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 Downtown where the brand new Premiere on Pine has a 495 sf 1-BR available for $1,805/mo. You know everything is going to be in good shape since it's never been used before. The location drops you right in between Pike and Pine on 9th Avenue, giving you some pretty solid placement if you're looking for a place close to the action. Not very big, considering the price, but plenty of building amenities to make up for it.
↑ Next up, Capitol Hill, where we can find a 594 sf 1-BR in Three20 for $1,810/mo. Very spartan arrangements in the unit. Almost feels like a studio (especially given the size) but again you're paying for building amenities and location as this one drops you on Pine Street within walking distance to both Capitol Hill and Downtown.
↑ We head over to U District to get a little bit more space as we find a 768 sf 2-BR inside UDistrict Square, asking $1,809/mo. These converted buildings have a ton of vintage charm so it's not for anyone who needs a state-of-the-art gym in the vicinity. Plus, considering it's a 2-BR, that price tag is a lot easier to handle.
↑ Next up, we go to Pioneer Square to check out a 591 sf 1-BR at The Wave at Stadium Place for $1,804/mo. So, your view might be a parking lot, but all parking lots considered, it's a pretty entertaining one to lord over. Plus, the building is chocked full of amenities, it's like living in an enclosed city. The trade-off is, as usual, unit size.
↑ Finally we head down to North Delridge where you can get a 631 sf 1-BR at The Vue Apartments for $1,795/mo. Not as happening a location as Downtown or Capitol Hill but maybe that's the point. Maybe you want a nice-sized apartment in a quite location that's still close to a lot of fun activities. If so, you could do much worse than here. You could also turn that den into a bonus bedroom if need be.
