Dubai to get floating homes

Dubai to get floating homes

New Living on Water will give a Middle East debut to its floating residences

August 11, 2016: Dubai has earned a global reputation for launching unique and spectacular real estate projects, and a Dutch developer hopes the emirate will now provide a successful springboard for stunning floating homes designed to take their owners back to nature.

The company, New Living on Water (NLW), will give a Middle East debut to its striking organic shaped floating residences at Cityscape Global next month, and is expecting regional sales worth US$50 million over the first 12 months, and at least double that in 2017-18.

While many new projects will be unveiled on the Cityscape exhibition floors at Dubai World Trade Centre from 6-8 September, NLW believes it has a star attraction thanks to a combined focus on luxury, privacy, environmental sustainability and renewable energy.

“A lot of people nowadays live in very densely populated areas, and for most of them this is no problem in everyday life,” said NLW’s managing director and co-owner, Menno de Roos. “But the need for some privacy and the inner need of being connected to nature has always been with us, and that’s what we’re offering.

“Our newly-developed floating homes guarantee privacy as well as close connection with nature that people often look for. Additionally, they will have the comfort of being part of a six-star super luxury beachfront resort.”

“The homes have been developed for a niche-market, and designed with sustainability in mind in order to create mutual respect between humans and environment. Renewable energy sources are used as much as possible,” said de Roos.

The floating homes have been developed by NLW in cooperation with CIG, an industrial conglomerate engaged in shipbuilding, constructional design and production for complex architectural projects and the renewable energy industry worldwide.

They will join a huge range of projects brought together by the 15th edition of Cityscape Global which will span across 41,000sqm of exhibition space.
