Metro Star: Another Abandoned Project Showing Signs Of Reconstructing
Another project not owned by Viva Land, but has the same feature of being abandoned for a long time, Metro Star of C.T Group is showing signs of rebuilding.
Metro Star has just completed a part of the foundation
Communication by the developer, C.T Group, will complete the project in 2022.
However, reality shows that with the current progress, the project can hardly be achieved as advertised.
