Crystal Lagoons’ Dubai project featured in the U.S.’ most important real estate publication22 June, 2016 / News
ULI magazine, the most important real estate publication within the U.S., has recently featured an article devoted to Crystal Lagoons and its amazing Dubai project, Mohamed Bin Rashid City -District One.
According to the ULI, the project will feature the world’s largest manmade lagoon, designed by innovation multinational Crystal Lagoons, as its main attraction. The 90-acres crystal clear lagoon will stretch across seven kilometres, with a minimum width of 40 metres and a maximum depth of 2.5 metres.
The lagoon is also complemented by a sandy beach, 237 metres in length and a boardwalk that surrounds the lagoon. The perimeter is decorated by lush, green landscaping which gives the impression of an oasis setting. The new lagoon will offer unlimited space for swimming, water sports and other aquatic non motorised leisure activities.
The complex will also feature other five worlds records: there is the world’s tallest residential tower and highest 360-degree observation deck (711 meters), highest restaurant (675 meters), largest dancing fountain (420 meters) and longest indoor ski slope (1.2 kilometers long and 180 meters high).
The estimated US $8.6 billion scheme is scheduled for completion in time for the UAE’s hosting of World EXPO 2020, with construction already underway.
It is worth mentioning that Crystal Lagoons’ sustainable technology just needs water to compensate evaporation, representing half the water consumption of a park and up to 30 times less of a traditional golf field. In addition, these lagoons use up to 100 less chemicals than traditional disinfection systems of drinking water and pools, and up to 2% of the energy conventional filtration systems require.
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 crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
