Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour the region's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week we're looking at places for high rollers who can pay $3,000/month. (Insert joke about how those are the cheapest rentals in the region here). You tell us which place you'd choose.
↑ Let's begin in Ballard where AMLI Mark24 has a 1,044 sf. 2-BR available for $2,878/month. The brand-new building meets LEED standards and features a 3,500-square-foot sky deck and a ton more amenities. Unit looks decently-sized and you're in the middle of everything you want out of living in Ballard.
↑ Now let's cross Lake Washington and head to Downtown Bellevue where Alley 111 has an 857 sf. 1-BR on the top floor for $$2,900/month. The unit includes hardwood plank floors, quartz countertops, nest thermostats and big windows to take advantage of the views. The building has all the assumed amenities, including a fitness center, bike storage and pet run.
↑ Now we head back to Seattle where REO Flats in Capitol Hill has a 2-BR unit available for $2,950/month. REO boasts "salvaged brick, chic modern decor, and building features greener than the rooftop garden." The unit photos are all super-bright thanks to wall-to-ceiling windows that look out on the skyline.
↑ Now we're going across the bridge to Mercer Island where Islandcrest has a 2-BR apartment available for $2,795/month. This place is in the East Building, which features a " warm classic design." Lots of building amenities as you'd hope and you're in prime commuting position if you're headed to Seattle or Bellevue.
↑ Finally we end up in Seattle's Roosevelt neighborhood where you can get a 3-BR apartment at Centric Seattle for $2,795/month. The unit features hardwoods, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and pendant lighting. There's also a large parking garage attached, which is handy if you're hopping on I-5 which is right around the corner.
