First Crystal Lagoons project in US raises expectations
The first lagoon that Crystal Lagoons® will open in the United States has caused the interest of real estate developers and media. The ABC TV station broadcast a story highlighting the arrival of this World’s Top Amenity to the Epperson project, which the multinational innovation company develops in Florida in partnership with Metro Development Group.
The project has had an outstanding commercial success after incorporated the crystalline lagoon. With this, Crystal Lagoons confirmed its real estate revolution in the U.S. by boasting over 16 signed projects and 44 more in different development stages. In fact, Epperson sold out the first 400 lots of its phase one, only after a month and a half from the announcement of its decision to incorporate a crystalline lagoon, triggering a waiting list of over 3,000 potential buyers.
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 crystalline lagoon stands out. Epperson is the first out of five projects Crystal Lagoons already has planned with Metro within Florida.
“We are absolutely delighted with the debut of our first crystalline lagoon in the U.S. and are 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 in this country.”
Among some of the upcoming crystalline lagoons set for Florida stand out Beachwalk; Lake Nona, in Orlando which is being developed in partnership with Tavistock Group, a multinational company led by Joe Lewis, British millionaire and partner of Tiger Woods; SoleMia in northern Miami, in partnership with LeFrak and Turnberry Associates, and the very first Public Access Lagoon in the U.S. in partnership with one of the main theme parks in Miami.
