Crystal Lagoons’ lagoon in Dubai raises the interest of the media30 June, 2015 / News
The recognized Middle East-base publication “Gulf News” has recently reported on the progress Crystal Lagoons is making on what will be the world’s largest man-made lagoon right in the centre of Dubai. The lagoon will be developed in phases at the District One development in Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MBR) City.
Stretching across 7 kilometres and covering 90 acres within the 1,100-acre spread of District One, Crystal Lagoons will have a minimum width of 40 metres and a maximum depth of 2.5 metres. District One — launched in mid-2013 as the first project at MBR City — is being developed through a joint venture among Crystal Lagoons, Sobha Group and Meydan.
“Rather than take up the Lagoons’ construction in the latter phase of the overall project, our choice has been to create stretches within each of the phases, with delivery starting by late 2016,” said P.N.C. Menon, Chairman of Sobha Group. “It creates a beachfront in the heart of the city with lush green landscaping and a 14-kilometre boardwalk.”
Meanwhile, sales of the second stage of super-premium villas are on the cusp of being sold out, and repeating what the earlier round had attained, thanks to the differentiating value provided by Crystal Lagoons.
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.
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.
