Crystal Lagoon Comes to Texas
MIAMI, FL Crystal Lagoons has partnered with Bayside Land Partners to create the first Crystal Lagoon in Texas as part of "Bayside," a luxury mixed-use development on Lake Ray Hubbard in Rowlett, Texas, 15 miles east of downtown Dallas, which will broke ground on April 26.
"We look forward to bringing Crystal Lagoons to Texas in partnership with Bayside Land Partners," said Crystal Lagoons U.S. CEO Uri Man. "Texas is one of the most important markets for us, and we are opening an office in the Lone Star State in order to serve the growing demand we have seen from the real estate community here. In Texas Bigger is Better and the World's Top Amenity will be the centerpiece of several master planned communities in Houston, Austin and Galveston."
Bayside, a $1 billion-dollar mixed-use lake-front development, will boast an 8-acre Crystal Lagoon that is 25 times the size of an Olympic swimming pool and equivalent to 10 football fields of water. Ideal for sailing, stand-up paddle boarding and more, the environmentally sustainable Crystal Lagoon uses 50 percent less water than a park of the same size; 30 times less water than an 18-hole golf course; 100 times less chemicals than a swimming pool and up to 50 times less energy than conventional pool filtration systems.
The Crystal Lagoon will be surrounded by a world class resort and marina, two condominium towers, luxury apartments, single family homes and more than 1 million square feet of mixed use retail/entertainment/restaurant/office space.
In addition to offering beach life, the highlight of the Crystal Lagoon will be the largest fountain in Texas that will be home to daily and nightly live entertainment with shows featuring music, fire and more - open to the public. A state-of-the art "water mist screen" will project an interactive video performance for guests to enjoy, especially while dining at the water front restaurants.
"As soon as we saw the Crystal Lagoons in person, we wanted to be the first community in Texas to have one," said Kent Donahue, Development Partner with Bayside Land. "This will be an incredible draw for Rowlett, Dallas and all of North Texas. We are implementing some unique elements in and around the lagoon that have never been done before. The public is going to be amazed."
The Bayside Crystal Lagoon will be the 12th in the U.S., joining the company's portfolio of more than 300 lagoons worldwide. An additional 42 lagoons are under negotiations in the U.S. with a total valuation of almost $54 billion.
