World's first ever 'sky pool' will let you swim through the air

Forget about infinity pools. This 'sky pool' made of glass will let you swim 155 feet above the ground.

If you're scared of heights, this might not be the pool for you.

Developers in London are building what they claim is the world's first 'sky pool' — a 25-meter-long swimming pool suspended 10 stories in the air between two blocks of luxury flats.


The transparent pool at Embassy Gardens will be three meters deep with a water depth of 1.2 meters, and will be constructed with the help of aquarium designers using 20-cm-thick glass. The pool will allow residents to swim between the development's roof-top bar, spa, and orangery (a walkway will be available as well), with prices for apartments and penthouses in the complex starting at £602,000 ($942,572).

Embassy Gardens development at Nine Elms, a huge £15bn building project in south-west London which is creating thousands of homes, many of them in luxury apartment blocks. There is an indoor pool for the fainthearted.

A 'sky deck' will include a bar, a spa and bird's eye views of the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, the city's giant landmark Ferris wheel.


"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," Chairman and CEO of Ballymore development group Sean Mulryan said.

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

The sky pool project is expected to be finished in 2018.
