The rare opportunity to build and inhabit one’s own, ultra-luxury floating Private Island – almost anywhere in the world – is now being unveiled as a reality.
Waterstudio is building a community of 33 villas to float on top of the water so that they won’t be inundated by sea rise. Construction of the community – dubbed Amillarah – starts this month with developer Dutch Docklands off the coast of Dubai.
Each artificial island will vary from 150,000 square feet to 450,000 square feet and each one will feature one will feature a swimming pool complete with patio, trees, and landscaping.
The only way to reach these homes is via seaplane or boat, and if you’re worried about how much that costs, you should better sit down for this one, as at least $23 million will be required before floating away on the island of your dreams.
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. Buyers can design their own island, and each one is self-sufficient.
