European media reports on Crystal Lagoons’ projects in Europe
As part of the inauguration of the first crystal clear lagoon in Europe, media have reported that the multinational innovation company is driving a total of 20 projects in that continent.
According to the Mundo Financiero portal, the “developer of the world’s top amenity is in talks with real estate developers, hotel chains, local governments, among others, in an effort to increase the number of crystal clear lagoons within the European continent. Crystal Lagoons already boasts over 20 projects – in different negotiation and development stages – in Spain, France, Germany, Portugal and Turkey”.
Crystal Lagoons’ state-of-the-art and disruptive technology, which brings an idyllic beach lifestyle anywhere in the world –including deserts- has had a tremendous impact on different world regions. The company has recently opened the very first crystal clear lagoon within the continent in Spain. Alcazaba Lagoon is located on the Costa del Sol, Casares, Málaga, one of the top destinations in Spain. The 1.4-hectare crystal clear lagoon will be the main attraction of this second-home community, developed by Grupo Osim. The lagoon will enable people to practice water sports such as paddle surf, kite surf, wind surf, among many others.
The very first crystal clear lagoon on the continent will be the starting point that will open the road for other projects in places such as Catalunya, Comunidad Valenciana, Andalucia, Madrid or Murcia, where Crystal Lagoons already has projects in different negotiation stages.
Crystal Lagoons wants to take advantage of the boom in tourism in Spain, a country that in 2016 received 75.3 million visitors, 9.9% higher than in 2015, breaking the historic 75 million visit barrier for the very first time, according to official figures retrieved from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE). Likewise, the IMF has forecasted 2.6% growth for the Spanish economy in 2017, “figures that forecast positive impact on real estate markets and that are good for business”, said Francisco Matte, Crystal Lagoons’ newly appointed Regional Director for Europe.
Matte said: “The current oversupply in the residential sector has put pressure on real estate developers, who must be even more competitive when selling property, considering the amenities they offer too. Crystal Lagoons adds a wow factor by bringing an idyllic beach lifestyle to anywhere in the world”.
“Crystal Lagoons’ concept has managed to break the real estate motto of “location, location, location” and it has become the world’s top amenity by setting idyllic beaches with crystal-clear water of the highest quality in places never imagined. Crystal Lagoons changes the landscape generating dreamlike scenarios of turquoise waters that people can enjoy all year round that raises the value of properties, sales prices, and density of projects previously deemed unviable. Crystal Lagoons makes impossible possible”, the executive states.
For Matte, “Europe will be one of the regions in the world with the highest number of crystal clear lagoons, because it has potential for it. Crystal Lagoons does not want to lose an opportunity at a time when investment in property and tourism infrastructure keeps growing. Our project portfolio is raising the interest of some of the biggest markets in the region. Presence across the continent shows the added value that crystal clear lagoons represent for leisure destinations across Europe. In the particular case of Spain, we are very excited about the opening of Alcazaba Lagoon, developed by Grupo Osim, since it represents a gate opening for growing expansion in other European 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.
