A Crystal Lagoon is like an enormous seven acre swimming pool. The planned lagoon in Wesley Chapel, announced in 2014, will span 7.5 acres. It is currently under construction.
“People can swim and practice water sports, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding,” said Uri Man, CEO of Crystal Lagoons U.S. Corp
The lagoon will initially use 14-15 million gallons of water. It will be filled slowly over 45 to 60 days.
About 2,000 homes will make up the rest of the planned community around the Crystal Lagoon. Houses start in the $200,000’s, with the lagoon as the community’s main amenity.
Home sales may begin as early as February 2017 and the Lagoon should be completed in late 2017.
