Crystal Lagoons Drives the Development of Urban Lagoons in Mexico10 August, 2016 / News
Multinational innovation company Crystal Lagoons has recently announced its involvement in over 50 projects, representing $10 billion in investment, during the next 10 years. Part of this budget will be assigned to the construction of urban lagoons, aiming at bringing the lifestyle of the beach to Mexico’s major cities.
Crystal Lagoons’ innovation has become the World’s Top Amenity in real estate. Nowadays, the company’s main goal in Mexico is to drive the development of crystalline lagoons in urban areas, thus improving the quality of life of the population. Boasting over 400 projects worldwide, Crystal Lagoons is the only company in the world that can offer this technology, which raises the value of projects per square meter, and speeds up sales rates to figures never seen before.
“Having the chance to have an idyllic beach within your city – in the case of Mexico City, a safe and controlled environment – where people can practice water sports such as swimming, kayaking, sailing, among others, is an amazing thing for the development of homes in major cities. We are already working on many projects that will bring our lagoons to Mexico”, said Jean Pierre Juanchich, CL’s Mexico Country Manager.
Real estate developers have seen great potential in our lagoons since they enable the implementation of real estate-tourism projects in land plots of low or nonexistent commercial value. Our lagoons can use any kind of water –in some cases, they even use water that has no alternative use-.
In the case of Mexico, Crystal Lagoons has realized there is great interest for its technology in real estate developers, but also in final users. The latter tend to choose projects with crystalline lagoons for settling down.
Given that Mexico’s geography lacks rivers, and the few ones that still run through Mexican cities either remain at very low levels of water or they run underground. This is especially true in Mexico City, in areas such as San Joaquín, Tacubaya, Sam Ángel, Barranca del Muerto, among many others. Most of the city’s rivers have filtered down underground, thus provoking the progressive disappearance of Mexico City’s lakes.
The phenomenon mentioned above makes it necessary to count with suitable engineering and technology for the conservation of large bodies of water, but also with the necessary infrastructure that would further avoid this situation to worsen.
About 50% of Crystal Lagoons’ projects worldwide are focused on first-home developments. Given the great potential these lagoons represent for major cities, it has been forecasted that this figure will reach 70% soon, thus surpassing the number of tourism-focused projects the company develops.
In Latin America, Crystal Lagoons has many urban projects. In the particular case of Chile, 27 out of 54 projects –in different development stages– are actually urban projects. Meanwhile in Argentina 100% of the projects are located within cities.
One of Crystal Lagoons’ goals is to help improving the quality of life of the population worldwide. The company’s consolidation in international markets will allow to dramatically increasing the number of crystal-clear lagoons developments, thus making the dream of having a beach one’s doorsteps real for millions.
It is worth mentioning that Crystal Lagoons’ projects are truly sustainable. They represent very low water consumption rates, since they operate in closed-circuit environments, using 30 times less water than a golf course of the same size. In addition, the water used in these lagoons is enjoyed by a far wider audience, in contrast to golf courses. Furthermore, water microbiologic and physiochemical quality of these lagoons complies with some of the highest international sanitary standards.
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.
