  • ℹ️ Description
Suspended between two tower blocks in a swimming pool 35m (115 ft) above the ground, the residents of a development in London cooled off during the UK's warmest day this year.

The Sky Pool, described as "the world's first floating pool", is only open to some of the development's residents, where rent is from about £1,800 to £6,500 per month.

They didn't mention the fact that those who live in the "affordable" units in that building aren't allowed to use the pool. ( the "affordable" units are 750K)

Is opened to “Some residents”.. so even if you live in the building you may not be entitled i.e. not rich enough.

Interesting fact, the pool isn't actually fixed either end, it's just "rested" in place to allow for necessary movement.

5 years from now when it collapses and people die, the BBC will be asking how this pool was ever allowed.
