Erick van Egeraat presents plans for archipelago in Black Sea 

Erick van Egeraat presented his plans for Federation Island to the President of the Russian Federation, Mr Vladimir Putin. The presentation was held at the International Investment Forum 2007 in the future Olympic host city Sochi. Federation Island is a 330 ha artificial archipelago, located off the coast of Sochi, in the Russian Black Sea. The archipelago offers residences, hotels, cultural, leisure and recreational facilities. Federation Island will be built in the shape of the Russian Federation and reflects the country's major geographical features. The Russian river network is used as a reference for the island's waterways; the high mountains inspire the island relief. Federation Island comprises seven main, more than a dozen private and three breakwater islands. Sandy beaches, dunes, grasslands, bushes, small forests and riverside offer much variety for accommodation ranging from beach residences, luxury villas and apartments to dune, river and cliff houses. President Putin especially inquired about technical details and construction time. Erick van Egeraat assured that the Dutch experience in reclaiming land from the sea will benefit the project, which he considers to be unique among its kind.
