Ballymore Group and Eco World unveiled plans for Embassy Gardens, a new Thames-side development in Battersea. The complex will feature a breathtaking suspended swimming pool that will bridge across two new 10-storey apartment buildings. The “SkyPool,” will be 25 m (82 ft) long, 5 m (16 ft) wide and 3 m (10 ft) deep, without any additional frame or support.

“My vision for the sky pool stemmed from a desire to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering,” said Ballymore Group chairman and CEO, Sean Mulryan. “I wanted to do something that had never been done before.”
