A northeast Houston subdivision will build a 1.5-acre artificial lagoon and sandy beach tailored to look like a Caribbean seashore thanks to patented technology from the Florida-based designer.
The project in Balmoral, a community in the works near Atascocita in northeast Houston, will probably be the second such lagoon in Texas; another in Dallas is expected to open sooner.
The shimmering clear water is produced by a proprietary technology for sonic water filtration, which Man said differs from
conventional pool technology and uses 50 percent less water than a park of the same size. He said the lagoons uses a fraction of the chemicals of a conventional swimming pool, and sport 400 sensors measuring water parameters in real time.
At Balmoral, lagoon construction is expected to begin by late summer or early fall, and open to swimmers in summer 2018, said Jeff Sheenan, director of community affairs and amenity development for Land Tejas.
Home construction will start in late April or early May of this year, and people are expected to start moving into finished houses in the third quarter. When the project is completely built out, within 10 to 12 years, it will have 1,700 home sites, the developers said.
Land Tejas has announced that Balmoral, a 580-acre development coming to Humble, will house a 1.5-acre, crystal clear, beach-edged lagoon. Construction should be completed by Summer 2018.
