of life."

The Forest Pavilion, with a functional area of around 6,500 square metres, was created under MQDC's collaboration with architect Foster + Partners Thailand.

ITEC Entertainment (US), the creator of entertainment experiences for Disneyland, DisneySea and Universal Studio, developed experiences and recreational activities inside the project. VAVE Studio of Germany created experiential stories and Bug Studio of Thailand contributed multi-disciplinary designs.
