A Texas apartment complex is giving residents a chance to swim in the sky.

The glass-bottom pool at Market Square Tower gives those brave enough to swim in it a unique view of downtown Houston. According to the Houston Chronicle, the pool, located 40 stories up, “extends 10 feet beyond the side of building and 500 feet above Preston street.”

The apartment complex posted a video of what it looks like to walk in the glass-bottom portion of the pool to Facebook. The bottom of the pool is comprised of an 8-inch-thick layer of plexiglass. For those who aren’t into swimming above it all, there is another (opaque-bottom) pool located on the fourth floor.

The Houston Chronicle reports that living at the complex could cost you anywhere “from $1,805 for a 564-square foot studio, to $18,715 per month for a 2,993-square-foot penthouse.”
