U.S. developers keen on bringing Crystal Lagoons technology to communities across the country30 May, 2018 / News
U.S. press has reported on growing interest in Crystal Lagoons® technology by real estate developers looking for large-scale, man-made water features.
Clear water lagoons have been popular amenities in other countries for years, and now it is the turn for the U.S. Earlier this year, Metro Development Group unveiled a long-awaited, landmark amenity at its Epperson community in Wesley Chapel, Florida. The 7-acre artificial clear water lagoon, newly filled with 11 million gallons of water, is the first of its kind in the U.S. Suitable for swimming, boating, and other nonmotorized water activities, the lagoon will be the centerpiece of the community’s amenity village and beachfront area.
Epperson represents the crest of the tidal wave, so to speak, in the trend toward massive water-based amenities. It is one of 140 such lagoons now in the planning, design, or construction stage in U.S. residential developments, both single- and multifamily.
Crystal Lagoons’ main appeal is its ability to transform most any land asset, even lots in the middle of the desert, into valuable “beachfront” property, according to Kevin P. Morgan, executive vice president of Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp. This lets developers create communities on less-than-desirable tracts of land.
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.
