Texas: Collin Creek Mall US$ 1 Billion Redo Plan May Include Crystal Lagoons Amenity29 July, 2019 / News
The mostly vacant, 37-year-old shopping mall on U.S. Highway 75 is set to get made over into a $1 billion mixed-use development with new office, residential, hotel and retail space. Although there have been talks of plans including a Crystal Lagoons® amenity, this has yet to be defined, according to Dallas Morning News.
Developer Centurion American Development Group bought the 100-acre property outside of Dallas, Texas, late last year and has been working with city officials and neighboring residents on the redo.
Plano’s City Council recently unanimously approved a development agreement, while residents of the area have given overwhelming support for the deal. Before the vote, Plano’s council got 74 responses in favor of the Collin Creek plan and only one phone call in opposition.
Centurion American’s plan for Collin Creek calls for tearing down a large section of the mall and building new restaurants, shops and a hotel. There would be almost 9 acres of parks and 1.6 miles of hiking trails.
The developers are also studying the addition of a Crystal Lagoons water feature in the project, that would, if incorporated, function as a Public Access Lagoon (known as PALs), offering a ticketed entry to the public.
Centurion American hopes to start work at Collin Creek this year.
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.
