Crystal Lagoons projects residents: “I have never lived in a place like this”

27 October, 2021 / News

Pasco County, Florida, is officially home to the first man-made lagoon built and powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology in the United States. By including this amenity, the Epperson project has been an all-round commercial success in terms of sales.

But the development has not only been commercially successful. The phenomenon extends to its residents who say: “We moved here a couple of years ago and it’s just been incredible. With our family we have lived all over the world and I’ve never lived anywhere where every day I wake up and I get to experience paradise”.

The children who live in the project also express their preference for the crystalline lagoon: “My favorite thing about living here is going to the lagoon every day and playing with my friends.”

Sample of success is because the project, developed in partnership with Metro Development Group, contracted the project’s first 400 lots in record time, and the project immediately began selling homes at unprecedented speeds, even before completing any of the model homes. Having hit sales targets, home prices were raised twice within ten days of the opening event. Additional price increases ensued.

The Epperson lagoon offers seven-acres of pure turquoise waters and beach fun, year-round, for all the family, which includes an inflatable water obstacle coursefood trucks, and water sports. All in a safe environment, surrounded by palm trees and white sand beaches.

“It beautiful, it’s definitely the reason why we came here. You just take the golf car from the house, come here and we’re literally in paradise” added Sara Watlington, also a resident of Epperson.

Successful business model

Epperson is part of Crystal Lagoons solid business model, which is expanding across the U.S., but also internationally. Operating as a Public Access Lagoon™, also known as PAL™, which can be accessed via ticketed entry, Epperson has often had to close its doors so as to control the flow of visitors.

Another example of this success, can be found in the Houston area. A new 12-acre pure turquoise water amenity, Lago Mar, has sold out nearly every day after opening to the public in July.

Located in Texas City, the beach resort attraction opened to the public this summer with the launch of “Summer Lagoonfest,” which offers several food trucks and water-related activities, including inflatable obstacle courseskayakssailboats, paddleboards and new electric jet boards.
