American Press Report on First U.S. Crystal Lagoons’ Project Progress3 February, 2017 / News
The first crystal clear lagoon in the U.S. is underway in Florida. Crystal Lagoons US, Corp. first announced plans in June 2014 to develop four lagoons in partnership with Metro Development Group near Tampa. “Epperson” will be the first of four master-planned communities to feature a Crystal Lagoon in the U.S., which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017. A VIP “Unveiling” Event took place on Feb. 2, 2017.
The 7.5-acre crystal clear lagoon will be the centerpiece amenity to more than 1,000 new homes as part of the Epperson community in Wesley Chapel, Florida. The lagoon will be surrounded by shores of resort-style fun and tropical relaxation complete with a water slide, a dock for kayaking, paddle-boarding and small sailboats.
“Crystal Lagoons’ technology provides unprecedented real estate value to any project at very low construction and maintenance costs, and will give families the opportunity to achieve a healthy, active lifestyle in a safe, fun and sustainable environment, for years to come,” said Uri Man, CEO, Crystal Lagoons US, Corp.
The first Crystal Lagoon in the U.S. will be part of what’s been named the first “Smart Gigabit Community” in the United States to be built from the ground up. The “Connected City” is ignited by the fastest internet and WiFi speeds in the nation using its proprietary ULTRAFi technology. This level of connectivity creates new opportunities for Pasco County, such as roadways specifically for autonomous vehicles, an enviable model for top education, advanced healthcare centers, WiFi Parks and much more. Upon completion, the community will have around 37,000 homes and over 12 million square feet of commercial space, including office, retail, light industrial, and state-of-the-art education, medical and technology facilities. The plan for The Connected City spans 50 years, with the first homes expected to be complete in fall 2017.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
