Crystal Lagoons® Sustainable Technology Monitored 24/7

Crystal Lagoons® is a U.S., Miami-based company that has developed a pioneering, innovative, and sustainable technology that has been patented worldwide in over 190 countries. This technology, created by the firm’s founder, Fernando Fischmann, allows crystalline lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at very low costs anywhere in the world, using a minimum amount of additives and energy. This allows people to enjoy beach life, year-round, even in large, landlocked cities.

There are currently more than 50 million man-made water bodies around the world, such as artificial lakes, lagoons on golf courses, reservoirs, among others. None of them have the transparency of tropical seas reminiscent of the Caribbean. On the contrary, their water looks murky with a dark green color, because of the algae proliferation and the accumulation of sediment in the bottom.

For years, different water treatment technologies have been applied in large bodies of water, with the objective of achieving good quality, such as the use of ozone, aeration and movement of water, enzymes, biological equilibrium and fish, among others. However, none of these methods have managed to create large bodies of crystalline water with high transparency and microbiological quality.

For this reason, Fernando Fischmann, biochemist by profession, created a sustainable technology method and system that allowed him to build and maintain large crystalline lagoons with excellent water quality at very low costs. In fact, the most important advantages offered by Crystal Lagoons technology are its low construction and maintenance costs, the use of any type of water source and its low water consumption, converting it into the World’s Top Amenity™, and has improved millions of people’s lives around the world.

The results of this efficient system based on pulses of disinfection allows to use up to 100 times less chemicals compared to conventional swimming pools and drinking water treatments, reducing the excessive costs of additives and their consequent damage to the environment.

Telemetric Monitoring and Operation

The application of additives is determined electronically by injectors and sensors strategically located in the lagoon. This operation is managed online by the Crystal Lagoons Control Center, so that the presence of qualified personnel for the application of the additives and the monitoring of the water quality of the lagoon is not necessary.

It also ensures efficient filtration system consumes only 2% of the energy compared to conventional swimming pool filtration systems. In addition, as the Crystal Lagoons filtered volume is up to 300 times lower than in conventional systems, the complete filtration system is smaller, allowing the space required for the installation of pumps and filters to be reduced.

All lagoons that use Crystal Lagoons technology around the world are monitored, controlled, and operated online from the Crystal Lagoons Control Center (CLCC) 24/7.

Crystal Lagoons started 2024 on a high note. The multinational announced a new contract that enhances its presence in this country, the primary market for the firm in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The new real estate project is Azha North Lagoon, a second home complex located on the North Coast, in partnership with Madaar Development, a firm with which Crystal Lagoons has already developed the successful project Azha Ain Sokhna on the Red Sea. The new project will be in Ras Al Hikma, an area of great tourist and holiday success. It is on the front line with a 27-acre lagoon.

In Egypt, Crystal Lagoons has projects in different stages of development and operation, mainly located on the North Coast and along the Red Sea. Also in this country, the multinational has advanced negotiations to enter Cairo with its Public Access Lagoons™ complexes, also known as PAL™, which will revolutionize the lifestyle in Egypt’s cities, bringing beach life to the doorstep of homes and accessible to anyone through the payment of a ticket.

These crystalline lagoons are an attractive real estate amenity in Egypt. Among the multinational’s business partners in Egypt are recognized managers such as Tatweer Misr, Hassan Allam Properties, Golden Pyramids Plaza, and Madaar Development, among others. Likewise, Egypt is the second largest crystalline lagoon in the world at the Citystars Sharm El Sheikh project, with 28 acres in the middle of the desert.

“In Egypt, Crystal Lagoons® technology is recognized as the only one capable of developing crystalline lagoons at low construction and maintenance costs,” explains Miguel Ángel Cabañas, regional director of Crystal Lagoons.

With new developments in Buenos Aires (Openn Pilar), Rosario (Vida Lagoon y Distrito Cero), and Mar del Plata (Developer Aqua), Argentina has consolidated its position as Crystal Lagoons’ main market in South America after Chile.  In addition to these complexes, there are others in association with essential local real estate managers such as Castex, Morvial, Arkken Group, Rossetti Desarrollos Urbanos, Grupo Monarca, Grupo Developer, DLM, Galp Inversiones and Vizora in Gran Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Pinamar. The projects Terralagos, Lagoon Pilar, Acquavista, and Remeros Beach, among others, stand out.

All Crystal Lagoons developments in Argentina have become sales successes. Remeros Beach sold over half of its sites within the first two months, while Terralagos sold more than 1,000 lots, exhausted apartments in record time, and has a waiting list for the next building to be launched, both projects in Buenos Aires. In Mar del Plata, Developer Aqua sold one-third of the project on the first day of commercial launch, tripling the price per square meter.

“In Argentina, beyond the different economic situations, the success of Crystal Lagoons does not stop. Projects incorporating lagoons generate exponential added value in the real estate sector. The projection is even more positive because an increase in foreign investment is expected in the coming months, which will further boost the real estate market”, explains Francisco Matte, Crystal Lagoons’ regional director for Latin America.

One of the keys to the multinational’s success in Argentina is the beachside lifestyle of its residents who, thanks to the crystalline lagoons, can enjoy turquoise waters just steps from their homes without the need to take a plane, even in inland areas such as Córdoba and Rosario and in a renowned resort town like Mar del Plata.

Crystal Lagoons also has advanced negotiations in Argentina to develop Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™ projects. These complexes, accessible to anyone by paying a ticket, feature large crystalline lagoons and white sand beaches surrounded by attractive amenities such as restaurants, beach clubs, retail outlets, theaters, and cultural activities.

Crystalline lagoons, powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology, have redefined the global real estate market paradigm. Once again, a leading economic media outlet, Forbes, acknowledges the impact of this amenity, highlighting it as a key driver of sales across the board. Particularly notable is the case of Colombia, where crystalline lagoons have been a fundamental factor in the commercial success of real estate projects. An eloquent example of this phenomenon is the commercial success of the construction company Arquitectura y Concreto. Crystal Lagoons has been a determining factor in the 70% increase in its sales, even in a challenging real estate context facing a 45% decline.

“It sounds unbelievable, but that’s how it happened,” said Francisco Martínez, president of Arquitectura y Concreto, in an interview with Forbes Colombia, attributing the meteoric increase in sales to the innovation of Crystal Lagoons. The executive highlights the success of Crystal Lagoons projects with AED, including Baia Kristal in Cartagena de Indias, the best-selling project in Colombia, reflecting the multinational phenomenon in that market. In fact, with its 3.2 hectares of crystal-clear waters and white sands, it was initially projected to be sold within three years, but it ended up being commercialized in less than 12 months, positioning itself as the #1 project in sales in the country since its launch.

This success led AED to finalize a master agreement with Crystal Lagoons to develop 13 projects with crystalline lagoons in the Colombian Caribbean and the Coffee Region, including cities such as Barranquilla, Santa Marta, Pereira, and Cartagena de Indias.

Azul de Arenas is part of this agreement and marks Crystal Lagoons’ entry into Latin American retail as part of the Colombian Caribbean’s largest shopping and entertainment center. The project’s centerpiece in Cartagena de Indias will be a 3-hectare crystalline lagoon suitable for swimming and water sports.
