New Sky Pool Lets You Swim 115 Feet Above London
“It will feel like floating through the air in central London.”
London is a town better known for its rainy days and fog that its pool culture, but a new housing development is building a pool that will rival anything you’d see in L.A. or Las Vegas. The Embassy Gardens development just unveiled its plans for the first ever Sky Pool. Rising ten-stories above ground, this see-through, glass-bottom pool is suspended between two apartment buildings on the south bank of the River Thames.
The pool measures 82’ x 16’, is just over 9’ deep and will be accessible by over a thousand residents at the Embassy Gardens development. According to Ballymore Group’s CEO, Sean Mullyran, the mastermind behind Sky Pool, “My vision for the Sky Pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering… The experience of the pool will be truly unique; it will feel like floating through the air in central London.”
If you’d like to move into the Embassy Gardens, prices start at £602,000 ($940,279). No word on whether skinny dipping will be allowed in the Sky Pool.
