Business Journal: Early work underway on Crystal Lagoons’ massive Orlando project19 December, 2016 / News
The popular financial website Business Journal has recently reported on the progress of Crystal Lagoons’ Lake Nona project, in Orlando Florida.
The city council will vote on the on a qualified target industry tax incentive package that would bring a $430 million, 800,000-square-foot KPMG training and conference center with attendee lodging to a vacant site along Lake Nona Boulevard, as previously reported by Orlando Business Journal. When approved, the new complex would bring 80 high-wage, new-to-market jobs to the area by the end of 2019, as well as additional economic impact.
The Crystal Lagoon, an 11-acre recreational, manmade lake with crystal clear waters, that will be a centerpiece of a new, luxury resort development within the 7,000-acre development of Lake Nona in Orlando, Florida. This will be the largest planned Crystal Lagoons in the U.S. to date.
These massive lagoons create large-scale, Caribbean-style beachfront recreational locations anywhere, ideal for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing in a safe and fun environment. Major media including National Geographic, Popular Mechanics, International Business Times and Bloomberg Television have celebrated Crystal Lagoons for revolutionizing the world’s real estate sectors and for its innovative water treatment technology- resulting in up to 100 times fewer additives, and averaging only two percent of the energy required by traditional water filtration systems.
The company is revolutionizing the real estate market with its transformative technology that allows for the low-cost construction and maintenance of unlimited-sized crystal-clear lagoons that deliver large-scale beachfront landscapes anywhere in the world, adding enormous value to new and existing real estate projects. The bold new science behind Crystal Lagoons means they use less water than golf courses, and maintain sustainability levels ongoing. This is especially true in some rain-intensive states like Florida – where the lagoons can be refilled with direct rainwater and therefore practically do not require make-up water to compensate for evaporation.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Lake Nona on what will be a signature project for Crystal Lagoons,” said Uri Man, CEO, Crystal Lagoons US, Corp. “This will definitely set a new bar as one of our most luxurious projects to date and help to continue to grow the brand in the United States.”
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.
