How the Ultra Wealthy "Conserve" Land

There is building a tiny home to conserve land, that's one thing, and then there is THIS. Off the coast of Dubai, there are a chain of islands forming what some sarcastically call "make-shift" communities, but actually, the islands off Dubai form a buoyant city now peppered with floating villas.

Invested in the water paradise, you'll find men like Richard Branson, whose island is a microcosm of Great Britain. In fact, Branson's enclave is in "The Heart of Europe," part of a larger community with each island claiming some sector of the world. This is a place where the super wealthy come to play and the "Floating Seahorse"--a partially submerged home--is quickly taking the billionaire class by storm!

The 2.8 million dollar Seahorse is the result of 5,000 hours of research and 13,000 hours of design work by the Kleindienst Group.

F. Scott Fitzgerald said it best: The rich are different from you and me.
A penny for your million dollar thoughts? :-)
