Brisbane developer designs Australia's first residential suspended pool

A sky-high pool that will have swimmers floating between apartment towers is on the edge of becoming a reality for Brisbane, with a new development set to host the country’s first residential suspended pool.

The 25-metre pool will effectively bridge the gap between two eight-storey apartment towers, allowing residents to swim between buildings.

Blue Sky Private Real Estate launched the innovative pool design as part of their latest Greenslopes project, Florence.

Only two other suspended pools have been planned in Australia – both part of hotels – making the Florence pool a residential first.

Development manager Edan Norris said he was excited to dive into the project.

“It is about 26.5 meters from the ground to the waters edge,” Mr Norris said. “I’m pretty excited about it.”

 The project targets owner occupiers, who will have exclusive access to the pool.

“Rooftops have become the new generation’s backyard, and there are definitely trends forming for good communal areas,” Mr Norris said.

“This rooftop pool will set a new standard, and also match people’s expectations on what the communal area should be like.”

Florence will be developed on Flora Street in Greenslopes.

The project will feature 107 one, two and three bedroom apartments.

Construction will start in June and is set to finish in September 2017.

A rooftop pool may seem like a must nowadays, but one Australian developer is taking it to another level.

The Florence will boast city views
This suspended pool has been designed for a residential development in Brisbane.
