The CEO of Crystal Lagoons just left Charlotte after securing a deal that he hopes will be finalized over the next few months. The deal would be for the company to build a massive new ‘crystal lagoon’ and water-front development right here in the Queen City.

The company has now announced a total of 11 projects in the U.S., after it has already started 300 other projects around the world (including in Dubai).

It doesn't reference location or anything, but the rendering they show clearly shows it being in Uptown. I'm sure that is just a placeholder though because there is no way something like this would ever be in Uptown. Seems like if something like this were to happen, it would make more sense to utilize one of the quarries in the area when they are done producing. There is on in UCity on Mallard Creek Church that will be shutting down soon or has shut down in the last few years.

First off this would NEVER happen this close to uptown, this would be far away where land is cheap. Charlotte Stories is ridiculous and them photoshopping this into an uptown area means nothing.

Charlotte Stories photo-shopped the development renderings from Miami into a photo of Uptown Charlotte.... what a misleading move. There is NO indication the developer is looking at Uptown Charlotte. This would most likely be in the Lake Norman area, on Lake Wylie (all that open land near Steele Creek) to have the contract between the lake and their ulta-pure crystal water, and I could also see it outside Ballantyne.

Quarry would probably be too deep to fill with that much water. They probably don't have that big of a depth.

Here is a pic of one of their completed projects in Chile. It pumps water from the Pacific, has a max depth of 11.5 feet, covers 20 acres, and has 66 million gallons of water. It has as much water as ~6,000 standard swimming pools in a backyard.
