THE LAGOON DEVELOPMENT COMPANY
The Lagoon Development Company develops, operates and in some cases owns the public access component of artificial swimming lagoons which function using Crystal Lagoons technology. The company is responsible for the design, financial feasibility, capitalization, and bottom line profitability of the public access component of several lagoons in different stages of planning, construction and operation in Texas.
OUR CURRENT OPERATING LAGOONS
The Balmoral 2-Acre Lagoon is located in the Humble area of Houston. The lagoon anchors an 8-Acre amenity village. It holds 5 million gallons of water. This lagoon was the first in the United States to be approved for swimming. The lagoon was delivered in less than 12 months fully amenitized including a 6,000 square foot clubhouse, 2 beaches, mini-golf, hammock lawn, celebration lawn, food truck area, paddle-boarding/kayaking facility, grotto with waterfall, and conventional swimming pool.
LAGOONS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The Lago Mar 12 acre lagoon is located in Texas City, Texas between downtown Houston and Galveston. The lagoon anchors an 70 acre mixed-use entertainment resort complex. The lagoon will be the largest in Texas holding more than 40 million gallons of water and will be the first in the United States to include a public access facility (The Beach Club). The lagoon will also include a boardwalk with restaurants, bars, entertainment, world class sailing facility, a hotel and amenities for the 4,500 home Lago Mar community. The lagoon construction is well underway with completion expected in less than 12 months. The surrounding residential amenities include a 10,000 square foot clubhouse, beaches, mini-golf, hammock park, celebration lawn, food truck area, paddle-boarding/kayaking facility, grotto with waterfall, and conventional swimming pool. The lagoon is scheduled to be filled in Q4 2019.
