Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Seattle neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: approximately $1,200/month in Capitol Hill.
The Park Manor is a 59-unit, 1953-built building in Capitol Hill and it looks like Unit 703 is available for $1,195/month. The 700 square-foot 1-BR looks fairly basic, amenities include roof deck, hardwood floors, laundry facilities and parking garage. The listing notes $75/month will cover utilities.
A little over a block from Volunteer Park, this cool-looking building at 1006 E Prospect Street has Unit D available for $1,195/month. One of six units in the building, it looks bright, updated and bigger than its square-footage (655 feet).
This 4-story brick building at 328 Bellevue Ave E includes thirty-four 1-BR apartments. One of them, Apt 205, is available for $1,195/month. The unit comes with tile countertops, mosaic tile bath flooring, new dual pane windows, some newly refinished hardwood floors. The listing claims "city views" but it looks more like "shrubbery views" to us.
Finally, we arrive at 1723 18th Ave. Not too much info available for this 1-BR unit available for $1,195/month. From the photos, we can see there's big windows to bring in lots of light and all the expected amenities in the kitchen & bathroom. Nice location, close enough to the action but tucked away on a side street for a little quiet.
