Crystal Lagoons unveils plans for first project in Houston24 May, 2017 / News
Imagine lying in a hammock watching crystal clear waves lapping a white sandy beach. The sound of children laughing while they play in the surf can be heard over the wind rustling in the palm trees overhead. This might sound like a scene straight out of a Caribbean beach vacation, but it’s the ambitious vision for a new master-planned community northeast of Houston.
Crystal Lagoons is a multinational innovation company and developer of the only technology that enables the construction and maintenance of crystal-clear lagoons, limitless in size, at very low costs. Known for creating the world’s top amenity, Crystal Lagoons has partnered with the Houston-based developer Land Tejas on two new Lagoons that will be the premiere amenity for their latest master-planned communities in Houston. The first will be in Land Tejas’ Balmoral development located in North East Houston and the second in an undisclosed location that will be announced in the coming months.
Balmoral will feature a 1.5 acre Lagoon that is almost seven times the size of an Olympic-size swimming pool. Balmoral will begin construction of the Lagoon in summer 2017 with plans to open in early 2018. The second Lagoon is planned to feature an 8.5 acre Lagoon that is more than 35 times the size of an Olympic-size swimming pool, and is slated to begin construction by the end of 2017.
Both communities, valued at over $1.5 billion, will feature approximately 2,100 and 4,000 single-family homes, respectively, and $600 million to more than $1 billion in projected home sales. Each community will also feature a Beach Clubhouse with areas for water sports, such as kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding, as well as white sandy beaches surrounding the lagoon.
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.
