Crystal Lagoons launches record breaking Dubai complex in London7 August, 2015 / News
The international news network, CNN, has reported that Crystal Lagoons, in partnership with Meydan Sobha Group, is unveiling in London a new leisure, retail, residential and hotel Dubai complex that plans to break not one but six world records by the time construction is finished in 2020.
Meydan One, as it has been called, will feature the world’s largest manmade lagoon, designed by the Miami based 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 launch event of this project will take place at 6:30 pm on 7th August, at the Dorchester Hotel, in London.
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 currently involved in over 300 projects in 60 countries all over the world. Just in the U.S. the company has 35 projects in different development stages in at least five important states. Apart from that, the firm also develops massive lagoons at Sharm El Sheik resort in Egypt and Dream City development in Prune, India. It has already built large lagoons and pools at Dead Sea resort in Jordan as well as resorts and developments in Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, Peru, Saudi Arabia and Brazil.
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.
