SKY POOL HANGS 500 FEET ABOVE GROUND ATOP HOUSTON TOWER


A Houston high-rise is drawing attention thanks to a video of its most popular gimmick — a glass-bottom swimming pool on the top floor. The residential Market Square Tower posted a video to Facebook showing a swimmer walking from the main area of the Sky Pool — on the 42nd floor — to a 10-foot area that juts out from the edge of the building and has a transparent floor. The bottom of the pool, 8 inches of plexiglass, makes it appear as though the swimmer is suspended 500 feet over the ground. The designers said the Sky Pool was inspired by a similar one in Dubai.
