In the Fifty Shades of Grey books and films, Christian Grey lives on the 31st floor of Escala, the luxury tower in the heart of downtown Seattle. We hope that the floors there are reinforced because if you decide to buy Unit 3001 just below you might be in store for some loud nights depending on what he's getting up to.
Kitschy notoriety aside, $8.8 million still gets you quite a lot in this city. The 3-BR unit comes in at 5,170 square-feet of high-rise luxury living. Floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of a 280 degree view that spans the rest of the city, the Space Needle, Elliott Bay, and the Olympic Mountains. You can also enjoy those views from the 1,000 square feet of private terrace space as well
A private elevator brings you home where you can entertain thanks to a full bar, space for large dining area, and even a kitchen space with bar seating for less formal meals.
Better hope those windows are glazed on the outside because whether you're in bed or the bathtub, you're right up against the outside world. Acrophobics and scopophobics needs not apply.
Of course, because this is Escala, you're also getting luxury building amenities such as 24 hour concierge, private spa, lap pool, and a full catering kitchen & dining area with room for 140 people. We're not even sure we know 140 people...
