In 2017 we were bubbling with excitement at the prospect of London's first 'sky pool'... but then it seemed to sink without a trace.
Fear not: Embassy Gardens' 25-metre-long swimming pool — which will link two residential buildings in Nine Elms at the 10th storey level — is now almost completed.
In Colorado, that is.
The Embassy Gardens website reports that the entirely transparent pool (it's made from acrylic) is in its final phase of construction in the US, and now undergoing testing and treatments.
That's not the end of the story though: the pool still needs to be shipped to the UK and safely installed — a job that the team of architects, engineers and consultants describe as "a lengthy and complex process," due to the project "pushing boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering."
And let's be honest, a pool hovering 10 storeys above the cold, hard ground is something you want to get right.
The Sky Pool, then, won't be fitted out in time for this year's sunny weather; it's now expected to open summer 2020.
There is one more catch: you'll need to be a resident of Embassy Gardens to take a dip. Something we previously described as tantamount to pressing your face against the window of a posh restaurant and slobbering down the pane while the punters inside scoff expensive steak.
