Metro Places is Proud to Offer the World’s Top Amenity

At long last, the world’s most exciting and transformative amenity is coming to the United States, right here in Florida and proudly brought to you by Metro Development Group.

The introduction of Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons® will forever change the way you view coastal living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida. We have brought the best of the coastline to some of the most rapidly growing and sought after areas, with crystal clear blue waters that span in size from 7 acres to over 10 acres. Each will be surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, beauty and tropical relaxation.

Whether you take part in all of the recreational activities that a Crystal Lagoons® amenity will provide or simply lounge while enjoying the incredible view, these communities will boast an elevated lifestyle found only in select spots throughout the world.

Closer than you think and more affordable than you would imagine, a Metro Lagoons community isn’t just a paradise destination, it’s home.

We’ve got answers

We are excited to announce that there will be FOUR Metro Lagoons® in West Central Florida, exclusive to Metro Places. Two of these lagoons will be in Pasco County just north of SR-54 and to the east of I-75, not too far from our current community of Union Park. A lagoon in Southern Hillsborough County just east of US-301 on SR-674 situated directly across the street from our current community, Sereno. One lagoon in Lee County in North Ft. Myers, just one mile east of I-75 from exit 143.

Planned sizes range from 7 acres to over 10 acres (100 times the size of a normal pool or larger than 4 football fields.)

We estimate townhouse and single-family home prices will start from the $200s to over $500s.

While we cannot be certain of an exact date due to construction processes and permitting requirements, our hope is to have Crystal Lagoons® in 2017. However, model homes in these communities will begin soon and are targeted for completion later this year or early next. Check back here for updates or sign-up on our waitlist to stay informed of our progress and completion dates.

We are finalizing our builder list but currently we plan to work with Lennar, Homes by WestBay, David Weekley Homes, DR Horton, Beazer and more.

There are numerous Crystal Lagoons around the world in places like Chile, Panama, Paraguay, Mexico, Peru, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bolivia, Argentina, Columbia, Dubai, etc. Metro Development Group is proud to bring the first Crystal Lagoons® to the United States. Learn more at

Water sports that are man-powered without motors like kayaks, peddle boats, diving, paddle boards, trampolines, slides, snorkeling, etc. Each of the communities will have amenity offerings tailor-made to the scope of these Lagoons.

Great news! Crystal Lagoons® are much better for the environment from a water consumption standpoint than agricultural use and cow pasture use. The Lagoons’ technology is sustainable and safe for the environment, allowing the use of limited water and energy resources. Crystal Lagoons® use 100 times less chemical products and 50 times less energy than traditional swimming pools, consumes only 2% of the energy needed by conventional filtration systems, fully complies with the most stringent water quality standards and consume 30 times less water than a typical 18-hole golf course. Plus, Crystal Lagoons® capture direct rainwater so that required make-up in some locations can be zero and it should be noted that the lagoons can be filled with almost any type of water including brackish water and salt water, using potable water is not a requirement. Crystal Lagoons® technology has received several ‘Green Fast Track’ patents from the US patent office due to the environmental sustainability characteristics of this technology.
