Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Seattle neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out!
SLOG recently posted a photo of a tongue-in-cheek rental listing for a 10 sq. ft. doorway available for $1,850/mo. It got us thinking...what CAN you rent in Capitol Hill for $1,850/month? And are the options that much better than this micro-iest of microhousing units?
↑ We begin at The Pearl, located at 1530 15th Ave. Unit 217 is available for $1,845.mo. and includes 1/BR, 1-bath and 723 sq. ft. of living space. Tough to tell if the unit in the photos is the unit listed but it looks like you do get lots of light coming through large windows as well as some clean, updated appliance and fixtures.
↑ Things are a little vague when it comes to Unit C3 at Sunset Electric, but it is listed for $1,845/mo.. "Sunset Electric is an urban oasis where hip meets history and green gets eclectic." Oh brother. It's listed as a 1-BR/1-bath but you have to enquire about the square-footage, never the best of signs. Still, the mixture of vintage and modern features is intriguing enough to do said enquiring.
↑ Next we head to 1600 E John where Unit 112 inside Anhalt is available for $1,850/mo. Each apartment features a modern, open design with plenty of natural light, designer kitchens, and "charmed views of Anhalt's architectural masterpiece." A little full of themselves, no?
↑ Finally we check out Unit 521 in Lawrence Lofts at 1818 E Madison St., available for $1,850/mo. "The creators of Lawrence Lofts welcome you to all the creative possibilities of loft living in a sophisticated apartment community. Offering a stunning array of modern features, European-inspired cabinetry, designer fixtures and countless extras rarely found in apartment living."
