Crystal Lagoons inaugurates First Crystalline Lagoon in Texas
Crystal Lagoons® inaugurated its first real estate project in Houston, Texas. For the Balmoral community, this lagoon will be the first crystalline lagoon in the state and only the second in the United States. The project is part of a growing portfolio of paradise-like lagoons currently under development nationwide. Another 110 are also underway around the world.
Residents of Humble, Texas, will no longer need to plan a week-long trip to the beach, because there’s a new type of beach right in their community.
The two-acre crystalline lagoon features two white sand beaches, one with cabañas and lounge chairs, and another is to be a serenity beach that offers beach volleyball, as well as water games for children.
The gold medalist and Global Ambassador for Crystal Lagoons, Michael Phelps, also attended the grand opening of the site on Thursday afternoon.
“We are excited to open our very first crystalline lagoon in Texas, as just one of many spectacular, tropical-style aquatic amenities we expect to develop across the state,” said Kevin P. Morgan, executive vice president of Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp. “Within the next few years, Texas will be our leading U.S. market. Our projects represent the future of outdoor lifestyle amenities, while also bringing enormous value to real estate projects such as Balmoral.”
“Beyond residential projects such as Balmoral,” Morgan added, “we are also seeing a significant increase in demand for our Public Access Lagoon concept across the U.S., which has particularly powerful applications in retail environments such as shopping centers and big box stores, as well as in municipal public parks and distressed golf courses.”
Access to the man-made beach will only be available to homeowners, which will ultimately be made up of 2200 houses.
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.
