American media outlets report on possible Crystal Lagoons’ arrival to Atlanta2 December, 2015 / News
Curbed, one of the US’ most important real estate news websites, reported on Crystal Lagoons’ chances for landing in Atlanta soon.
Uri Man, the CEO of the company that specializes in designing and building “the world’s top amenity” is in Atlanta discussing ideas with developers, a spokesperson tells Curbed Atlanta. Crystal Lagoons, an international technology company, is involved in the development of more than 300 massive, paradisiacal mega-lagoons around the world — the largest being a 30-acre lagoon in the Egyptian desert, which was just certified by Guinness Book of World Records — and has announced 10 concepts in the United States. This week, U.S. CEO Uri Man is in Atlanta to meet with “several developers who are implementing this extraordinary amenity into their projects”. The Caribbean-like beachfronts are implemented as amenities for hotels, resorts and residential properties, both new and old. So where does Atlanta need one (or more) of these babies?
Company leaders say the huge bodies of crystalline water (saltwater, freshwater, brackish, well water) are eco-friendly, sustainable and cost-effective. Lagoons use 30 times less water than a typical 18-hole golf course, and 50 percent less H2O than a park of the same size. Technology called “disinfection pulses” allows the systems to use up to 100 times fewer chemicals than swimming pools, officials say.
When asked where Crystal Lagoons might actually happen in Atlanta — surrounding dense intown developments, or the suburbs with more prevalent, cheaper land? — Crystal Lagoons could not yet specify. The company’s U.S. CEO is meeting with the (Atlanta) developers who have expressed interest in adding a Crystal Lagoons to their projects, but no deals have been signed or announced just yet.
Crystal Lagoons Corp. 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.
