If you have a fear of heights, look away now.

A video of a pool, hanging 500 feet above the ground in Houston has gone viral, making viewers feel incredible queasy.

The 42-storey-high glass bottom pool is part of a new apartment building in the Texas city, allowing residents to splash around on the tallest clear, cantilevered pool in the country.

An 8-foot portion of the pool hangs over the edge of the building, suspended above a busy road below.

A video posted by the Market Square Tower apartment complex to Facebook, showing someone tentatively walking out over the floating platform, has attracted over 2 million stunned viewers.

There’s no chance of falling though, as the pool is made of a 5.5-inch thick acrylic plastic and is made to withstand hurricane conditions.

Engineering firm Walter P. Moore and Reynolds Polymer worked together to create the design using special waterproof concrete and epoxy-coated rebar.

Renters with an adventurous streak can sign up for a 564-square foot studio for $1,805, or cough up $18,715 per month for a 2,993-square foot penthouse.

The dazzling infinity pool is one of the most attractive features of the new apartment complex, which also boasts a poker suite, cinema, virtual golf simulator, wine cellar and a spa.

Still, you'll need a stomach as strong as your income to make this your regular swimming spot.
