A view inside the real life Escala
It’s a condo building with everything a billionaire bachelor would want, and a place that many “Fifty Shades” fans are aching to learn about.
Escala IS in fact, a real world building in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle and also the scene of many racy romps between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in “50 Shades of Grey.”
This luxurious building is among Seattle’s most prestigious addresses. The all-inclusive Escala tower hosts 270 grand condominium homes up to 16,000 square feet. Escala is a little more like a five-star hotel than a condo building with amenities like semi-private elevators for each residence, a private spa, a gym with a yoga studio, a theatre room, and a wine cellar with private dining room. Each home also comes with floor to ceiling windows that display classic Seattle views of the city skyline and the surrounding mountains and Elliott Bay.
If your bank account is anything like Christian Grey’s, the building boasts 5,200-square-foot penthouses on the market for $4M to $6M.
