ow I'm not one who is really scared of heights. I mean, I don't go all Wallenda brothers and tightrope walk between sky scrapers, but I can deal with going up a few flights of stairs or flying in the safety of a plane.
But I will openly admit that I would steer clear of the new sky pool at Houston’s Market Square Tower, most likely clinging to my deck chair from the safety of solid ground.
Not only is the pool forty-three stories high, but it also has a glass bottom, so it’s as if the floor just drops out and you’re stepping on wet air.
There's also a normal part of the pool, which won't inspire you to feel temporarily like you are either Aquaman or falling to your death, which sounds like a good deal to me.
The view from below is pretty cool, though. Very unassuming.
And from this angle, it might be okay.
Actually, no. I take that back. It still looks terrifying.
But that’s all part of the fun at living at the luxe apartment complex, where monthly rental prices range from $1,805 for a studio to $18,715 for a penthouse.
“Come live the tower life,” the social media copy beckons.
I think I’ll stick to the pool deck…can somebody bring me a drink?
