Forest Park at Guangzhou South Station ICC, wholly-owned and developed by Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) and located in the core area of Guangzhou South Railway Station, recently received good news that Guangzhou became the first first-tier city this year to relax home-purchasing policies. Forest Park launched a new batch of units to let buyers grasp the opportunities. The investment potential of the Greater Bay Area is immense, particularly in the development of properties near transportation hubs. SHKP Club recently partnered with Forest Park to organise a property seminarA for its members, sharing various in-depth analysis about the project planning and features. The event received an enthusiastic response.
Forest Park, located in Guangzhou, the core city of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, is a scarce purely residential project within the master plan of Guangzhou South Station (GZSS). It is only about 400 metres away from the Station, and residents can reach it within 5 minutes by using the dedicated shuttle bus service.
Being the "Southern Gateway" of China, GZSS enjoys the benefit of 12 railway lines and five expressways for the new lifestyle of "one-hour living circle" in the Greater Bay Area. By taking the high-speed train, it takes a minimum of 45 minutes B to directly reach West Kowloon in Hong Kong and 30 minutes to reach other core business districts in Guangzhou. With the completion of more expressways and railways, the journey time to other business districts such as Zhujiang New Town and Changlong-Wanbo will be greatly shortened. Residents also have the option to take a shuttle bus between GZSS ICC and Forest Park, making it extra convenient to get around.
In 2021, SHKP acquired the development planning for the core areas at GZSS. Such integrated development comprises offices, a shopping mall, a hotel, serviced apartments, residential towers and public transport facilities, constituting a world-class, large-scale Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), and was named Guangzhou South Station ICC (GZSS ICC). This will bring new transit, working, shopping and living experiences to GZSS. Forest Park is a rare residential portion of the whole development with a total of approximately 1,300 units. The first batch of residential units is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025.
Adhering to SHKP's consistent high-quality handover standards, Forest Park offers units from two bedrooms with two living rooms to four-bedroom units with two living rooms and en-suites, ranging from around 68 to 162 square metres (around 730 to 1,740 square feet). All fitted units are suitable for both investment and personal living. Moreover, residents can enjoy various exquisite facilities at the two accompanied luxurious clubhouses, including an outdoor resort style pool, an indoor heated pool, Chinese and Western banquet rooms, a fitness centre and other recreational facilities. Forest Park is managed by SHKP's subsidiary Kai Shing, offering professional and thoughtful management services to residents. Project's on-sites show flats are open for viewing and please call the VIP hotline (86-020) 3882 0888 for making visit appointments.
The exclusive Greater Bay Area Property Investment Seminar for SHKP Club members was held earlier and proved to be very popular. We invited different experts to explain the overall planning and design features of Forest Park to members and their loved ones, introduce the development potential of the Greater Bay Area and property investment and opportunities from multifaceted perspectives, and share practical information and tips for Hong Kong residents in property purchase process at Mainland. The event was so fruitful and participants benefited greatly.
"We are interested to purchase new properties in the Mainland. Participating in this seminar enabled us to acquire information from various aspects, including Mainland policies and relevant property acquisition processes, which also deepened our understanding of the overall future planning for Guangzhou South Station ICC."
"The event allowed us to learn more about SHKP's latest property development in the Mainland, and understand the project concept, prospects, and transportation advantages of Forest Park. The examples cited by the speakers were practical and detailed with clear explanations. "
"I attended SHKP Club's activity for the first time, and I am very interested in the topic of property investment in the Greater Bay Area. The location of the seminar is convenient, and the content is rich. I hope to have the opportunity to visit Forest Park in-person in the future. "
