Latin American press points out Crystal Lagoons’ expansion to urban projects6 June, 2016 / News
The recognised Chilean newspaper El Mercurio has recently published an article about Crystal Lagoons’ expansion to urban projects.
The featured story points out that Crystal Lagoons contributes to the development of real state/tourism projects in land lots of low or inexistent commercial value, where people never though building any economically viable development.
The company’s urban lagoons can bring beach-like lifestyle to places never though before, thus completely changing people’s lifestyles. For instance, Crystal Lagoons’ urban projects in Chile have brought lagoons to the doorsteps of about 100.000 people so far, at the very heart of cities.
Currently, the company has 54 real estate lagoon-projects in Chile, at different development stages. 27 of them are urban projects and they represent half the company’s developments within Chile.
Worldwide, Crystal Lagoons faces the same trend. 50 % of the company’s projects are urban and first home developments.
Even so, given the great potential of these lagoons when applied to urban projects, the company forecasts that in the coming years the demand for urban lagoons will reach 70%, while tourism-related lagoons will reach 30% of the total demand.
When launching real estate projects with lagoons, the company has reached historic figures in terms of quantity and sales. The value per square meter rises exponentially, and the sales rate also increases by about 30-70%.
From the 27 Chilean projects, 16 of them are in design and construction stages, or already operative, while 11 of them are in different development and negotiation stages.
Some of the Chilean regions where Crystal Lagoons’ urban projects are locates are: Tarapacá, Antofagasta, Atacama, Valparaíso, Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins, Bío–Bío y Metropolitana.
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.
