Miami-based Crystal Lagoons is planning to build at least five turquoise water swimming concepts in Central Florida in 2023. The lagoons are slated to be built in Osceola, Seminole, Orange, Lake, and Sumter counties and will contain turquoise waters, white sand beaches, tiki huts, and aquatic sports. Normally we all havre to drive to enjoy such beauty, but these beautiful lagoons are coming to a neighborhood near you.
“The first 3 projects will be located in Kissimmee, the Villages, and Orlando,” says Iván Manzur, Crystal Lagoons’ corporate senior VP of sales.
These outdoor paradise-like attractions are man-made and use fewer chemicals in the water, according to Crystal Lagoons , one-hundred times less chemicals than what you’d find in your average swimming pool in Florida.
Crystal Lagoons currently has 221 projects in the United States. These five will be the first in Central Florida. There are others located in Florida, but they are all part of residential areas and are private. The ones planned for Central Florida will be public, meaning anyone can enjoy them, for a fee.
The lagoons potentially would be built in conjunction with other new development like hotels and apartments. “We will bring Orlando the only thing it is lacking: a beach lifestyle,” Jonathan Cohen, Adëlon Capital founder, and co-chairman, said in a news release.
Specific locations, ticket prices, estimated project costs, and other details about the construction team have not been revealed at this time, or even if actual deals been finalized and signed, but as far as where in Kissimmee Crystal Lagoons would develop, we “assume” it will likely be in the West 192 corridor.
This is a developing story and Positively Osceola will keep updating as we learn more specifics.
