Middle East financial media reports on record breaking Crystal Lagoons project for Dubai
The high profile project, being developed by Crystal Lagoons in partnership with Meydan Sobha Group, will break not one, but six world records.
Mohammed Bin Rashid District One will feature the world’s largest manmade lagoon, designed by multinational water innovation company Crystal Lagoons. The 90-acres crystal clear lagoon will stretch across seven kilometres, with a minimum width of 40 metres and a maximum depth of 2.5 metres.
The complex will also feature another five world records: the world’s tallest residential tower and highest 360-degree observation deck (711 meters), highest restaurant (675 meters), largest dancing fountain (420 meters) and longest indoor ski slope (1.2 kilometers long and 180 meters high).
The estimated US $8.6 billion scheme is scheduled for completion in time for the UAE’s hosting of World EXPO 2020, with construction already underway.
It is worth mentioning that Crystal Lagoons’ sustainable technology just needs water to compensate for evaporation, representing half the water consumption of a park and up to 30 times less than a traditional golf field. In addition, these lagoons use up to 100 less chemicals than traditional disinfection systems of drinking water and pools, and up to 2% of the energy conventional filtration systems require.
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.
