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 learned that $1,830 is the median rent for a one-bedroom in Seattle right now. So, we figured we’d take a look around and see what that gets you. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
We begin in Uptown where H20 Apartments is offering a 540 square-foot 1-BR unit for $1,825/month. Built LEED Gold, this place includes amenities like Energy Star appliances, hard-surface floors, and bike storage. The unit is bright and includes private patio space as well. Location-wise, you’re close to KeyArena and lots of Queen Anne retail and restaurants.
Next we head to Green Lake Village where you can get a 738 square-foot 1-BR for $1,815/month. The unit looks sleek and modern and with that many windows you’re bound to get plenty of light. You’re also just blocks from Green Lake and all the shops/restaurants right there. PCC is right downstairs.
On to Loyal Heights where Belay Apartments has a 655 square-foot 1-BR for $1,840/month. Right across from Ballard High School, so a good spot if that’s a consideration. Straight-forward unit but the kitchen space is big and plenty of building amenities included.
Down to Downtown where Post Alley Court has a 546 square-foot 1-BR available for $1,813/month. The layout is a bit different than the usual, creating more “rooms” throughout. Style and design seem to have been considered here. If you’re looking for a place in the middle of Seattle’s iconic offerings, this would be it.
Finally we head to North Delridge where Westside Flats has an 885 square-foot 1-BR available for $1,815/month. Located at the north edge of the West Seattle Golf Course, this place comes with plenty of amenities, including pet areas and community amenity spaces. The unit looks like your standard 1-BR but plenty of opportunity to put your touches on it.
