Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. Yesterday we talked about how rents are rising in Tacoma so if you want to make the move you better do it ASAP. If you're considering it, we decided to take a look at what $1,100/month can get you right now in The City of Destiny. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's begin at Orion at 29 St Helens Avenue where you can get a 650-square-foot two-bedroom for $1,050/month. Formerly known as Commencement Terrace, you certainly don't get more space here but you do get a spot close to the downtown corridor. The units have been recently-renovated and looks like it might come with a decent view. No pets, though.
↑ Next up we take a look at some "vintage" living with the one-bedroom unit available at 706 N 4th Street for $1,095/month. This place goes back a bit and while it doesn't have the modern amenities of some places it comes packed with charm. A brick fireplace, dark hardwoods and a clawfoot tub give the place some personality, even if it looks like it has seen better days.
↑ Who doesn't want to live in a place called Tiger Mountain? Everyone wants to live in a place called Tiger Mountain. You get your chance if you take this 590-square-foot studio for $1,050/month. This place is geared towards modern apartment living and the building has tons of amenities, including swimming pool, private theater, fitness center, and a private dog park. Units look very home-y inside and if you don't mind the location (South Tacoma) it could fit the financial bill.
↑ Finally we end up at Villaggio Apartments where a 664-square-foot one-bedroom will run you $1,100/month. Apartments here look like the basic setup we've come to expect. Stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, washer/dryer in the unit, and decent-sized decks & patios out back.
