L.A.’s expanding skyline may receive its most eye-catching building by 2023!
Just the thought of swimming in a pool with a glass bottom, 53 stories high, generates butterflies in your stomach. If developer Jeffery Fish gets approval by the Los Angeles City Council to move forward, Angelenos may have the opportunity to take a dip while suspended in the air. (That is if you’re invited to the condo of your millionaire friend, of course.)
New renderings of the one-of-a-kind skyscraper have been released and the design sure is wild.
Fish is teaming up with architecture firm Arquitectonica and the duo has envisioned a Jenga-like tower with terraces and, as know, cantilevered swimming pools! The pools will stick out of multiple sides of the building, some of which would hover over the above Downtown’s popular rooftop bar, Perch.
Cantilevered pools have been built in homes and hotels for years but this would be the first time they would make an appearance in LA.
The midcentury-inspired tower would stand 53 stories tall, making it one of the highest in the city. Since everything is still in the approval process, it’s undecided if the building is going to be made of condos, hotel rooms, or a combination of both.
