On Location

The futuristic Cop precinct was filmed at the ever popular Union Station, 800 North Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA.

The cooly lit tunnel that Deckard goes through to get to his apartment after the interrogation at the Union Station location is the Second Street Tunnel - Between Figueroa and Hill streets... The filmmakers changed the light bulbs for the movie to colored ones. [Thanks to Donald]

The Yukon Hotel was filmed at the Pan-Am Building, South Broadway (opposite the Bradbury Building used for Sebastian's apartment building)

Deckard's Apartment was filmed at the Ennis Brown House, 2607 Glendower Avenue, Silverlake, Los Angeles, CA. No scenes were actually shot inside the Ennis-Brown house. The exterior of the house and Deckard driving into the courtyard were the only shots taken on the premises. All of the interior scenes in Deckard's apartment were filmed in a set built on the Warner Bros. backlot in Burbank. Syd Mead, "visual futurist" designed the apartment based on the overall look and feel of the Ennis Brown house.

The interior of J.F Sebastian's house was also filmed on a set erected at Warner Bros. studios in Burbank. The same set was used for the interior shots of "Taffey Lewis'" bar, (or "Snake Pit" as it's originally refered to). [Thanks to Sebastian]

The opening scene with the replicant looking over the city was apparantly inspired by the steel works in Teesside, England near where Ridley Scott grew up. [Thanks to Matty Guy]
