Miami-based Crystal Lagoons and Steve Wynn will transform the Las Vegas landscape with 38 acres of Crystal Lagoon surrounded by beaches
Miami-based Crystal Lagoons has teamed up with Steve Wynn, Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN) to transform the Las Vegas Strip into a beautiful beach paradise.
Wynn, the legendary luxury resort developer responsible for the revival and expansion of the Las Vegas Strip, plans to reinvent the iconic travel destination and set a new record for the largest crystal lagoon in the United States
“We have an opportunity to reinvent Las Vegas and transform the entire venue into an entertainment attraction … an idyllic beach paradise surrounded by white sands,” said Steve Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts. “People from all over the world come to Las Vegas to live big and have a good time. We can build an irresistible entertainment attraction.”
A 38 hectare crystal lagoon will be the centerpiece of the development, which will include 260,000 square meters of premium meeting and conference space, a hotel tower with 1,000 rooms, a small casino, and extensive dining and nightlife options.
The lavish water attraction includes entertainment elements both during the day and at night. At night, the space is transformed with an elaborate fireworks display that starts from the 120-foot center island and the surrounding areas. The extension is being built on approximately 130 acres of real estate currently home to Wynn Golf Club. The project has yet to be approved by Wynn’s board of directors.
The artificial lagoon with crystal clear water and white sandy beaches will be the size of more than 30 soccer fields and almost the size of nearly 100 Olympic swimming pools. The new Crystal Lagoon is set to transform the Las Vegas lifestyle by adding water sports like stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing, swimming, and more. With this new beach destination, guests can enjoy the beach life and outdoor activities that Las Vegas previously missed.
“Working with legendary Steve Wynn to reinvent the Las Vegas Strip is very important to Crystal Lagoons,” said Uri Man, US CEO of Crystal Lagoons.
Since opening its US headquarters in Miami, Crystal Lagoons US Corp. 13 projects with well-known development companies such as Turnberry Associates, the Tavistock Development Group and the Metro Development Group announced, representing a development of 12 billion dollars and a total of 55 projects in different areas negotiation phases in the USA with a value of almost 54 billion dollars.
The Las Vegas Crystal Lagoon marks the company’s growing success in the US and realizes the company’s founder, Fernando Fischmann, and his dream of bringing the beach experience to the world’s luxury and entertainment capitals such as Las Vegas and Dubai.
This signature Las Vegas lagoon complements the company’s portfolio of 300 projects in more than 60 countries worldwide. That year, the company opened an office in Los Angeles to meet growing demand on the west coast. A new office is also planned for Texas.
A crystal lagoon uses 30 times less water than a typical 18-hole golf course and 50 percent less water than a park of the same size. Crystal Lagoons technology uses disinfection pulses that use up to 100 times less chemicals than swimming pools and an ultrasonic filter system that uses up to 50 times less energy than traditional filtration systems. Also, crystal lagoons can use almost any type of water, including fresh water, salt water, brackish water, well water, and much more.
In addition to recreational use, the Crystal Lagoons technology also has industrial applications, including the sustainable cooling of thermal power and industrial plants, as well as the desalination and purification of water. The company is working to address the global shortage of fresh drinking water through its experimental desalination technology project already ongoing in Chile.
