Purified seawater will be provided. vehicles such as bicycles and electric scooters will be used for transportation in the floating city without cars.
Floating buildings are built on the ground and then dragged into the water. There they will be attached to a concrete base anchored to the sea floor. The lakes of the lagoon system are the bulwarks of the city. Reducing vibrations caused by waves. The first phase of construction will be completed by the end of June, and the first occupants will begin to shine as part of the city by the beginning of 2024.
