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 $1,500/month can get you around town. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Up first we head to Queen Anne where you can find a 436-square-foot studio at The Queen Anne Apartment Collection. Right in the heart of QA, you're close to a lot. It's unclear which of the complexes the unit is located in but regardless it looks bright and modern. You even get a "bedroom" to yourself despite the snug space.
↑ Next up we go to South Lake Union where Alley24 has a 410-square-foot studio available. It's walking distance to both Amazon and REI, depending on your work or shopping habits. Certainly a smaller space but if the photos are telling the truth it sure looks like there's a separate space for sleeping. You might end up with a nice view to boot. Not a bad spot for a tech worker looking for a place to live close to everything SLU has to offer.
↑ Now we're off to Belltown where 206 Bell has a 592-square-foot 1-BR. It's a little hard to tell what the layout of the place is as the photos seem to be both studios and 1-BRs. Either way we like the floor-to-ceiling windows and contemporary kitchens. Close to downtown, Denny Triangle and Queen Anne, it's an ideal spot if you're looking for Belltown living.
↑ Next up, it's Bridges @11th where you can find a 596-square-foot studio in University District. They've got a six-week rent-free special running but regardless it looks like a pretty nice place to live. Lots of building amenities and a vibrant living inside and out. There's even a "community demonstration kitchen" downstairs. La-di-da.
↑ Finally let's go to Sunset Hill where you'll find a 600-square-foot 1-BR at Cadence. Close to the Ballard Locks, it's a chance to live in a nice apartment without worrying being on the 12 floor if that's not your thing. It's also a little removed from the main drag so it's quieter. Units were recently-renovated and take advantage of their size by maximizing space.
