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 decided to find out what $1,700/month can get you around town with the added caveat that you need a place that is pet-friendly. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's begin in Fremont where Velo has a 528 square-foot 1-BR available for $1,706/month. Velo positions itself as the place to live for cyclists but they're also pretty pet-friendly, allowing for cats and dogs of all sizes. It's also located in a great area for pets and plenty of spots nearby for dog walks. The unit itself looks pretty nice and extremely bright.
↑ Next up is a 595 square-foot 1-BR at The Hawthorne in Capitol Hill for $1,699/month. We have some concerns about that carpet for pets but that's why God made deposits. Plus, it's low pile carpeting, which reduces dust and allergens (good for pets). Everyone's all about new apartments in Capitol Hill but sometimes a place like this makes more sense. You get more space, it has all the essentials and you're not paying for a rock wall in the lobby.
↑ Now it's off to South Lake Union where Annaliese is offering a 665 square-foot 1-BR for $1,704/month. They're so upfront about their pet-friendliness it's right there in the photo. They do have restrictions on some larger breeds but smaller dogs and cats are welcome. They'll get to enjoy a unit with big windows, lots of light and all the expected amenities.
↑ Next up is The Blake Apartments in Fairmount Park where you can get a 464 square-foot studio for $1,699/month. The unit is snug but the hardwoods are good for pets. Plus, they've made your life easy with onsite dog walk spots (with poop bags!) and a pet wash. That'll save you time and money (poop bags add up, you guys).
↑ Finally we end up in Belltown at the The Alexandria where you can get a 590 square-foot 1-BR for $1,695/month. The unit comes with vaulted ceilings, updated tile bath and updated Stainless steel appliances, amongst other things. You're tight across the street from Olympic Sculpture Park, which is basically one giant dog walk space when you think about it.
