Dubbed ‘Sky Pool’, the Market Square Tower infinity pool, located on the 42nd floor of a Texas apartment hotel, extends three metres over the edge looking 150 metres straight down to the busy street below.
They say in Texas everything is bigger and by all accounts, this luxury Houston property is living up to the claim.
Predictably, the video below of a resident walking out over the pool’s edge – supported by a 20cm-thick plexiglass floor – went viral.

As you’d imagine, reaction to the video has been mixed. Commentary has ranged from “Yes please, can’t wait!” to “Oh hell no!” and plenty of superlatives in between.
For guests and residents too intimidated to swim ‘on the edge’, thankfully there’s a more modest second pool on the fourth floor!
