Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. Today we see what a single renter can get around town for $1,100/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ We begin in Othello where you can get a studio for $1,080/month at The Station in Othello. They're skimpy on the sqaure-footage details but we'll ballpark it in the 500 range. Really modern look and the long apartment approach helps extend the small space. Depending on the floor you may get easy courtyard access or a back patio. Either way you have access to a cool rooftop deck.
↑ Up next we head to Green Lake where you can find a 400 square-foot studio for $1,075/month at 420 NE Maple Leaf Place. This unit is located on the second floor and what it lacks in size it makes up for in location. Two blocks from Green Lake and all of the restaurants, coffee shops, bars and retail options therein. It's tiny but if you plan on spending most of your time at work and the lake, maybe that doesn't bother you.
↑ Now we go to East Queen Anne where we'll find a 650 square-foot one-bedroom at 1300 6th Ave N asking $$1,150/month. We're gonna admit we don't know what they were quite thinking with that divider between the hallway and the kitchen but otherwise you actually get a bedroom and it's a good neighborhood to settle in to. Also looks pretty bright thanks to big windows.
↑ Next up is Solara in Cedar Park where they're offering a 499 square-foot studio for $1,140/month. It's the kind of upscale, modern apartment complex that many folks, especially commuters, might be looking for. Club Solara features a billiards/game room, 24-Hr fitness center, tanning, whirlpool spa, dry cedar sauna, and projection screen DVD theatre. They're pretty skimpy on the unit photos but what we do see looks bright, homey and well laid out.
↑ Finally we end in Capitol Hill where $1,145/month gets you a 424 square-foot studio at Towne Apartments. The bay windows are the star here. While the kitchen has a pretty vintage feel to it in a so-so way, the rest of the apartment has it in a very cool way. It's a 1906 building so that explains it.
