Luxury apartment buildings are getting more and more creative with their amenities. Take Market Square Tower in Houston, which goes beyond the usual doorman and fitness room. There’s a rooftop infinity pool that hangs over the edge of the building, and happens to also have a glass bottom.

Dubbed “the tallest pool in Texas,” Market Square Tower’s sky pool is 43 stories above downtown Houston. While most of the pool is of the regular, non glass bottomed variety, there is a part of it that hangs over the edge of the building for those brave enough to look down. The cantilevered section is also edged in glass so that the view isn’t obstructed above the water’s surface, either.

Wondering what the experience is like? You’re in luck: The building uploaded a video to their Instagram.

One thing to note with a glass bottomed pool is that yes, you can look down, but people can also look up.

And here is the view from the south penthouse:

Not sure I’d pay $16,430 a month for a grand view of watery butts from my balcony, but hey, someone out there probably will.

Want to take a dip here daily? Available one bedrooms at Market Square Tower start at $2,265.
