“Song Saa Reserve, is a small eco community. When I say small, I mean it’s over 600 acres, so let's say a small town located in Cambodia near the Angkor Wat Temple. It's basically a self-sustaining eco community that will be hospitality, residential retail, and art space. It will generate its own energy on site. It will source its own groundwater and it is currently the largest living community challenge vision plan certified projects in the world. We'll go on to be the largest, fully certified Living Community Challenge Project at the end.”
