The 12-acre lagoon, which stretches more than a quarter mile end-to-end, is the largest in the nation by length and by waterfront shoreline.
Residents, builder partners, local officials and others attending the invitation-only event were able to sit along the white-sand beach and swim the turquoise waters of the lagoon. Water shows and sky divers added to the fun.
"It was a beautiful day all around and we were very excited for so many of our Lago Mar residents to be able to enjoy this world-class amenity," said Uri Man, Executive Vice President for Land Tejas. "With the white sand beaches, crystal clear water and the amazing water shows featured at Saturday’s event, everyone was able to experience what we call the ‘lagoon life’ all while maintaining respectful distances."
The lagoon is the signature feature of a 100-acre mixed-use entertainment district being built at the entrance to Lago Mar. Future phases of development around the lagoon are planned to include hotels, condo buildings, retail, dining, entertainment, as well as a separate pay-for-access beach club with multiple beaches for the general public with a cabana pool, a two-story swim-up bar on an island, a kid’s beach with water features, a floating obstacle course and a world-class watersports facility including kayaks, paddleboards and small sailboats. Also planned is an event center with a beachfront event lawn for corporate events, weddings and concerts.
"Lago Mar is truly a special place and the best way to join in the excitement is to visit one of our great new homebuilders today," Man said. "We are also finalizing our plans for the retail and pay-for-access portions of the lagoon. We are in talks with several commercial development companies that plan to develop hotels and multi-family condominiums around the lagoon with direct views of the crystal clear water. There are also approximately 300,000 square feet of planned mixed-use development, including restaurants, bars, entertainment and shops that will line the planned waterfront boardwalk promenade. Lago Mar is primed to become Houston’s new waterfront destination."
The Lago Mar lagoon is approximately six times larger than Land Tejas’ first Crystal Lagoons amenity, which opened in 2018 in the master-planned community of Balmoral in Humble. The lagoon in Lago Mar offers more than a mile of shoreline — more than any other Crystal Lagoons amenity in the nation. It holds 24 million gallons of water and the lagoon’s liner system is large enough to cover the entire Houston Galleria mall or 14 NFL football fields. The lagoon surface is equivalent to an approximate 1,350 home swimming pools.
Fifteen homebuilders offer designs in Lago Mar priced from the $200,000s to the $500,000s. In addition to the resident-designated portion of the lagoon and the clubhouse, residents also enjoy a resort pool, clubhouse, workout facilities, playgrounds and a GreenBoLT alternative transportation path for golf carts and electric bikes. Upon completion, Lago Mar will be home to approximately 14,000 residents.
