Want To Live Under The Sea?

Dubai is no stranger to extravagance and opulence, especially when it comes to real estate projects and architecture.

The Heart of Europe, a chain of islands right off Dubai's coast that are meant to replicate and mirror a smaller-scale version of the European nations, are the epitome of Middle Eastern coastal wealth.

Perhaps that's why real estate development company the Kleindienst Group has decided to build 131 Floating Seahorse Homes on the chain of islands, each being put on the market for a pretty $2.7M.

The three-story homes will consist of a 270-square-foot underwater level with a master bedroom and bathroom, each accompanied by its own private coral garden outside.

The rest of the structure features a floating bed, living room and observation deck.

But these luxurious, multi-million dollar homes actually have a charitable motivation behind them.

The homes will give the seahorse population in the area (which is vastly endangered) space and resources to continue repopulating.

As The Kleindienst Group said in a statement:

"We will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats which will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed."

The first phase of rollouts on the Seahorse Homes is expected to be completed by October 2016, continuing into 2017 and 2018 with more developments and expansions.

Part of these expansions will include "Signature Edition" homes, which will contain nearly 900 square feet of living space, which will hit the market for $12M.

The project might be quite a lavish way to save the seahorses, but we suppose any effort helps.

Besides, why wake up to trees and mountains when you can wake up to an underwater coral garden?

In this Monday, Oct. 5, 2015 photo, a thick blanket of early morning fog partially shrouds the skyscrapers of the Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers districts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubaiâs rapid transformation from a desert outpost into one of the worldâs most architecturally stunning cities is mapped out in the Marina. Where just 15 years ago there was empty, flat land, today a bustling neighborhood thrives centered around a canal and an impressive skyline that pierces through the clouds. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)

Armies of low-paid migrant workers, many of them from the Indian Subcontinent, leave behind families and travel to Dubai to build soaring towers like those in the Marina. While the wages they come for offer hope of a better life, they are far too meager for most to ever dream of calling the Marina they built home. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)

Owning an apartment in one of these towers means access to skyline pools, concierge services and grand apartments that cater to the regionâs royalty, as well as the worldâs wealthiest businessmen and women.
