Conveniently located at the Lorong Lew Lian and the hype that follows in the Singapore property news, this is a spot to reside if you need to live in one of many most busy country.

In summary, CDL has been always one of the prestigious developer in Singapore, and usually the locals are confident on this project by CDL. However, we believed each project should be assessed case by case as the contractors or sub-contractors are always different in every project. For example, the SEAVIEW condo developed by a famous developer has multiple serious flaws complained by the residents as reported read in 99.co.

On the other hand, it is arguable and does make sense that prestigious developer will normally engage a better upmarket contractors to construct the project which we think there is no reason CDL won’t do that.

Forest Woods condo, definitely make a good choice for anyone who loves this location, Lorong Lew Lian, Upper Serangoon.
