The closest relative Forest City has is the Green Heart in Singapore, an apartment complex whose floors and main atrium are an enormous ode to nature. Construction began in 2012.

Cars would be parked underground to keep the main streets cleaner and quieter.

Whether a project as large as Forest City manages to get off the ground is up in the air, but its instincts seem to be pointed in the right direction.
