From a very young age you discover that pools are awesome. Little kiddie pools to lavish pools with hot tubs and waterfalls flowing into it. Pools are so fantastic that from my early childhood to even this very day, I spend the entire spring attempting to befriend several individuals who have a pool, so that when the scorching hot days in the summer come, I would have numerous “friends” at my disposal to use them for their pools. Hey don’t judge, a non-pool shitbrick has to do what a non-pool shitbrick has to do to keep cool in the summer. I went to great lengths to get an opportunity to splish-splash in a shitty above-ground pool, so I can’t imagine the lows I’d stoop to get in this amazing “sky pool.”
Ambitious developers in London are taking on a project to build a pool that will be a bridge between two apartment buildings. The sky pool will stretch over 80-feet, will be 15-feet wide and be 6-feet deep. The only thing keeping this hanging human aquarium from smashing to the ground down below is 6-inch thick glass. This is the first pool where if you pee your pants in the pool, people will understand.
The pool will allow residents to swim between the development’s roof-top bar, spa, and greenhouse. However all this novelty luxury comes at a pretty penny; prices for apartments and penthouses start at $942,572.
“My vision for the Sky Pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering,” said Ballymore Group CEO Sean Mulryan. “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.”
Construction begins this year in London’s Nine Elms district, and they expect to be done in 2018. Well looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me, I have less than three years to make friends with someone who lives in the Embassy Gardens.
The only obvious question that remains is how soon after this pool in the sky is built will people have sex in it? Like will the pool be christened the same night it opens or will people show some dignity and restraint by waiting a week or two? If I was a tenet there I’m banging first night so that I claim the dubious title of “First Person To Fuck In A Sky Pool.” It will be quick though, water sex is hurty.
