Land Tejas will begin construction on the Houston area’s first Crystal Lagoon later this year as the centerpiece in one of its newest developments, Balmoral.

Found in resorts and upscale residential projects throughout the world, Crystal Lagoons are environmentally friendly, clear bodies of water that use minimal chemicals and technology to maintain. The patented technology enables low water consumption and can use any type of water — sea, fresh or even brackish water — based on availability.

“We are excited to bring this concept to Houston,” said Jeff Sheehan, Land Tejas Director of Community Affairs and Amenity Development. “Much more than a swimming pool, these overly large lagoons open up a wealth of recreational activities that residents of Balmoral will be able to enjoy.”

The Balmoral Crystal Lagoon will be between 1.5 and 2 acres, up to 8 feet deep and bordered with a sand beach and anchored by a beach club. Proposed amenities of the complex include a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse, a boardwalk circling the lagoon, a tennis court, beach volleyball court, fitness room, splash pad, picnic pavilion and playground. A junior Olympic pool also is proposed, giving residents of Balmoral additional water play. The complex is expected to open in June 2018.

“We anticipate residents will be able to not only swim, but also paddleboard and kayak the lagoon,” Sheehan said. “This truly world-class amenity showcases the type of quality development we plan for Balmoral.”

Balmoral is a 580-acre community located a half mile north of Beltway 8 in Humble, minutes from Generation Park. Nearly 100 acres are being devoted to lakes, trails, green space and amenities. Balmoral’s first phase comprises 246 homesites, with model home construction expected to begin in May 2017.

Land Tejas has several communities opening this year, including Wedgewood Forest in Conroe and Etteridge in Humble. Model homes recently opened in another new Land Tejas development, Lago Mar in Texas City.
