What $1,500/Month Rents You in Capitol Hill Right Now

New, 1 comment

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week we decided to zero in on Capitol Hill and see what's going on in the $1,500/month range. You tell us which place you'd choose.


We begin at Joule Apartments where you can get a 496-square-foot studio for $1,508/month. The unit is equipped with energy efficient appliances, a large kitchen with high-end Ceasarstone kitchen counter tops and a washer/dryer in-unit. And if you're concerned about storage, there's enough room for three closets.


We begin at Roxborough Apartments where you can get a 632-square-foot 1-BR for $1,545/month. This restored 1920's brick building includes nice touches such as picture rail molding, refinished hard wood floors, and gorgeous fixtures throughout. The wood floors in the unit stand out and you also get all the other features you'd expect.


Now it's on to Three20 Apartments where there's a 486-square-foot open 1-BR for $1,481/month. If nothing else the unit is super-bright and gives you some great views out of big windows. You get the "bedroom" as well, which is unexpected. You also get wood-style flooring, modern kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and in-home washers/dryers.


Next is AVA Capitol Hill where you can get a 446-square-foot studio for $1,482/month. Recently-opened, units include In-unit washer and dryer, fully-equipped kitchens and flexible sliding doors and walls to help give yourself a little more privacy. Or just some privacy, as it were.


We end with 1006 E Prospect Street where you can get a 655-square-foot 1-BR for $1,475/month. It's an older building so no big bells and whistles but if you want something a bit more "authentic," it might be your fit. The top-floor, corner-unit includes newer carpet, newer paint and newer appliances (whatever that may mean). There's also Hunter Douglas blinds, ample natural light and a breakfast bar.
