The crystalline lagoons revolution in Florida

14 October, 2022 / News

Can’t go to the beach? Then the beach comes to you! This is how the real estate consulting firm specializing in luxury properties, AMG International Realty, highlights the revolution that crystalline lagoons are causing in Florida. The article published on the website of the American firm explains the unique characteristics that have turned the artificial lagoons developed with Crystal Lagoons® technology into a sustainable amenity with the greatest impact in the U.S.

Florida is one of the U.S. states where the company first began its meteoric rise. Among the 51 projects in Florida are Epperson, Evermore, Sole Mia, Southshore Bay, Mirada, Aqua, Emerald Lakes, Ridgewood, Lake Susy, Tamiamiami and Haines City, among others. The first development was Epperson, which from the outset was a commercial success. Every year it leads the rankings of the best-selling real estate developments in Tampa and the U.S. In fact, when part of the complex’s artificial lagoon opened to the general public, it triggered a wave of ticket sales worth US$50,000 daily with up to 1,200 visitors every day. Tickets began selling out weeks in advance.

One of the most iconic tourist areas is Orlando which, in 2021, was tapped into by ADËLON Capital, renowned asset management and administration firm, and business partner of Crystal Lagoons. The city showcases every type of entertainment offering and infrastructure imaginable, except it lacks beach life. The two companies signed a master agreement for the development of at least five Public Access Lagoons™ projects, also known as PAL™ complexes, the first of which is to be built next year.

Strong interest in the state of Florida led the U.S. developer and Crystal Lagoons to recently sign a second exclusivity agreement to expand their operations with new PAL™ complexes in Melbourne, at Brevard County, as well as other areas on Florida’s east coast.

“The Orlando region is already the richest in number and quality of attractions in Florida, but it does not have beaches, which motivates many buyers to opt for coastal cities, such as Miami Fort Lauderdale or Boca Raton. Although Orlando is close to coastal cities like Daytona and Clearwater, Crystal Lagoons’ artificial lagoons would bring a premium benefit to tourists and residents alike,” he adds. “This is yet another reason to invest in central Florida,” comments Carlos Barros, partner at CAP Real Estate Abroad.

“Artificial lagoons are the crossways and driving force behind Crystal Lagoons projects in the U.S. This is apparent in the different rankings such as that of RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting. In fact, all of the projects with Crystal Lagoons amenities that are at the sales stages in Florida are among the top 50 best-selling real estate projects annually,” says Iván Manzur, Senior VP of Sales, Crystal Lagoons US Corp.
