Crystal Lagoons breaks world record for the world’s largest crystalline lagoon9 December, 2015 / News
Crystal Lagoons broke the record for the “World’s Largest Crystalline Lagoon” with the completion of its latest project in Egypt.
Twelve Crystal Lagoons totaling 250 acres will be the centerpiece of the $5.5 billion dollar, 1,850-acre development in Citystars Sharm El Sheikh. The record-breaking lagoon is 30 acres of crystal-clear water surrounded by white sandy beaches – perfect for swimming, sailing, kayaking and more.
Citystars Sharm el Sheikh’s crystal lagoon get its salt water supply from wells in the middle of the desert that are otherwise useless, allowing for a tropical crystalline lagoon in the desert. In addition, the salt water used in the crystal lagoon features higher levels of purity and will be used for reverse osmosis desalinization processes, lowering the costs of water treatment.
Miami-based Crystal Lagoons, valued at $1.8 billion dollars, developed a technology that allows for massive crystal lagoons to be built anywhere in the world. The sustainable technology uses 100 times less chemicals and 50 times less energy than a swimming pool.
Crystal Lagoons recently announced its 10th U.S. project with top real estate developers including LeFrak, Turnberry Associates, Tavistock Development Group, and Metro Development Group. More than 35 U.S. projects are in negotiations valued at $22 billion dollars.
“Crystal Lagoons provides unprecedented real estate value,” said Uri Man, CEO, Crystal Lagoons US, Corp. “We are excited about Crystal Lagoons impact on real estate development. Similar to the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh, many U.S. developers are using these crystalline lagoons to transform non-viable properties into viable development sites.”
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.
