Makes perfect sense.

These can work very well in urban settings, but their design and upkeep can be quite tricky, so if you're going to do one of these, make sure you have them properly engineered for drainage, and back-up systems for leakage to the floor below. Hard experience has taught me they almost are never 100% stable.
