Something-is-changing-at Escala-dot-com…could it be the ownership?
So when the bank owns your condo tower, do you get free checking? Just sayin’.
Do they have a basket of lollipops at the door and somebody waiting to ask us about our weekend?
I’m sure the views looking out are fantastic, but the views looking at, not so much. The glass tower plopped onto the faux Grecian Vegas facade is not the sort of enduring architecture dreams are made of. Design really can be better. Proof.
1315 1st Avenue
The menage à trois with the pressing condos is coming to an end.
Is it too much to ask that this building not be torn down?
We realize this is some seriously valuable air above waiting to be lego-ed in with a skinny condo or pop out neighbor expansion. Still, we vote for a slice of light and some historic personality. How about it Seattle? Don’t kill the little building, she holds many fond mammaries and great tails.
Sure, the developers want to fill that slot with a steel rod building. Not to put a kink in those plans, but we want to feel respected.
Come on DPD, stand firm, don’t let us down.
