Crystal Lagoons strengthens its presence in the U.S. with major project for South Florida18 August, 2015 / News, Sin categoría
The Miami based publication “Curbed” reported that Crystal Lagoons is developing a high-profile real estate project that will feature two crystal clear lagoons in partnership with the renowned American developers LeFrak and Turnberry.
Two 10-acre Crystal Lagoons will be part of the new, $4 billion, 183-acre master-planned community called “SoleMia”, located on one of the largest remaining undeveloped parcels in South Florida east of Biscayne Boulevard. The massive project will feature a dine-in movie theater and bowling in a pedestrian-friendly lifestyle center, 37 acres of community parks, upscale shopping and dining topped by commercial office space and a 150-key hotel above retail, as well as numerous world-class amenities. Zoned for 4,390 residential units, the development is designed to dramatically reshape the North Miami landscape, transforming the area into an exciting destination for local residents and international visitors.
“We are very excited about our partnership with LeFrak and Turnberry Associates on their joint venture development in North Miami,” said Uri Man, CEO, Crystal Lagoons US, Corp. “With a real estate portfolio that’s growing throughout the U.S. and around the world, we are reinventing the way business and residential communities are being built, focusing on sustainable and innovative development. As our first project in South Florida, we look forward to showcasing this signature project near our U.S. headquarters.”
These massive lagoons just need 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, they use up to 100 les chemicals than traditional disinfection systems of drinking water and pools, and pup to 2% of the energy conventional filtration systems require.
The very first Crystal Lagoon was built 17 years ago in Chile and successfully broke all real estate sales forecasts many times over. San Alfonso del Mar was named the most successful second home resort in the southern hemisphere, and since then, developers worldwide have been seizing upon this new trend. Today, Crystal Lagoons boasts a portfolio of more than 300 projects in 60 countries worldwide including the United States, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Egypt, Singapore, Thailand, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Colombia, among others.
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.
