LowThe first floating city in the letter is reported to be preparing in South Korea. U.N. This flowing sustainable city plan is being developed by Habitat’s New Urban Agenda and New York – based Oceanicus. The project will be spread over 75 hectares and will provide housing to 10,000 families. The project is expected to be completed by 2025.
It is reported that it will be built near the South Korean coastal city of Busan, but no final decision has been made. It is expected to cost about $ 200 million.
The project has already been approved by the Busan Metropolitan City. The buildings will be constructed in such a way that they can withstand all kinds of natural disasters. Each house will be anchored at the bottom of the ocean. It will be designed to withstand flooding and Category 5 hurricanes.

While the authorities are moving ahead with the construction work, no decision has been made on the cost of living here, who the occupants will be and what are the criteria for selecting them.
In the early days of residence, vegetables should be included in the diet. Fish waste will be used as manure. In addition, aeroponic and aquaponic systems will be used as farming methods. Aeroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil. Aquaponics is a method of growing plants using bacteria.
The buildings will not be more than seven storeys high, although the overall size of the city will be decided. This is in terms of wind resistance.
At the same time, there is growing criticism from many parts of the world of building a city on a hectare of seafront. Also, rising sea levels and climate change pose a challenge to the project.
