I snapped this interesting moment in Belltown today.
If you saw any brown raindrops, well, now you know.
The Escala, the much anticipated 31 story condominium building that is planned to tower over 4th and Virginia, will arrive sometime in 2009. The Escala recently won three Gold awards including Best condo floor plan at The Nationals 2008, the nation's "largest and most prestigious competition" in the homebuilding industry. From an onsite spa to a private dinner club, this place seems like it will be pretty darn spectacular.
Although it's hard at this point to believe the lump of dirt and beams I walked past today will soon become an extravagant tower.
before... and after.
