Challenges

The client, Billion Property Development, needed a trusted engineering partner to develop an affordable mall design that would ensure a safe, accessible and pleasant shopping environment. The mall had to reflect the latest trend of being family entertainment centres and easily accessible with an appealing tenant mix and contemporary design.

To make their tight deadline of opening in May 2014, the developers entrusted WSP with the design and construction supervision of civil and structural engineering for Forest Hill City.

The mall has a retail area of approximately 70 000m² gross lettable space, including 190 stores, restaurants, A-grade office space, two hotels and high-end apartment blocks – all set in a safe, urban hub environment.
