Crystal Lagoons® Lago Mar opens to residents, PAL™ underway10 July, 2020 / News
Miami-based multinational Crystal Lagoons® latest amenity to be inaugurated in the United States, Lago Mar, officially opens to residents today. The 12-acre pure turquoise lagoon, developed together with Land Tejas, is the largest lagoon in Texas and the nation by length and waterfront shoreline, more than a quarter-mile from end-to-end.
In a publication by Houston Chronicle, the lagoon is expected to phase in a public, pay-for-access portion of the lagoon in the future, which will function with Crystal Lagoons unique business model, Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™.
Adaptable for any location, PAL can be inserted in a wide range of places, from shopping malls, real estate developments to horse racetracks, and university campuses, allowing developers to create idyllic beach life just steps away from people’s homes while generating a new business through ticketed entry to the lagoon.
The lagoon al Lago Mar anchors the 100-acre mixed-use entertainment district that upon completion, will offer hotels, condo buildings, retail and dining options. When it opens to the general public, the lagoon will offer white sand beaches and the possibility of beach life and watersports ─year-round─ to a landlocked area.
“We are in talks with several commercial development companies that plan to develop hotels and multi-family condominiums around the lagoon with direct views of the crystalline water,” Uri Man, Executive Vice President for Land Tejas said. “Lago Mar is primed to become Houston’s new waterfront destination.”
Due to the pandemic, the lagoon is enforcing that guests and staff follow state health protocols, including wearing masks and practicing social distancing. Guests can also plan for “lagoon breaks” that will be issued to sanitize swim areas.
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 clear water lagoons at very low costs.
