Breathtaking views, convenient amenities, and modern decor are cornerstones of living in a high-rise condo in Seattle.

5 reasons to choose high-rise living in Seattle

When you're standing atop the Space Needle or the Columbia Tower, a big part of the wow factor is how many floors you are off the ground. Not to mention the incredible view! Imagine waking up to a similar view every morning and literally living in the clouds. If that sounds like a dream come true, maybe condo living is right for you.

Olga Dyckman, founder of the Seattle Condo Group, is dialed into the vertical living scene in downtown Seattle, closing hundreds of sales that have added up to hundreds of millions of dollars. She understands value as much as she understands beauty in the real estate market. Olga has worked on multiple iconic high-rise properties, including Olive 8, Escala, and 5th and Madison.

Here are five reasons why you might consider working with Olga so you can start living higher off the ground:

Limitless views

In one of Olga's current listings in the Escala building, massive windows showcase panoramic views of the Seattle skyline and the water and mountains beyond. The higher you go, the better it gets, and this particular condo is on the 22nd floor of the 31-story building.


The Escala building is perfectly situated at the southern end of Belltown, just blocks away from the waterfront, Pike Place Market, and Westlake Center. Seattle Center is just a mile away. Ramps to Highway 99 and I-5 are conveniently close, too.

Modern living

Modern furniture, countertops, and hardwood floors give condos like this one a new, elevated feeling. Even though the building itself was built in 2010, you'd think it was brand new.


What more could you ask for with a gym, pool, theater room, and roof deck all in the same place? When you buy a home, you may have to add or drive to these kinds of amenities, but condo living is about having everything available to you already.

Entertainment spot

Your place will be the place everyone wants to go to. Whether it's watching a big game, throwing a themed party, hosting a holiday potluck, or gathering with friends and family, these kinds of living spaces will have people giddily accepting any invitation you send.

The allure of vertical living is as limitless as the sky, and your options in Seattle are as numerous as the clouds.
