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.
