What $1,250/Month Can Rent You In Seattle

New, 1 comment

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're investigating apartments listed for $1,250/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.

↑ We begin in U District where a 700 sq. ft. 1-BR in Ivy Ridge Apartments is available for $1,250/mo. A good choice for the grad student who can afford it, it keeps you close to campus but puts you inside a quiet setting where you'll find students as well as professionals.

↑ Next we head to Queen Anne where a 482 sq. ft. studio is available in The Neptune for $1,255/mo. It's a tiny space but the building amenities include a billiards lounge, multi-media theatre room, pet station on roof, 24-hour fitness center and the requisite rooftop deck to take in the views. For when convenience and community trump comfort.

↑ If personal space is your concern, there's an 800 sq. ft. 2-BR available at Northbrook Place Apartments in Lake City for $1,250/mo. If you like the idea of living closer to Northgate Mall than Westlake Center, this might be your best bet in the price range.

↑ If West Seattle makes more sense, there's a 430 sq. ft. studio available in The Vue Apartments for $1,270/mo. You'd be right on the edge of the West Seattle Golf Course in case you want to be able to hit the links whenever you want.

↑ Finally we end up in Capitol Hill where a renovated 500 sq. ft. 1-BR in available inside a Victorian four-plex for $1,250/mo. Situated between Pike & Union, the building includes a laundry room, storage lockers and a bicycle rack.
