Depending on how you feel about heights, this sky pool at an apartment building in Houston, Texas will either be an immediate addition to your bucket list or the stuff of nightmares. (I fall into the latter category.) That’s right — a glass bottomed pool that sits 500 feet above the street is going viral and, depending on who you ask, it’s either the most amazing or the most terrifying pool in the world.

Market Square Tower, a new luxury apartment complex in the Lone Star State, lists the sky pool as one of its amenities. As if the sheer height isn’t frightening enough, the pool extends 10 feet out from the building.

Check out the view from the ground:


If you’re brave enough to swim in the sky pool, you’ll get a pretty stellar view of the skyline.

Naturally, people have a lot of feelings about the sky pool — they’re either packing their bags for a visit, or running really fast in the opposite direction.


It looks super cool and all, but it’ll be a hard pass from me.
