WTS International to manage Metro Lagoons project in Florida
POSTED 14 Aug 2018 . BY Tom Walker
Spa and fitness consultancy and management firm WTS International (WTS) has won a contract to manage the Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons development in Florida.

The seven-acre, purpose-built lagoon forms part of the Epperson master-planned community, described as the first ‘smart gigabit’ community in the US. ??Epperson is part of the Connected City concept, the first residential environment with up to 1GB broadband speeds throughout its neighbourhoods and inside every home.

The Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons project offers residents the opportunity to live a "coastal lifestyle inland", in a development which includes private cabanas, a swim-up bar, yoga lawn and family beach.??

Eric Wahlbeck, MD of Metro Development Group – the company behind the project – said: "I’m very excited to be working with WTS International on Metro Development’s first Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons, where we’re offering a slice of paradise to residents.

“We’re collaborating toward a common vision to create a dynamic lagoon lifestyle that will bring an elevated level of luxury experiences to our resident families of the Epperson community."

WTS first engaged with Metro Development Group on the lagoon project in 2016 – providing design review and programming consultation services – and, earlier this year, agreed to provide pre-opening and management services for the facility.

"The Epperson Lagoon is a unique place and we’re delighted to be a part of this ‘first’ in the US," said WTS’ corporate operations director Amy Gallogly.

"In addition to running the day-to-day operations of this 7.5-acre lagoon, our highly-skilled lifestyle team will be implementing a wide variety of events and programmes."

The facility recently held its grand opening celebration to mark the completion of the Crystal Lagoon, with global ambassador and Olympian Michael Phelps in attendance.
