Photos: Pools Float 30-Stories In The Air At New 54-Story ‘Home To The 1 Percent’

The developer of the recently completed Turnberry Ocean Club Residences has released photos showing what they say is a design and engineering feat.

The 54-story tower, designed by architects Carlos Zapata and Robert Swedroe, features two infinity cantilevered pools that seem to float in the air parallel to the tower from the 30th floor.

They are a part of the Sky Club Bar at the tower which soars more than 300 feet in the air.

The pools themselves required massive concrete pillars to achieve the floating effect, the developer said.

In total, there are six floors of amenity space, including three floors from level 30-32 where the sky pools are located.

According to a press release from the developer, the tower is “home to the 1 percent.”

County records show that at least 113 of the 154 condos built have been sold as of this week.

Turnberry Ocean Club Residences was developed by Jeff Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development.

No glass bottom? No infinity edge? It lacks vision.

Exactly. Once you’re in the water, it’s as if you’re swimming in any other pool.

The people who bought units with balconies directly below the pool are going to be hating life if there is ever a leak issue.

Not sure in today’s climate I would be parading around telling people this is where the 1% live, but it is Miami after all..

This isn’t Chicago or San Francisco so they are safe from the mobs. They live all over the place anyways and never spend much time in any one place so its not a bother to them.

The one percent in Chicago and San Francisco are safe from the mobs with private security forces, while they cheered on the riots last summer from their blue checkmark Twitter handles.

True, although, they did them scared in Chicago when they lifted the drawbridges into downtown to stymie the hoard of vandals from looting stores and businesses.

Yeah.. then those one percenters in Chicago and San Francisco had the nerve to boo the mob who rioted and stormed the capitol bldg in Wa DC because we saw them beat policemen with flag poles that held the flag of the USA and then had the gall to put their dastardly evil deeds on Facebook.

Those 1% need to be strung up by their money counting thumbs!

Carlos Zapata is the design architect and Robert Swedroe are architects of record. Zapata has designed magnificent buildings in Nyc, Chicago, Vietnam, Iceland, Ecuador and more. Swedroe is an architectural sweat-shop that cranks out condos. He got his start with Morris Lapidus but never seemed to take on the designers flair.

That’s cool and all, but do they have a car elevator?

They don’t even have a fountain in their lobby. Quite sad, innit?

Yet again, an example pools built for Miami highrises that don’t seem like they will get much if any sun. Without the podium one, this building would be the official home to pasty pale 1%’ers.
