North Africa’s Largest Crystal Lagoons’ Project To Be Built In Egypt
Crystal Lagoons, the multinational innovation company and developer of the world’s top amenity patented technology that makes giant crystal-clear lagoons a reality, has announced two new project wins in Egypt, bringing its total portfolio of active and under development projects in the Middle East and India to 15.
Showcasing a range of projects at this year’s Cityscape Global real estate showcase, which will take place at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 6-8 September 2016, the company will highlight its latest project in Egypt located within the US$400 million phase two of the 210-hectare Stella Di Mare project in the increasingly popular western Red Sea coastal resort of Ain Sokhna.
A flagship development for Cairo-headquartered REMCO Group, the second phase of this upscale community is designed around a clutch of private islands surrounded by crystalline lagoons and connected by bridges.
“Once completed, the 38-hectare lagoon will be the largest in North Africa and will also encircle the entire development, thus creating a truly unique residential and leisure environment and further underscoring our ability to bring waterfront living to anywhere in the world, even the desert,” said Carlos Salas, Middle East Regional Director, Crystal Lagoons.
The company has also partnered with Misr Italia Group, one of Egypt’s most prominent real estate developers, to deliver two lagoons with a total size of 2.7-hectares within its US$1 billion second home Mousa Coast community located on the Red Sea, just 90 minutes from Cairo.
“Misr Italia’s reputation for developing highly attractive communities with a broad range of leisure amenities, brought us together; and now the two lagoons will be the focal point of this exciting new Red Sea development,” said Carlos Salas,
“With 2,500 units delivered and plans for 16,000 chalets and five luxury hotels, Mousa Coast is positioning itself as a secure, attractive and versatile location, and Crystal Lagoons’ expertise will add further value and a major USP for prospective investors,” he added.
Crystal Lagoons’ technology can use any type of water. When using fresh water up to 30 time less water is used. Crystal Lagoons can also use salt and brackish water, the latter has no alternative use and it can be obtained from underground aquifers, creating a crystal-clear oasis in the middle of the desert.
“Both of these projects will enjoy an idyllic beach lifestyle enabling residents to practice a wide variety of water sports - such as swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and to enjoy luxurious resort facilities like chalets and standalone villa homes with their own private stretch of beach accessible by boat as well as car,” added Salas.
Crystal Lagoons’ sustainable technology and proven green credentials provide a low cost, low maintenance leisure amenity solution with its ultrasonic filtration system using just 2% of the energy required by conventional filtration systems, positively impacting running costs and dramatically reducing consumption.
