Planning is underway for the construction of a 48-acre entertainment destination in Glendale, Arizona.
The Crystal Lagoons company, with offices in Miami, wants to build the project not far from the State Farm Stadium, which is located on the west side of the city at 1 Cardinals Drive.
Centerpiece of the facility: an 11-acre beach lagoon.
That lagoon will feature a bar built on a vertical structure allowing it to rise some 135 feet in the air.
To be called the Crystal Lagoons Island Resort, the project will also include a hotel, 4D theater, amusement park rides, and retail space.
Work is expected to begin later this year on a project that should be completed by the fall of 2022.
With locations in Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East, Crystal Lagoons specializes in the development of crystalline lagoons of any size, all designed to create beach-like environments even in the middle of a desert.
With projects in various stages of development in California and Florida, among other places, the Crystal Lagoons company, without revealing a timetable, has announced plans to eventually build more than 1,000 such locations in the U.S.
