Crystal Lagoons opens first pristine clear lagoon in the U.S.
Multinational water-innovation company Crystal Lagoons is celebrating a huge new milestone within the U.S. market by opening the first crystalline lagoon in the Florida real estate market.
Epperson is located in Tampa, and it has been developed by Crystal Lagoons, as part of a strategic partnership deal with Metro Development Group. The project has been a phenomenon of unprecedented success in sales. The first 400 lots of phase one were sold out within only a month and a half from the announcement of the addition of a crystalline lagoon to the project, triggering a waiting list of over 3,000 potential buyers.
Epperson is the first of 16 signed projects for the U.S. and also, the first out of five projects already planned with Metro within Florida. The firm is planning 44 other initiatives for Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and California, to mention a few, with a staggering sum total of US$ 53.4 billion of investment.
Crystal Lagoons debut in Florida confirms a real estate revolution in the U.S. previously announced by the company itself. In less than three years of landing in the country, the company has generated great demand due to its effect on increasing the price of homes and speeding up sales rates by up to 70%.
As in all five continents where the company is already present, Crystal Lagoons real estate innovation is making history in the U.S. by setting new standards for urban landscape, by bringing the Caribbean lifestyle to every corner of the nation.
This is being supported by the 50 U.S. best-selling residential real estate projects yearly ranking, which features the World’s Top Amenity in first place, replacing traditional golf courses as the main attraction of developments.
The Epperson project includes two thousand homes and it is being regarded as the project with the most added value within Tampa due to its technological features among which the 7-acre crystal clear lagoon stands out.
This amenity, surrounded by white sandy beaches, is the key element at Epperson and it will allow people to swim and practice water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding and windsurfing, all in a safe, controlled and fun environment. The project has several other attractive features such as water slides, obstacle circuits, swimming pools with waves, parks for yoga, squares, restaurants, venues for events, among others.
“We are absolutely delighted with the debut of our first crystal clear lagoon in the U.S. and very pleased to be part of this project that reshapes the U.S. real estate market, as has already happened in all countries where Crystal Lagoons has set foot”, says Kevin P. Morgan, Executive Vice President Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp.
Greg Singleton, President of Metro Development Group said, “we are very proud to be the very first firm that has brought this outstanding amenity to the U.S. Today we are setting a milestone by opening the first crystalline lagoon in this country.”
Among some of the upcoming crystalline lagoons set for Florida, Beachwalk, in Lake Nona, Orlando stands out. The project is being developed in partnership with Tavistock Group, a multinational company led by Joe Lewis, British millionaire and partner of Tiger Woods. It is also worth mentioning important projects such as SoleMia in northern Miami, in partnership with LeFrak and Turnberry Associates, and the very first Public Access Lagoon (PAL) in the U.S. in partnership with one of the main theme parks in Miami, Jungle Island.
Likewise, Crystal Lagoons will bring to Las Vegas the only thing the world’s entertainment capital still lacks: beach lifestyle and water sports. At one of the main Wynn Resorts complexes located in the iconic Las Vegas Strip, Crystal Lagoons is building the U.S.’s largest crystal clear lagoon to date, with 30 acres. In Texas the company is developing Balmoral, in partnership with Land Tejas; Windsong Ranch, in partnership with Terra Verde Group; Bayside, in partnership with Bayside Partners, among many others.
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 crystalline lagoons at very low costs.
