Market Square Tower


Soaring to a height of 500 feet, Market Square Tower offers commanding views of the Houston skyline and surrounding areas. One of the remarkable features of the 40-story luxury apartment tower comes at the very edge of the penthouse level — the amenity deck and pool — which has earned the tower the distinction of having "the tallest clear, cantilevered pool in the United States" and the first such in Texas.

The infinity-edged pool challenges swimmers to venture 10 feet beyond the building's edge atop a transparent acrylic overhang through which they can view the downtown streets 500 feet below. The Sky Pool has captured widespread media coverage for its impressive engineering and is attracting the attention of risk-takers worldwide, even though it is for residents only.

Walter P Moore collaborated with aquarium specialists during early design stages of the pool, which is reinforced with waterproof concrete and epoxy-coated rebar. The cantilevered extension is 8-inch-thick clear acrylic and is designed to withstand hurricane conditions.

In addition to the Sky Pool, the luxurious high-rise features amenities such as a poker suite, game room, indoor basketball court, virtual golf simulator, movie theater, cyber lounge, demonstration kitchen, and a temperature-controlled wine room with private lockers. Market Square Tower is elevating the standards for luxury in Houston and worldwide.
