Crystal Lagoons Corp announced the launch of its latest project to date, which once completed will be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records. The Company has signed a deal to construct the world’s largest manmade lagoon, covering 40 hectares, almost four-times bigger than the world’s largest existing lagoon.
The lagoon will be located in Mohammed Bin Rashid City – District One residential community. The lagoon will form an integral part of the US$7 billion project. The new lagoon with its custom-made beaches will offer scope for swimming, water sports and other water-based leisure activities. This development will feature luxury residences, green parklands, waterways, a high end shopping and dining pavilion.
“Our pioneering concept allows for sustainable, swimmable, turquoise lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at low cost anywhere in the world,” said Kevin P Morgan, CEO, Crystal Lagoons. “Dubai gives us a strategic position in the Middle East.”
Mohammed Bin Rashid City (MBRC) is a planned mixed-use development containing four components; family tourism, retail, the arts and entrepreneurship and innovation. An interesting feature of this new development is the public park which is deemed to be larger than Hyde Park in London.
The company is currently in discussions for a number of exciting new tourism projects in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Egypt, and Morgan emphasises the region’s attractiveness as investment in tourism infrastructure.
