Suncoast Partners in Architectural History – Market Square Tower – the “Sky Pool”

Suncoast Post-Tension supplied unbonded post-tensioning products including the Suncoast SRS® (Stud Reinforcement System) as well as engineered installation drawings for this new luxury high-rise apartment building in Houston, TX.

View the video below to learn more about the building that enables tenants and guests to seemingly “walk on air” as tiny cars zip along the busy street 500 feet below in Houston, Texas!

The infinity pool of Market Square Tower, also known as the Sky Pool, is on the 42nd floor and extends 10 feet over the side of the building.
Heart-pounding footage shows a brave resident walking around with ease on the 8-inch thick plexiglass while captivated online viewers watch in terror or amazement.

A new level of luxury:

The Escazu Village project is an upscale, mixed-use project in the heart of San Jose and a great example of our work together. Suncoast provided all post-tensioning material, specialized installation drawings, and stressing equipment.
