It’s been many years since Fernando Fischmann created the Guinness World Record’s largest Crystal Lagoon, but his once-record-setting creation is set to make its United States debut at Metro Places’ Epperson community. Southshore Bay is following right behind.
While Epperson will be the first community of its kind to install a 7.5 acre wide Crystal Lagoon in the center of its campus, Metro Development Group sees the Epperson installation as a pioneering effort, laying the groundwork for SouthShore Bay in Wimauma–another Metro community–to receive its own Lagoon shortly after.
In addition to the Lagoon, some of Metro’s big plans for SouthShore Bay include an entertainment plaza, a swim-up bar and a Zen garden encircling the Lagoon. It will incorporate a Miami-style cabana area, family beach, tide pool areas, and other Elements for residents to enjoy around the calendar.
“This is…a game changer,” says Greg Singleton, president of Metro Development Group.
