Texas: Crystal Lagoons Lakefront Development, Sapphire Bay, In Rowlett To Relaunch In Coming Days
Sapphire Bay Land Development, LLC, the development partner chosen by the City of Rowlett City Council, Texas, has voted for a surf- and beach-based mixed-use development that will serve as a regional and national destination for local residents, businesses and travelers seeking luxury, adventure, and excitement. The project will include a 6.5-acre crystalline lagoon, powered by pioneering technology created by Crystal Lagoons®.
The development will not only be anchored by this paradise-like lagoon, but a 500-room resort hotel, spa, conference center, commercial lease space, and a surf and beach club featuring not only the Crystal Lagoons amenity but also a one-of-a-kind, competition-quality surfing venue.
The development had initially faced controversy when the lagoon had been eliminated. After a long legal battle and citizen demands, the lagoon was reincorporated to the project.
“We are deeply appreciative of the city’s steadfast commitment to this exciting project and the development team’s vision, which will bring a spectacular, paradise-like lagoon to the community,” said Lisa Moore, regional director of Crystal Lagoons.
“Sapphire Bay will become our fourth lagoon so far in Texas, providing further validation of our beautiful man-made lagoons’ rapidly growing appeal. Rowlett’s lagoon will be a fantastic centerpiece drawing countless visitors for water sports, entertainment, dining and more.”
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 clear water lagoons at very low costs.
