Unless the developers of 48 Bond are going low-brow in an attempt to steal the spotlight from neighbors 40 Bond and 25 Bond, we assume the lap pool will not be visible from the sidewalk once the building is complete. Although, the renderings do seem to indicate that a peep show could be in the offing. For now, anyway, there it is for all Bond Street architourists to see. We've never quite understood the appeal of the lap pool?that shallow, narrow exercise accessory that goes mostly unused and drives up monthly maintenance fees like whoa?but something tells us that buyers in this wonky wonder aren't really the type to lose sleep over common charges. But are they exhibitionists?
