Cartagena colombia central port of the spanish overseas empire, important hub of global marine trade...

 

ocean business development key player network.floating business development.floating business development...
We live on an “oceanic waterplanet”, the population is growing one billion per decade, shore cities are running out of development space, a global trade, oceanic container, economy, supplying shoreside megacities is implemented already, globalisation is a reality, mobility a need, frontier development a driving force of economy, and floating industrial installations are popping up around the globe.

This leads to the following mega-trends:

The quest for interference freedom,

The quest for mobility,

The quest for resources,

The quest for space on the planet

Let me hear your thoughts…

Cartagena Main Port and economic center of the Spanish overseas Empire.


Baysteading and Flag of convenience is not about “yellowpress image” – it is about real business advantages and interference freedom. A ship (equally as a baystead) is considered a “piece of territory” of the flag nation. With almost all ruling code (except environment) depending on the flag nation of free choosing – You can be twenty meters from shore, and apply to a completly different rule set as the land city you are plugged into. That opens VENICE style business opportunities on large scale. Colombia is Latin Americas oldest and most stable democracy, it is the C in CIVETS nations, fast growing, emerging economies, with potential to explosive growth, in the next years, called, Latin Americas Emerging Tiger Nation, Colombia is third in population and among the top 5 in economic power on the Continent. Colombia is a “must look at” spot on the global investors “next to do list” …
Latin American nations are built on the tradition of Simon Bolivar, who was a strong believer in nations where special groups are represented in a federal Government. This makes having special statuses (legal, political) INSIDE the state a very feasible and normal situation. Free trade zones, indian nations with different laws, Colombia is by nature a patchwork of special statuses that makes what seasteading is pretending just another patch in a natural patchwork.
A baystead twenty meters from shore would fly its own flag – so be a foreign territory by defintion, hold a free trade zone status, and hold a special culture territory status and run a bitcoin internet based offshore banking center. Which makes it Venice on steroids in the heart of the economic power center of the emerging latin powerhouse, reviving the economic center port of the greatest ocean oriented economics block in history – THAT is what Cartagena is about. http://concretesubmarine.activeboard.com/t56026816/the-spanish-oceanic-empire/
This is of essence because all actual settlements and economic business centers and development opportunities resemble this historic pattern.

Why oceanic business is the next big thing to come:

To round up the picture Cartagena is in the small hurricane free band of the Caribbean – which allows houseboat style floating structures as viable option. And has protected deepwater bay bigger than the area the City is built on – open to floating development.
It is definitly the best natural harbor feature on the Continent reason why the Spanish overseas empire was developed from here in first place. What is a global marine container shipment economy today was founded and first implemented by the sail ships of the spanish overseas empire.



Hurricane Routes in the Caribbean



Considering all those factors there is nothing remotly comparable to Cartagena in the Caribbean, and the Pacific coast of the Continent is “jungle and desert” where no Venice business model can prosper ever…



It is not coincidence that 3 submarine fiber cable communication backbones (Arcos, CFX, Maya) converge in Cartagena.
A baystead can plugg directly into that…



Port of Cartagena, most efficient port in the Caribbean award – 6 times in a row last six years…

Investment boom Cartagena Marine Business Cluster.
http://colombiareports.co/cartagena-enjoying-unprecedented-investment-boom/#
Now direct flights New York Cartagena.
http://colombiareports.co/avianca-will-fly-direct-new-york-cartagena/
Colombia is the C in CIVETS nations, fast growing, emerging economies, with potential to explosive growth, in the next years, called, Latin Americas Emerging Tiger Nation, Colombia is a “must look at” spot on the global investors “next to do list” …

We will implement floating platforms for a wide range of industrial and tourism applications.


-The afloat ship repair business is taking off.
-Floating housing in a hurricane free bay is already implemented with the Navegante Cholon – more to come.
-Floating marinas are in progress.
-A floating military base is in discussion.
-Floating real estate squaremeters are in high demand due to the city development needs.

So Cartagena is a center of marine business development in any case, investors from China, Dubai, Brazil, and Europe are putting their eye on the City. Donald Trump is building the biggest oceanfront Skyscrapper (Ocean Towers – half finished already)…

This is the decade of oceanic business development and emerging marine key players the VENICE business model is back in a global world of marine trade routes and opportunities.

Question:

A map of what Spain did 400 years ago isn’t helpful to me. And if you are floating, you do not get the benefits of whatever internet cables exist on land, you get whatever a satalite company will allow you, and at huge prices (even in Miami port, where all those cables in your pretty pic also converge, you can be on a cruise ship and get $10/minute phone bill). I have read of the US coast guard boarding Canadian-flagged boats every day in usa waters, looking for reasons to arrest and confiscate the boat.

All is about perspective. To learn where settlements, trade routes and business opportunities are today the best access is to understand how they came historicly in place. To understand why a New Yorker like Donald Trump is investing in building his new skyscrapper in Cartagena (instead of Manhattan) you need to understand that this is a “informed bet” on how the future will develop. History gives you a perspective on presence and future.

The asumption that the “treatment practice of the US Coastguard for annoying weekend boaters” will automaticly apply to a baystead marine cluster in Cartagena or even to a mobile business headquarter type Eclipse doing business in the Cartagena Marine Business Cluster is somewhat flawed and not very realistic. You definitly need to drop that “boater perspective”, you also need to understand that US and Colombian marine authorities are culturally very different and that difference matters A LOT for a baystead. DIMAR the Colombian Marine Authority has “active support of all waterbased economic activity” written in article one of its function code…another “cultural reminent” of the spanish oceanic empire…
So if the US and Europe is driving citizens away with to much interference Cartagena is willing to give them a interference free space plugged into the worldwide communication backbones and tradroutes, in tropical ambient, with a floating community. I implement that with a floating development company type seasteading INC. and the Government definitly backs that.


..


I have miles and miles of hurricane free calmwaterspace as development area to offer. Real estate prices per squaremeter are much lower than on land and of course lower than in Florida…You have 4 giga internet Wifi / UNE everywhere in the Bay…a five minute boat ride brings you to the touristic heart of Cartagenas Walled City, or to a cristal clear water tropical sand beach, with no tourists – your choice…

Question: real estate squarefoot cost ?

My baseline numbers collected in real world pilot projects in the bay of Cartagena are:

Floating real estate squarefoot building cost is 19 USD low end and 89 USD high end.
This numbers should be read as a (project implementation cost) / (total squarefoot produced) figure.

The range of 19-89 USD comes from the characteristics of the building site. 19 USD is low interference building site where you can convert money in floating squarefoot without major interference. 89 USD is for a high interference building site.

It matters little if you deploy the building material in form of floating honeycomb platforms or in form of tubular structures. The general project cost is the same.

Any investor can check the real estate prices in Cartagena for oceanfront real estate and pin down the "profit margin" in a floating development project.
