FIFTY SHADES -- If you haven't already seen Fifty Shades fans flocking to Escala, the site of Christian Grey's penthouse, or the Fairmont Olympic, where he and Anastasia Steele spend an evening together in the Cascade Suite, just give it time. And if you're one of those looking to explore Seattle through the eyes and experiences of Mr. & Mrs. Grey, Curbed has mapped out all of the local locations mentioned in the books (and we assume the movie).
KITNA WIRE -- Former Seattle Seahawks QB Jon Kitna is moving to Texas for a new coaching gig and that means his 6-BR Lakewood home can now be yours for $3.5M. The 2010 waterfront home is huge (8,279 sq. ft.) and is built to be filled. The kitchen bar can seat up to ten people and the living room can probably seat more. Curbed has pics and more details.
YOUNG FOLKS -- According to one urban planner, Seattle is in the midst of a "youthification." The Generationed City project takes those born between 1980 and 2000 and figures out exactly where they're choosing to live. Turns out young Seattleites are clustering in high density areas and all around Lake Union. Check out the full interactive map right here.
