Two New Crystal-Clear Lagoons Coming to Texas11 January, 2017 / News
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.
“We are proud to partner with Land Tejas, one of the Houston area’s most successful developers, on what is sure to be two of their fastest-selling master-planned communities,” said Crystal Lagoons U.S. CEO Uri Man. “Land Tejas has a strong history in the region, and is known for implementing forward-thinking and innovative technologies, like Crystal Lagoons, that will offer their residents a fun, healthy and active lifestyle for many generations to come.”
Ideal for swimming, sailing, and more in a safe and fun environment, Crystal Lagoons is a true family-centric amenity that brings a Caribbean beach life experience to hotels, resorts and master-planned communities around the world.
“When we visited a Crystal Lagoon in person, we immediately knew the value it would bring to our residents who will be able to enjoy beach life and water sports right in their backyard,” said Al Brende, Co-Owner, Land Tejas.
“It has been great working with Crystal Lagoons over the past year to implement this amenity in two of our newest communities, and we are excited about the impact this will have on sales velocity, pricing and the quality of life for our residents,” said Jeff Sheehan, Director of Community Affairs and Amenities for Land Tejas.
Crystal Lagoons technology earned patent protection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Fast-Track Program for Green Technologies, which provides fast track approval to companies whose technology provides advances in sustainability. This sustainable amenity uses 50 percent less water than a park of the same size, 30 times less water than an 18-hole golf course, 100 times less chemicals than a swimming pool and up to 50 times less energy than conventional pool filtration systems. Furthermore, these crystal-clear lagoons can use almost any water source including fresh, salt and brackish.
This announcement follows the company’s first Lagoon announcement in Texas, part of “Bayside” near Dallas. Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp recently opened its first office in Dallas, Texas, led by Crystal Lagoons Central U.S. Regional Director Derrick Roach, and is expecting to announce additional projects in 2017. These are the company’s 13th and 14th Lagoons in the U.S. since it opened its U.S. Headquarters in Miami in 2014. Worldwide, Crystal Lagoons boasts over 400 projects – in different development stages – in 60 countries.
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.
