South Africa’s leading real estate developer, Balwin Properties, recently announced their new development worth 6 billion dollars (R9 billion) called Munyaka in Waterfall, Midrand, South Africa. A truly unique project, the development will be anchored by a Crystal Lagoons® amenity, powered by sustainable technology that has been patented in over 190 countries worldwide.
Balwin Properties founder and chief executive officer, Steve Brookes, explained to local media outlet Midrand Reporter, that Munyaka, which translates to “crystal” in Venda, is set to be a crown jewel in their development portfolio and is set to bring an exceptional product to South African sectional title buyers.
The Crystal Lagoons amenity, characterized by its pristine waters and sustainable technology, at Munyaka will be the largest in the southern hemisphere, covering an area of approximately seven rugby fields.
“The lagoon will feature a landmark 50-metre high tower with amenities including a 50-seater restaurant and conference facility with a commanding view of the Johannesburg skyline as well as zip-lining from the tower into the lagoon and a heated pool, fed by the lagoon. There will also be a variety of other services including a lifestyle centre, cinema room and restaurants.”
Munyaka is just one of the recent announcements for Crystal Lagoons in South Africa as the American company has announced a total of five new real estate projects that will bring white sand beaches and pure turquoise lagoons to areas across the country, enabling residents to practice water sports, in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. These immense bodies of water provide a tropical paradise to be enjoyed on their doorsteps year round, promoting a healthy lifestyle.
