The New York East River Is Getting a Floating Swimming Pool

The New York East River open-air floating swimming pool project by non-profit organizer +Pool has been approved after ten years.

Designed by Los Angeles studio PlayLab, the saltwater +Pool shaped like a plus sign comes with a lap pool and area for children and will be able to clean the river water without chemicals. The floating swimming pool could filter more than 600,000 gallons of water per day using software developed by the United States’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to model a membrane filtration system.

The +Pool organization was co-founded by Playlab’s Archie Lee Coates IV and Jeff Franklin with Family’s Dong-Ping Wong, with Family having been dissolved.

10 years have been spent raising funds and developing the technology with plans stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic until the organization received an official go signal from New York’s Economic Development Corporation. The floating swimming pool is expected to finish in two years.
