Video footage of a story-high glass-bottom swimming pool is catching fire on social media. The pool is located at the top of Market Square Tower, a high-rise apartment building that opened in Houston, Texas, last November. The residential building's management recently posted the footage to their Facebook page , where it has since attracted over 2 million views. Swimmers are protected as they float feet above the ground by 8-inch thick plexiglass , according to International Business Times. But 10 feet of the pool is cantilevered over the rooftop edge. Here's a view from below:.

Facebook Twitter Email. CNN — If spectacular heights give you that sinking feeling, then this is not the swimming pool for you. A video of a new cantilevered glass-bottomed infinity pool, hanging off the 40th floor of an apartment building in downtown Houston, has gone viral. The clip shows a brave soul slipping their bare feet along the pool's eight-inch-thick plexiglass bottom, which sits out 10 feet from the side of Market Square Tower.
But it's even more thrilling when the pool floor is made of glass and extends out over the city below. That's how the new pool at Market Square Tower — a luxury apartment complex in Houston — is set up. The pool is on the building's roof, and there's a section of it that juts out over the edge of the building and has a glass bottom. So when people wade out into that section, they can look down and enjoy the somewhat terrifying sensation of walking above the city.
