Metro Development Group, is a leading Tampa developer of master planned communities best known for Metro Places, Connected City and communities featuring multi-acre lagoons. 

It’s official – the first-ever Crystal Lagoons amenity in the nation is full and Metro Development Group is unveiling the world’s top amenity at their newest community of Epperson in Pasco County.

Media is invited to witness the unveiling of the first full Crystal Lagoon amenity in the nation and see firsthand why Metro has earned the distinction of being the first developer to inaugurate a Crystal Lagoons amenity in the U.S. 

 Metro Development Group commemorated the first-ever Crystal Lagoon amenity in the U.S. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and notable guest speakers.  

 Photo and video opportunities included:

  • Metro Development Group unveiled the first full Crystal Lagoon amenity in the nation with 7.5 acres of crystal-clear water with a ceremonious ribbon-cutting and Champagne toast
  • Interview opportunities with Metro Development Group President Greg Singleton and Crystal Lagoons Regional Director Christopher Souza
  • Tour of the Crystal Lagoon amenity including Gasparilla Island
  • Unveiling of a monument showcasing the official seal of the first Crystal Lagoon amenity in the U.S.
  • Live musical entertainment, food and drinks

Metro Development Group first partnered with Crystal Lagoons in September 2015 to be the first developer to bring these crystal-clear lagoons to the U.S.  This began a series of “firsts” as Metro was the first to get approved plans, first to break-ground, first to fill, and now Metro will finally unveil the first Crystal Lagoon amenity in the U.S. 

As previously announced, to mark the occasion, Metro is planning an exciting grand opening celebration in spring 2018 where Olympic Gold Medalist and Crystal Lagoons Global Ambassador Michael Phelps is scheduled to appear. 

Renderings of the features around the Epperson lagoon include a waterslide, private cabanas, in-water obstacle platform, swim-up bar, tidal pool, restaurant, family beach, yoga lawn, an entertainment plaza and an area for special events. For further information on Epperson, visit
