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!
This week we're following up on last month's news that average rent in Ballard is up to $1,628 by finding out what you can get for that kind of money.
↑ Let's begin at Urbana Apartments (1501 NW 56th St) where 570 sq. ft. Studio H is available at $1,610/mo. Located just around the corner from the Market St. epicenter, the unit features stainless steel Energy Star appliances, in-home front load washer/dryer, wood-style flooring and 9-ft. ceilings. There's also a fitness center and bike tune-up area for residents on the go.
↑ When the AMLI Mark24 (2428 NW Market St.) is ready, you'll find a 651 sq. ft. 1-BR available for an even $1,600/mo. These luxury Seattle apartments boast exceptional amenities, are pet-friendly with an off-leash area and pet spa, fitness zone with yoga studio and the 3,500 sq. ft. sky deck featuring a sunroom with kitchen & fireplace and outdoor entertainment facilities. Expected to open in mid-2015, so, consider this a lookahead option.
↑ Metropole Condos at 5615 24th Ave NW has a 731 sq. ft. 1-BR available for $1,600/mo. The 1-BR+ includes a private wraparound deck, cherry hardwood floors, two-sided gas fireplace, stainless appliances and gas cooktop.
↑ Finally, we end up at NoMa (5650 24th Ave NW) where Unit 318 is available for $1,650/mo. The 550 sq. ft. unit faces in towards the courtyard but you're a short walk from Market St. and everything going on in Ballard.
