New continent grown by corals

In XX century, some artificial islands were built by UAE, Japan and China, but their land reclamation technologies were rather old-fashioned: large amounts of rocks, cement or clay had to be moved to a targeted area. That's why those artificial islands were small and very expensive to build. Now, with genetically modified fast-growing corals, one can easily grow a new island with pre-designed properties. This biotech method is even used to grow a whole new continent in Pacific Ocean.

AvilStoneheart Coral is actually a bunch of small organisms called polyps that group up and create the coral that we see today. So if we could get a bunch of these little organisms together and get them to "do our bidding" for say, the giant coral island might be possible. We would also need to sorta "buff" the polyps so that they could hold all the weight on their small bodies. But I believe that won't be for another 100 to 150 years after 2050. I don't know if it will be sooner or not, but I am highly doubting that. Because of this reason, I'm going to have to disagree with you.
