The 25-meter-long (82-foot-long) transparent Sky Pool that links two apartment blocks at the Embassy Gardens development at Nine Elms by EcoWorld Ballymore in London has just opened. It will allow residents and their guests to swim 35-meters (115-feet) in the air while taking in panoramic views of the city, including the US Embassy building. One thing to note is that the pool wasn’t built in Europe, but rather Colorado before being transported 5,000 miles to its final destination near the Thames. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Other amenities include a Sky Deck, complete with a spa, summer bar and Orangery that offer sweeping views of the Houses of Parliament as well as the London Eye. Just one caveat: a two-bedroom apartment in Embassy will set you back over £1 million ($1.4 million), but for those with the means, the pool alone may seal the deal.
