Club Cielo at Escala

By on September 19, 2008 in Denny Triangle | Midtown, Feature with 5 Comments

Yesterday, Escala unveiled Club Cielo, a $30 million private club and the first to open in Seattle in more than two decades. The exclusive 25,000 square foot Club Cielo was selected to provide signature amenities to residents of Escala, including venues to socialize, entertain and refresh.

Here’s just a few of Club Cielo’s premier services and amenities:

  • An exclusive dining room and bar, including a garden terrace.
  • Full-service day spa offering massage therapy, facials, manicures and pedicures.
  • A professional grade 5,200+ square foot fitness center offering strength and cardio training equipment, two resistance lap pools, a yoga and Pilates studio and on-site certified instructors.
  • A large theatre / multi-purpose room for private screenings, presentations or parties.
  • A climate-controlled Wine Cave for up to 9,000 bottles, with an adjoining intimate dining room.
  • Access to private chefs, car service, housekeeping service, personal assistants and animal care and dog walking services.

Club Cielo will also offer a limited number of memberships for non-residents.

Scheduled for completion in 2009, the signature Escala development will have 275 luxury condominium homes ranging from $500,000 to well over $5,000,000. Club Cielo will be operated by Columbia Hospitality whose other managed properties include the Salish Lodge & Spa and the Kenwood Inn and Spa in Sonoma Valley.

    puhLEEZ. Here’s a quote from the Cielo website: “…offering five-star lifestyle amenities in a fun and unpretentious setting.”

    I wonder how the pretentious lot lives.

    ‘course I’m not jealous. Really. I’m not.

    Gawd. I give it 5 months before people get tired of paying hoa dues for this. I doubt this will ever come to fruition. Why would someone move downtown…only to stay in to eat. I wonder if they will even complete construction on escala. It’s got Hotel 1 syndrome written all over it.

  3. Ben Kakimoto says:

    Residents will be contributing a minimum $250/mo (paid quarterly) towards Club Cielo in addition to regular HOA dues, which is in place to guarantee a minimum level of service/usage of the club. The additional fees won’t appeal to many potential buyers. As far as a comparison to 1 Hotel, Lexas/Midby secured financing for Escala, Starwood Capital/Avalon didn’t/couldn’t for 1 Hotel. 1 Hotel also tried to sell a particular form of residential units (condotels) which isn’t allowed under current city ordinance.

  4. I am going to Seattle in a fortnight. I can’t wait to check out this place, even if it is only from the outside, they have nothing like it in the UK.
