World’s first ever ‘sky pool’ to be suspended 115 feet in the air in London

With skyscrapers climbing nearer and nearer to the sky, a developer in London added the latest addition to its high-rise buildings–sky pool.

Developed by the Ballymore Development Group, the “sky pool” is part of the Embassy Gardens development at Nine Elms and is transparent.

It is a structure-free pool that links two 10-story buildings together. There is also a spa and summer bar at the sky deck for residents to see the London’s scenery. If you are afraid of heights, you may go for the indoor pool.

“My vision for the sky pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering, I wanted to do something that had never been done before,” said Sean Mulryan, the Ballymore’s chairman and CEO, according to a report by The Guardian.

“The experience of the pool will be truly unique, it will feel like floating through the air in central London,” he added.

With such a design, the flat prices start from £602,000 (approx. US$764,810) and they will be ready by 2018. Any takers?
