Escala Update

The Escala Condo’s public design preview event is still two weeks away and anticipation is building. However, Escala has pre-released a number of units at special introductory pricing and a quite a few reservations have already been placed. Reservations can be made with a $10,000 deposit which converts to purchase & sale contracts in the Fall.

Prices for the design preview release on July 27th will be higher than the current release allotment. This is the most opportune time to reserve a unit for your next home or investment.

Here’s an illustration of a floor plan for floors 4-6. It’s a little difficult to see but there are 12 units, 4 on each end and 4 in the center. Even the one bedroom units on the lower levels have semi-private vestibules.

Escala released it’s second allotment of homes earlier this week to those who had 2nd or higher position reservations in the first release with price ranges approximately 10% higher.

Escala also updated it’s website with revised floorplans and renderings.

    Rock – prior to the preview event Escala had released about 23% of the units and units went quickly with many 2nd & 3rd position reservations. Those 2nd & 3rd position holders were given priority reservations on the second release which brings the total released units to about 50% of the total.

    As far as price ranges…the 3rd floor is the lowest residential level with 1 bds starting at $500K and 2 bds starting around $880k. Of course, the higher up, the higher the price range. Upper floor 2 & 3 bds units are all over $1.5 mil.

    As far as appreciation, those who reserved during the first release have now seen about a 10% increase in value. For example, during the first release, a 4th floor 1 bd unit ranged from $440 to $489K. During the 2nd release, the same unit on the third floor ranges from $485 – $539K.

    Given the uniqueness of this project I suspect it will continue to see a healthy valuation. However, other projects are planned and will be built and they may impact the overall market.
