Crystal Lagoons Reaches $12.2 Billion Investment in Latin American Projects11 November, 2016 / News
Boasting 87 projects – in different development stages – and $12.5 billion in investment, Latin America has become one of Crystal Lagoons’ most important markets. The multinational innovation and technology company, developer of crystal clear lagoons, is disrupting world markets in areas such as real estate, urban planning, public space and industrial applications. Crystal Lagoons’ technology enables the construction and maintenance of crystal clear bodies of water, limitless-in-size, at very low costs.
Crystal Lagoons has entered Colombia with 14 new projects to be developed throughout a year – representing $1.4 billion investment – in inner cities such as Cali, Medellin, Baranquilla, Armenia, among others, and also in touristic destinations such as Cartagena de Indias and Santa Marta.
In Latin America, Crystal Lagoons is present in Chile (28 projects), Colombia (15), Mexico (11), Argentina (11), Peru (5), Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, and Dominican Republic.
Crystal Lagoons’ technology has disrupted Latin American capital cities, such as Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Santiago; Mediterranean cities in Bolivia and Paraguay, touristic icons such as Cancun and Punta del Este; Brazil’s Amazon and the world’s driest desert in Antofagasta, Chile, where the company has improved people’s lifestyles.
“Our technology, patented in 160 countries, has become the World’s Top Amenity. It has allowed the development of very successful projects by enabling land sites that used to lack real estate value or by creating second lines of coast”, Crystal Lagoons’ Global Business Director, Cristobal Baixas, says.
Crystal clear lagoons appeal to people from all socioeconomic segments and geographies. There are very luxurious projects, such as Mexican resort Diamante Cabo San Lucas, while some others aim at the middle class segments, such as Laguna Norte, in Chile. At urban level, the company has achieved great real estate success in Buenos Aires and it has also brought the lifestyle of the beach to inner regions as Matto Grosso, in Brazil, or Santa Cruz, in Bolivia.
The company’s lagoons are sustainable. They can use any kind of water (fresh, salt, and brackish). They work in closed-circuit environments and they just need water for evaporation. They use half the water required by a park and up to 30 times less water than a golf course. They use 100 times less chemical products than traditional disinfection systems and just 2% of the energy required by traditional filtration systems.
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.
