The New York Times now dedicated a feature to the ‘global real estate phenomenon’ of Crystal Lagoons. Defining these crystalline lagoons as the new waterfront, the article emphasizes how they have redefined the experience of owning a property by the sea. It underscores their growing interest and their key role in projects worldwide.
These turquoise bodies of water have evolved into a global trend, transforming landscapes and creating idyllic beach environments enjoyed year-round. Their appeal to buyers is undeniable, as they significantly increase property values and sales prices, outperforming any other amenity.
The founder of Crystal Lagoons, Fernando Fischmann, was interviewed by The New York Times, highlighting the sustainable features of his technology, which uses up to 100 times fewer chemicals and 50 times less energy than a traditional pool. The lagoons can also be filled with fresh, salt, or brackish water, using 40% less water than a green area of the same size and 33 times less than an 18-hole golf course, requiring only 2% of the energy needed by conventional pool filtration systems.
The article showcases different Crystal Lagoons projects, including the award-winning SoLéMia in northern Miami and Damac Lagoons in Dubai. Both developments incorporate a lagoon with Crystal Lagoons® technology as a central piece, offering an idyllic environment for living, working, and playing, even amid the desert.
According to Chris Graham, founder of the London-based consultancy Graham Associates, specializing in luxury real estate brands, crystalline lagoons are desirable for their consistently clear and calm waters and because they provide safety for swimming and water sports. “High waves or murky conditions that would typically prevent you from enjoying water sports on or in an ocean or lake aren’t a concern with a man-made lagoon,” he states.
The attributes of Crystal Lagoons® amenities have been widely highlighted by the most important media outlets on all five continents, such as The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest (the world’s leading architecture magazine), Bloomberg, Forbes, BBC, CNN, FOX, TVE, RAI, Nat Geo, Popular Mechanics, among many others.
