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 $1,300/month can get you around Seattle. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's begin in International District, where the 407 sf Unit 403 at Ticino Apartments is available for $1,305/mo. Older building but the units look renovated. Close to light rail, which is great for commuters, and close to the stadiums, which is great for sports fans. If you're both of those things, what a match.
↑ Next up, we're off to South Lake Union where you can get a 500 sf studio at Union Bay Seattle for $1,310/mo. Just blocks from REI and all of the bustling action in SLU, it's a perfect location for an Amazon employee or other local worker looking for an easy commute but not concerned with apartment amenities.
↑ Next, we head over to Madison Park where you can find a 650sf 1-BR at Edgewater Condos for an even $1,300/mo. The 1939 complex is a good example of how an older apartment doesn't have to mean dingy. You also get access to a seasonal pool and plenty of communal green space. And of course, Lake Washington beachfront.
↑ Now we go to First Hill where the Paul Revere is offering a 499 sf 2-BR for $1,300/mo. How in the world do you fit two bedrooms in 500 sf? We're not actually sure. The living room looks sizable but it's unclear exactly how you pull the double occupancy off. Regardless, for an older building, this one's got a lot of vintage charm as well.
↑ Finally we head down to The Junction in West Seattle where Oregon 42 is offering a 505 sf studio for $1,310/mo. It's the option for those who want prime location in a fun area but aren't too worried about spending a lot of time in the apartment. Plus, the draw here in the building amenities, which include a big fitness room and rooftop deck.
