Crystal Lagoons’ arrival in Atlanta sparks worldwide press30 December, 2022 / News
The arrival of the Public Access Lagoons™ projects in Atlanta was highlighted by the U.S. press as one of the major milestones and development announcements during 2022.
The website Urbanize included among the eight most important moments of the year, the arrival of Crystal Lagoonsto the capital of the state of Georgia. This will be possible due to the agreement signed by the multinational with real estate manager Tenth Street Ventures (TSV) and financial group EcoVest Capital for the development of Public Access Lagoons™ projects.
This contract will not only bring idyllic beach life to Atlanta – one of the five fastest growing population and economic cities in the United States – and major Georgia counties such as Fulton, Gwinnett, DeKalb, and Cobb.
Crystal Lagoons amenity will also arrive in major cities in North Carolina, including Charlotte, one of the most important financial and energy centers in the United States. TSV is interested in bringing crystalline lagoons to Atlanta and some of the main cities of North Carolina because they have Mediterranean climates but no coastline or beach life.
“The artificial lagoons and PAL™ projects of Crystal Lagoons have been a real hit with the U.S. public and are now seeing rapid expansion in Florida and Texas. Georgia and North Carolina, with their hot and humid summers, will now get to enjoy the beach experience that Public Access Lagoons™ projects bring to cities, just like 200 years ago in England, when the first urban parks were created in London, bringing the forest to the city,” said Ivan Manzur, Senior VP of Sales, Crystal Lagoons US Corp.
The PAL™ complexes will recreate a Caribbean-style ambiance in these regions with turquoise waters, white sands, and water sports activities and are open for visitors on payment of an entrance fee. PAL™ projects also feature hotels, multifamily areas, stores, restaurants, and venues for weddings conferences, concerts, and other events.
For developers, the sustainability element of Crystal Lagoons® technology has been a major draw. These one-time-fill, closed-loop lagoons can use any type of water (sea, brackish and fresh) and require half as much water as urban green spaces. Additionally, they use up to 100 times fewer chemicals than the average swimming pool and only 2% of the energy of a conventional filtration system.
