The 40 hectares Crystal Lagoons will be the world’s largest man-made crystalline lagoon which is four-times bigger than the present record of its kind.
The developer, Crystal Lagoons Corp. will inaugurate their latest and grandest project on Cityscape event in Dubai next week.
Once completed, the 40-hectare lagoon, part of the US$7 billion (Dh25.7bn) Mohammed bin Rashid City project, will outwit the current title holder in the Guinness World Records, the 12-hectare lagoon in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh.
Mohammed Bin Rashid City – District One is a prestigious joint venture between Dubai-based Meydan Group and Real Estate developer, Sobha Group.
“Caribbean landscapes are no longer exclusive to tropical destinations. Our pioneering concept and state-of-the-art technology, which allows for sustainable, swimmable, turquoise lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at low cost anywhere in the world, is proving extremely popular with our growing list of partners across the Middle East,” says Crystal Lagoons CEO.
Its filters will reportedly use only 1 per cent of the chemicals that more traditional systems do, and 2 per cent of the energy.
The new lagoon with its expansive beaches will be a core amenity within Mohammed Bin Rashid City – District One’s 47m sq ft of freehold land. The development will feature residences, park lands, waterways, a shopping and dining pavilion and large recreational spaces creating one of the lowest density developments in the heart of any global city.
According to the developer, Dubai set as an outstanding strategic position in the Middle East and has the obvious opportunity to join such world class development that will contribute to the outstanding reputation of the company’s current project portfolio.
