Sapphire Bay is planned as a 117-acre, $1 billion mixed-use development. The first phase includes the crystal lagoon with a synchronized water and video show. There’s also going to be a resort and conference center, marina and the surf and beach club. The first phase of the development located off Interstate 30 is scheduled to open in 2023.

Developers recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for a crystal lagoon project planned in Rowlett. “We look forward to building all of the quality amenities that will include a resort hotel, convention center, surf park and public trail along the beautiful shores of Lake Ray Hubbard,” Marc S. English, the project’s co-developer and president of Sapphire Bay Land Development, said in a statement. “It will be a game changer for Rowlett!”

Plans for the entire Sapphire Bay development call for 1.4 million square feet of commercial space and 1,600 residential units.

Developers in Prosper recently built a smaller version of the popular water feature as part of the Windsong Ranch residential community on U.S. Highway 380.
