There are so much old buildings like castles surrounded by water, but there are not much modern buildings surrounded by water, maybe all the islands are busy haha.

Maybe less beautiful as the others posted, but this house on Holland Island in the Chesapeake Bay was surrounded by water for a long time - until it fell into the bay last year

In Amsterdam we have a complete train station build on an island. Because of the road, track and other expansions, it doesn't really look like an island anymore. In the future it will look more like an island again by adding water in front of the station.

This is how it is going to look in the future.
