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're seeing what $1,700/month can get you, specifically in North Seattle. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's begin in Ballard where you can find a 678 sq. ft. 1-BR in Urbana for $1,680/month. The LEED Gold Certified complex promotes healthy living and sustainable practices and apartments feature stainless steel appliances, front load washer/dryer, wood-style flooring and 9-ft. ceilings. You're also right smack dab in the middle of Ballard's "downtown" area.
↑ Next door in Fremont (or maybe it's Wallingford?) you're looking at a 548 sq. ft. studio at The Noble for $1,697/month. That better be a helluva studio for that price. The location gives you easy access to both neighborhood hubs and the building itself looks pretty stylish and slick. If you don't need much space but still want to feel like you're living upscale, it might be worth it.
↑ Next up we head to Greenwood where we're also considering a studio, this one 576 sq. ft. For $1,686/month, your Leilani on Greenwood unit is actually set up for Live/Work. The building comes with a slew of modern amenities and is another option if upscale living trumps space.
↑ Let's get some space up in Maple Leaf where this 1,100 sq. ft., furnished 2-BR in The Highlands is asking $1,700/month. Lots of room to live in and includes bonuses like a wood-burning fireplace and private balcony as well. For short-term renters only, however, as the lease is only through July.
↑ Finally we go up to Haller Lake where a 920 sq. ft. 2-BR is available for $1,695/month. The master bedroom is spacious and includes a walk-in closet and large bathroom. Recently updated with solid quartz counter tops and bamboo floors. Also comes with a one-car garage for a nice commuter bonus.
