Celebs Love 'Grey'!
These stars love 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'
If you’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey, you know that some seriously steamy scenes go down at the gorgeous Escala condos, and now, you have a chance to take a peek inside!

Settled in the affluent Belltown area of Seattle, WA, this location is perfect for young, affluent professionals (much like Christian Grey from the erotic novel), and now fans are finally getting a better look at the luxurious residency. The square footage of units vary, but there are included amenities such as a private spa, a gym with yoga studio, private dining room, full catering kitchen and dining area with room for 140 people, and theater room.

As if that weren’t enough, there are also stunning views of downtown Seattle, perfect for any “romantic” rendezvous.

If you’re not up to speed on the book Fifty Shades of Grey, it was originally written as Twilight fan fiction by EL James, but it was later picked up by a publisher, and now Universal is in the process of making a film based on the steamy novel. It centers around mysterious millionaire Christian Grey and his submissive-domination sexual relationship with young college student Anastasia Steele, with many of their steamy scenes taking place at Escala luxury condos, where Christian calls home.

There’s been lots of casting talk, and we made a list of people we think would be great for the film. Check it out below!
