Located in the Nine Elms – a place which describes itself as “the greatest transformational story at the heart of London” as well as “a new residential, cultural & business quarter” in “the world’s greatest city” the completed structure of the pool now sits 115 feet up in the air, suspended between two luxury tower blocks.
While it has been reported that access is only open to the complex’s residents (where prices for a flat reportedly range between $850,000 USD and 1.4m USD), Twitter users have alleged it is actually even more exclusive than that, and that only some flat owners have access.
There’s a mistake in this report.
It says “You have to be a resident to use it”, but actually you have to be resident of one of the unaffordable apartments to use it. The residents in the affordable apartments are not allowed to use the pool, or the front door.
Hundreds of wary comments have built up underneath the BBC’s Twitter post, with one user writing: “How to combine all the possible phobias in one tiny pool: Falling, drowning, virus exposure, swimming in the urine of strangers…That’s a hard ‘no’ for me!”
How to combine all the possible phobias in one tiny pool:
Falling, drowning, virus exposure, swimming in the urine of strangers…
Likewise, on Instagram, users worried aloud that in a pool like this is would be pretty obvious who the “pee culprits” would be as well as writing ~zingers~ like: “drowning in mid air is the new definition of wealth.”
