World first: Floating Seahorse Villas will let Dubai buyers own ocean plots

08 February 2019

property developer, Kleindienst Group, has said in a statement that its
Floating Seahorse Villas have been registered as villas by Dubai’s government
authorities, which could potentially mean that owners will be able to own ocean
plots for the first time in the world.

developer said that it had obtained approvals from both the Dubai Land
Department (DLD) and Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) for the Villas.
Out of 131 units, it will hand over 78 units in 2019, with each Villa priced at
$5.45 million.

statement added that the Floating Seahorse Villas will only be known as Villas.
They are being developed by the group’s Heart of Dubai development. Each villa
spans more than 371.6 m2 across three levels.

the company claimed that buyers of the floating villas would be able to own the
ocean plot beneath the structures. However, it added that this was subject to
authority approval.

registration of The Floating Seahorse Villas as a Villa is the first step to
enabling people to have a title deed to their own piece of ocean. It will make
true ocean-living a reality for the first time in the world,” said Josef
Kleindienst, founder and chairman of Kleindienst Group, in the statement.

The developer added that it had the permission to apply this title to The Floating Seahorse Villas in other locations if it chooses in the future. ����
