Dubai planning to build world’s biggest attractions including Crystal Lagoons12 September, 2014 / News
Crystal Lagoons is developing the world’s largest crystalline lagoon in mega project “Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One” which will have 40 hectares of crystal clear water in the middle of the desert, beating their third Record Guinness (the first was San Alfonso and second Sharm El Sheik in Egypt).
In this way, Dubai consolidates its desire to break the world records of the biggest and bests attractions, which began ten years ago when the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa opened. Besides this building and the artificial lagoon from Crystal Lagoons, in the city the world’s largest airport will be built with a capacity for 120 million passengers annually.
The list also adds the world’s largest shopping center with a total of 48 million square feet, the world’s largest underwater theme park and the world’s largest racecourse with a capacity of 60,000 spectators, among other attractions.
“Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One” project is executed by Crystal Lagoons in association with a joint venture between Meydan Group-the property arm of Dubai Government, linked to the monarchy- and Sobha, the most important real estate and construction company in India.
The complex, located in the heart of Dubai, with an investment of $ 7 billion, will have as central amenity the artificial lagoon and beaches, surrounded by corporate towers, industrial parks, sports areas, a public park bigger than Hyde Park in London, over 100 hotels, and 1,500 new super luxury residential condominiums, whose homes range between 7 and 12 million.
Crystal Lagoons Corporation is an international innovation company that has developed and patented technology that allows for the low-cost construction and maintenance of unlimited size bodies of water in crystal-clear condition. Patented in 160 countries, Crystal Lagoons’ technology applications range widely from its recreational business, which brings the dream of idyllic beach life to any corner of the world, to its industrial variations in closed-circuit cooling, water desalination and applications for the mining industry. The technology was pioneered by Fernando Fischmann, the founder and chairman of Crystal Lagoons Corporation. A trained biochemist, Fischmann patented the technology and founded Crystal Lagoons Corporation in 2007. In less than three years since its formation, Crystal Lagoons Corporation has seen exponential growth and is currently involved in over 300 projects in more than 60 countries, including Egypt, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Singapore, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Paraguay and United States.
