Los Angeles is a hot city, both figuratively and literally, and the 'Fifth and Hill' condo by developer Jeffrey Fish is designed with that quality in mind. The building is slated to comprise more than a dozen sky pools that will jut out from the sides of its higher stories, giving residents spectacular views of the LA skyline while they swim.

The cantilevered pools in the Fifth and Hill design extend out both widthwise and lengthwise, which lets more daring residents swim far out above the city while tamer residents can still get a residual thrill. Beyond the aggressive cantilevering itself, the pools will be made from transparent material on both the sides and the bottom, and will be arranged in such a way that no pool will block the downward view of a pool above it.
