A suspended gathering linking buildings in London raises controversy by excluding part of its residents | Scientist

Residents of an apartment complex in southwest London have been able to relax on the hottest days of the year in a hanging poolWhich is 35 meters from the ground.

Connecting the tops of two towers with 14-meter clear acrylic panels.

However, on the Internet, it wasn’t just the fear of heights that sparked the pool controversy.

This is because not all condominium dwellers have access to the site – only those who own apartments costing around £1m (more than R$7m).

Residents of some blocks share ownership – a system in which they own part of the property and pay rent for the rest.

According to the associations that manage these affordable properties, this works so that pool maintenance costs are lower for residents — owners of more expensive units will pay for the service, they say.

On social media, many people have said that they cannot use the swimming pools in the buildings they live in for the same reason.
