MetroPlaces is Proud to Offer the World’s Top Amenity

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


The introduction of MetroLagoons 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 inland areas, showcasing crystal clear blue waters that span in size from 5 acres to over 15 acres! With each surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, swim-up bars, palm trees and sandy beaches, we have created the perfect place to call home.


Whether you take part in all of the recreational activities that a MetroLagoons 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 MetroLagoons community isn’t just a paradise destination, it’s home.

Really big! These multi-acre Lagoons are more than 100 times the size of a normal pool and on average larger than 10 football fields. Specific community Lagoons as follows: Southshore Bay and Brightwater will each be 5 acres, Epperson is over 7 acres and Mirada will be nearly 15 acres in size. All sizes are approximations and are based on current plans.

We estimate townhouse and single-family home prices will start from the $200s to over $700s.

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

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

Great news! The Lagoons’ technology is sustainable and safe for the environment, allowing the use of limited water and energy resources. MetroLagoons® amenities 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, MetroLagoons® amenities 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. MetroLagoons® technology has received several ‘Green Fast Track’ patents from the US patent office due to the environmental sustainability characteristics of this technology.
