You can now buy a floating home in the Caribbean. Properties on the man-made Blue Estate island, which will float on the Caribbean Sea have started going on sale from today.
These floating Caribbean homes will cost you about £14,600 for a budget ‘Ring Level’ studio apartment, but increase up to £1.1billion for its ‘Signature Estate’ mega-mansions.
Dreams don’t cost a thing, keep reading!
The floating city will just be a short trip from Miami and the Bahamian Islands, giving the island full 340 days of sunshine around the year.
The homes won’t go under construction until 2020 but will be ready to hand-over by 2023, with full completion until 2025.
The island, which is to be built from ‘ultra-high performance’ concrete modules, will measure 4921ft by 3280ft in total, an area half the size of Monaco.
The city will be ultra-stable, promising its residents they won’t feel even the tiniest of movement.
The floating city will be home to more than 15,000 permanent residents, numerous businesses, a state-of-the-art health clinic, and an international school.
The city will be guarded by 160ft tall walls that will secure residents from the fiercest of Caribbean waves and currents. Automated hurricane shutters will shield the residents from strong winds.
The developers aim to use renewable sources to maintain a negative CO2 output, to make it one of the dreamiest sustainable places ever!
They also plan to create a business-friendly environment with zero taxes and minimal regulations.
