Crystal Lagoons to Develop 30 Public Access Lagoons in Korea18 December, 2019 / News
Crystal Lagoons® has signed one of its most important contracts in Korea, a country renowned for its pioneering technology. It is to develop 30 Public Access Lagoons (PAL), a concept created and patented by the multinational water innovation company.
The annual sales for the projects are estimated to be over US$ 1.000 million and, once operational, projections indicate that these PALs alone will receive more than 30 million people on a yearly basis. The projects will be developed in several cities across the country by NexPlan.
“PALs transform any location into the most entertaining spot in the city, and add significant value to urban environments, creating beach life on people’s doorstep,” explains Cristián Lehuedé, Executive Director at Crystal Lagoons.
Attractive amenities surround these monumental crystalline bodies of water, which can be accessed via ticketed entry, such as restaurants, beach clubs, retail stores, amphitheaters as well as entertainment and cultural activities, for hosting concerts, shows and film screenings, converting PALs into the meeting spot of the 21st century.
The first project in Korea, to be located in Songdo International City, near Seoul will be anchored by an almost 7-acre crystalline lagoon and surrounded by restaurants, retail units, commercial hubs, event centers, amphitheaters for shows.”
“Shopping malls are one of Koreans main sources of entertainment. PALs will offer locals a new experience, allowing them to modify their way of life. This is part of a growing, worldwide trend in which malls are being reconverted into open spaces and the need to offer new functional alternatives and experiences, such as these lagoons,” explains Cristián Lehuedé.
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.
