Escala Condos – Midtown Seattle

escala2.jpgThe Escala Condominium is planned for the “Midtown” district near the Westin Hotel. Midtown is snuggled between the downtown core, Belltown and Denny Triangle…a marketing concoction rather than a place name.

The 330 foot luxury highrise will include 280 homes and will break ground this year with a planned Summer 2008 occupancy.

Planned units will range between 900 sq ft to 4,500 sq ft. However, the open floor plans are customizable and buyers can combined units to create a larger space. Penthouse units can be as large as 16,000 sq ft. Exterior decks will make up approximately 15-20% of the square footage.

The building will feature a spa, library, billiard room, theatre/screening room, fitness center with a lap pool, a catering kitchen, a formal dining room and an events center. Private residential elevators will open to private and semi-private vestibules that are completely customizable to residents’ design tastes. All parking will be located below grade.

    I believe it will be a 12000sf sales center with a full size model home.

  2. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    That makes more sense. I was thinking 1,200 was a bit small.

  3. CondoCow says:

    What is going on at Escala these days??? Buyers… what is happening with the prices and current sales. I heard all of their main sales associates have resigned. I also heard they are only 25% sold (all availalbe units). Is this true? With the price depreciation from pre-sales what are you buyers going to do if your unit has depreciated more that 5%? Are you going to walk from the earnest money?

  4. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Escala is in the same boat as the other under construction projects, hurt by the down market. But, it does one thing going for it. It was the last major new development to receive funding and the last to start building. When complete it won’t have competition from other new construction condos. And, if the market does bottom out before then, they likely do ok. I’m sure the proposed Heron/Pagoda project had to have impacted sales as most Easterly facing units would be obscured by the larger Heron/Pagoda. The did have a change in the on-site sales staff, some resigned.

    Took a look at the Escala. Amazing Building. That Chandelier they have in the entrance would be reason enough to live there… Take a look at that Chandelier ! It’s OVER THE TOP.

  6. Marsha Jasons says:

    This building is not just unattractive architecturally, it is a garish mess from the front door onward. It would be more at home in Las Vegas than the NW. The lack of sales says it all and the latest attempt with there “designer models” is lame too – truly astonishing that so much money was wasted on this dissapointment. There are many other residential towers in Seattle that are far better.
