What people think of a transparent pool between skyscrapers

Social media users expressed apparent fear of the structure standing the test of time, citing previous glass structures that had collapsed. Many others however frowned at the wastage of resources expended in its construction.

@ATHOMEActivism stated:

"It may look like an achievement in engineering, however, it is actually about inequality, greed and waste.
"Pools in the sky are gross."

@Ade1701 remarked:

"Dazzle Dazzle, but this is the developer @ballymore which pockets obscene profits whilst endangering the lives of leaseholders and residents through unsafe and unfit buildings with flammable cladding, faulty wiring, flammable wooden decking, endless leaks…"

"Don't look safe to me. Especially when you hear of builders cutting corners to save a few bucks. All it wants is one hairline crack like in Jurassic Park 2. Not a good idea. Enjoy your swim!"
