World’s First Transparent ‘Sky Pool’ 115 Feet Above London Nearly Finished

World’s First Transparent ‘Sky Pool’

Do you remember the one of a kind pool that was supposed to be opened this summer in London, but got delayed, because of the Corona. Well, guess what: it will be opened really soon. While the date is yet to be confirmed, rumor has it, it will be opened in the summer.

The all awesome 25-meter long pool hangs 35 meters (115 feet) above the ground and has been made between two buildings in Embassy Gardens, a new residential neighborhood in Nine Elms, Vauxhall. The last construction work touches are being polished off in hopes of integrating it to the public in a few months’ time.

The aquarium-type pool is hanging 115 feet above London will be loaded with 148,000 liters of water. It was made from acrylic and is 25 meters total in length. Swimmers in this elegant pool will be able to love central London views while hanging about between two apartment buildings, which is ten stories high.

“The much-anticipated SKY POOL has been lifted into place at Embassy Gardens today, by one of the largest mobile cranes in the world. The crane has a load capacity of 750 tonnes,” Embassy Gardens shared on Instagram back in late September. “The acrylic structure has undergone rigorous hydrostatic testing: safety factors 20 times more extensive than what would be carried out on a typical pedestrian or road bridge structure.”
