Luxury Anthropocene: Dubai gets its first private floating islands

11 June of 2015 by

Completely stable on the water, the base of the island is built to last for far over 100 years and will create a new underwater habitat for sea life, the company states, adding, it is building similar islands in Maldives and in Miami in the US.Dubai’s “The World”, a man-made archipelago of islands arranged like a world map, is now spawning private floating homes. The “luxury floating private islands” will be designed to specific client wishes, and reportedly will all come with a pool. Developed by Amillarah Private Islands, these aren’t in fact the only floating-homes being developed in The World – Kleindienst Group is selling “floating seahorses”, with submerged bedrooms and bathrooms. Just don’t call it a houseboat.
