Would you take a dip 35 meters up in London’s first ‘sky pool’?

Glass pool will bridge two 10-storey buildings in Embassy Gardens’ new Battersea development

For anyone wishing to make a high-level splash, London’s latest planned addition to the skyline could be just the thing. A 25-metre swimming pool suspended between two apartment blocks 10 stories up is part of a new development near the former Battersea power station.

The transparent “sky pool” will, the developers say, be the first of its kind in the world. Swimmers will be able to look down 35 meters to the world below as they take a dip, with only 20cm of glass between them and the outside world.

Residents of the buildings, where flats cost upwards of £602,000, will be able to swim between the two, and recover from their exertions on a sky deck which boasts a spa, summer bar and orangery with views of the Houses of Parliament.
