The Wadhwa group is building The Aquaria Grande in Mumbai, India, planning to feature a swimming pool on the balcony of select apartments in the complex.
So, forget Zwembalkons, as the building has yet to go under construction and may just be an idea on paper. The Aquaria Grande is a real place being built right now.

With huge picture frame windows, massive vaulted ceilings, personal green spaces, large patios, motion sensor lighting, and ozone swimming pools, every tiny detail has been scrutinized.
Aquaria Grande, the new towers in Mumbai, India, will feature swimming pools enclosed in glass instead of balconies.
Aquaria Grande, the 37-storey skyscrapers were the result of a collaboration between Hong Kong-based architect James Law and Indian real estate company Wadhwa Group.
The complex would have 200 apartments, three levels of car parking, a gym and sauna.
But not everybody feels inspired by the ambitious vision, with technology blog Gizmodo describing it as an “architectural nightmare”.

Writer Jesus Diaz claims on the site that the design is a “deadly accident waiting to happen”.
Jesus Diaz adds: “No matter what you want to call this, I would call it crazy.”
Another blogger for the mymodernmet site, however, appeared to find the idea of swimming pool balconies more appealing.
Contributor Pinar said the design represented an “unbelievable skyscraping residential complex”.
She said the pools were among its “most outstanding and eye-popping features”.
