You’d figure that planning to construct a swimming pool made entirely of glass in between two apartment buildings whilst being suspended 10 stories high up in the air is… unthinkable, undoable, and totally insane right?

London developers are claiming that this will be the first glass-bottom sky pool

The Ballymore developers in London don’t think so. Their ambitious concept for a “sky pool” is beautiful to say the least: it will be transparent, 82-feet-long, engirdled with 8-inch-thick glass, and will give tenants a breathtaking view of the Palace of Westminster.

Unrivaled views while you’re swimming and floating 10 stories high up in the air

Here’s what the CEO of the Ballymore Group, Sean Mulryan, had to say about the sky pool:

I wanted to do something that had never been done before. The Sky Pool’s transparent structure is the result of significant advancements in technologies over the last decade. The experience of the pool will be truly unique; it will feel like floating through the air in central London.

The sky pool will be located in central London’s Embassy Gardens development

If all goes well, the project will be finished in the next three years

Blimey! We’re totally jealous that this project is bespoken for Londoners only. Would you take a dip into the world’s first glass sky pool?
