Crystal Lagoons develops an astonishing mixed-use project in Dubai31 July, 2014 / News
Already home to artificial islands and ski resorts, Dubai is set to build the world’s largest crystalline manmade lagoon, the developers behind the project have confirmed.
Crystal Lagoons, the US-based developer of some of the world’s largest artificial lagoons, is to develop its largest ever project in District One, a joint venture between Meydan Group and Sobha Group located at the Mohammed Bin Rashid City master development.
The project will cover 40 hectares and will be four-times bigger than the world’s largest existing lagoon. It will be officially launched at the Cityscape Global real estate conference in Dubai on October 8 and, once completed, the developers hope it will be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
The project will include custom-made beaches, luxury residences, green parklands, waterways, a shopping and dining pavilion and large recreational spaces.
“Caribbean landscapes are no longer exclusive to tropical destinations. Our pioneering concept and state-of-the-art technology, which allows for sustainable, swimmable, turquoise lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at low cost anywhere in the world, is proving extremely popular with our growing list of partners across the Middle East,” said Kevin P Morgan, CEO of Crystal Lagoons.
Crystal Lagoons Corp. is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, that has developed and patented technology that allows for the low-cost construction and maintenance of unlimited size bodies of water in crystal-clear condition.
