The 'Sky Pool' Will Make You Feel Like You're Floating Across London

If you've ever wanted to going for a refreshing swim whilst floating around at 115ft in the air, you'll love the appropriately named and rather majestic looking "Sky Pool".

Stretching 5 meters wide, 25 meters long and with a depth of 3 meters the crystal clear pool is balanced between two buildings, 10 stories high in the heart of South London's Nine Elms district.

"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.

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." - Ballymore Group CEO Sean Mulryan

You don't need to worry about any leaks or worse plunging to your death, the entire pool is encased by 20cm of toughened glass - allowing you to drift high above the hustle and bustle of city life.

The complex is part of the 2,000-home Embassy Gardens development by British architects HAL and its set for completion in 2018 when the units (and therefore access to the pool itself) go on sale.

So if you want to float through the air high above central London you've got 2 years to save up - just don't forget your swimmers.
