This probably isn't too far off from many of the larger man_made=pier
structures in resort towns, although it lacks the water underneath most of
the time. Would man_made=bridge be appropriate for the surrounding area?

I think this is becomming fairly common in some flood prone areas, so
dedicated tagging seems like a good idea, both for the usually dry
situation, and for buildings that sit over water but don't even have
vestigial mooring areas.

The wiki lists building=stilt_house, but this seems overly specific.
Whether a building is tagged as being on stilts should be independent of
building use IMO. Regardless in this case min_level=1 seems about right to
me to denote the absence of a ground floor.
