Insane skyscraper 'Sky Pool' has glass bottom


Posted on Wednesday, 12 April, 2017 | Comment icon 24 comments

Not recommended for anyone scared of heights. Image Credit: Market Square Tower
Houston's Market Square Tower has a rather unique swimming pool that only the brave dare venture in to.
In a video posted online last week, an intrepid swimmer can be seen stepping off the edge of the building's roof and on to what looks like thin air - a clever trick made possible by the fact that the swimming pool juts out from the top of the building 500 feet above street level.

It's a sensation likely to deter all but the bravest swimmers from attempting to jump in to the water.

The $18,715/month penthouse rental cost is likely to deter all but the richest too.

You are much braver than I will ever be

Heights are not a problem. My only fear would be of the glass panels collapsing.

No amount of money could get me up there.  I'm terrified of heights.  I'll stay on the ground and go to the beach, thankyouverymuch.

I'll gladly take large sums of money to visit the pool, but I ain't getting in!

I just thought of something- when you visit this pool to go for a swim are you supposed to bring your own towel, raft, and a parachute just in case?

There is no amount of money that would get me up there. I couldn't even watch the video!

I'd pay good money to swim in that pool.  But you'd have to pay me heavily to go to Texas. So I'm out I guess, by proxy.

Not gonna lie, I'd swim in this naked.

It's all fun and games until one of the swimsuit concealed Texan handguns goes off, shattering the glass.
