Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week we look at rentals for $1,250/mo. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ We begin in Belltown where you can get a 531 sq. ft. studio in Seattle Heights on the corner of 2nd & Vine for $1,250/mo. Lots of building amenities here, including 24 hour concierge, two party decks, a full gym, an indoor pool, sauna and a business center. Unit itself looks well taken care of and modern. Seems like it's right in the range of what you'd expect in Belltown.
↑ Next we're off to Maple Leaf where you can find a 550 sq. ft. studio at Thornton Place for $1,250/mo. The commuters version of the previous studio, this one puts you within easy access to I-5 and Northgate Transit Center. Lots of shops and eateries right downstairs as well.
↑ Next up we pop down to Capitol Hill where the studio at 409 10th Ave E "won't be available long" according to the listing. Located inside an early 1900's solid brick building, this unit features hardwood floors, arched entryways, ample closet space, central radiator heating and on-site laundry. If you're not concerned with modern amenities, this might be more up your alley.
↑ Next we go to Ballard and Ballard Place Condominiums where you can get a 525 sq. ft. studio for $1,250/mo. Building amenities include concierge services, sauna, fitness center, rooftop patio, 2 large spas, conference room and business center. Unit includes tile flooring & carpet, granite countertops, stainless appliances, dishwasher, stacked full-size washer/dryer and balcony.
↑ We end the tour in Northgate where you can finally stretch your legs out in this 950 sq. ft. 2-BR basement apartment. At least we assume it's a basement apartment judging by the windows and door placement. Looks like good condition and includes own washer/dryer, dining room, living room and kitchen. Good spot for commuters and/or North Seattle Community College students.
