What Kind of Studio $1,000/Month Gets You in Seattle Now

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 focus on studios that cost $1,000/month to rent. You tell us which lease you'd sign.


We begin in Capitol Hill where you can find a 121 square-foot studio at the new building at 621 12th Ave E for $975/month. Yes, you read that square footage right. We're in microhousing territory here. This is as minimalist as it gets but if all you want is a place to lay your head, it's a modern option that offers great location.


Next up we head to North Beacon Hill where this 480 square-foot studio is available in Bella Vista Apartments for $999/month. This one's downright spacious by comparison though it's older and in a doesn't come with the communal feel. You are one block from the Rizal Park viewpoint so that's a nice way to start (or end) the day.


Now we go up to 358 NW 85th St. in Greenwood where we can get a studio in the 155-290 square-foot range for $950/month. They're tiny but units come with refrigerators, microwaves, private bathrooms and room for up to queen sized bed frames. There's modern touches as well in this 4 Star Built Green building, not to mention free WiFi, which can't be understated.


Now it's off to Lower Queen Anne where you can find a 290 square-foot studio at 715 2nd Ave N for $995/month. Located in a 1909 building, this place comes with huge Victorian windows and a great Space Needle view. Also nice hardwood floors, lots of natural light, large walk-in closets and vintage fixtures.


Finally we return to Capitol Hill where there's a 300 square-foot studio at 124 11th Ave E for $950/month. This place drops you right in the middle of the neighborhood and also includes a big bathroom and big closets so you won't feel quite as stuffy as you could. Nice hardwoods throughout as well.
