Crystal Lagoons Making Waves Among Australian Property Developers30 September, 2016 / News
There’s an unorthodox trend catching on with property developers around the world. They are busy building beachfront properties – the only catch is there’s often no beach in sight.
A unique design of man-made crystalline lagoons rivalling Mother Nature is allowing developers to create a tropical oasis of an unlimited size wherever they choose – even if it’s in the middle of the desert.
The idea behind Crystal Lagoons is to be able create an expansive artificial waterfront development by activating unused land. The lagoon only needs to be filled with water once – after it’s been treated – and then patented technology ensures the water is kept clean and crystal clear forever, to maintain the feel of a tropical beach.
“The concept was based on an idyllic beach. When you go to Fiji or the Caribbean, you have this colour in your mind,” Asia Pacific director of Crystal Lagoons German Rocca says.
There are more than 400 of these crystal clear lagoons in different stages of development around the world; the 12.5-hectare lagoon in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt holds the current Guinness World Record for the largest man-made body of water in the world.
And next year construction will begin on Australia’s first Crystal Lagoon in Queensland.
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.
