Seattle Rent Comparison: What $2,500/Month Gets You

New, 1 comment

From South Lake Union to Mount Baker, the offerings are quite different

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 $2,500/month can get you around town. You tell us which lease you'd sign.

We begin in South Lake Union where new apartment complex 8th & Republican has a 752 square-foot 1-BR available for $2,463/month. The unit looks stylish, modern and clean with a mixture of exposed concrete, hardwood floors and flannel carpet. Lots of building amenities for pets and cyclists and it's a nice bonus to have Fresh Flours Café & Bakery right downstairs.

Next up we go to Ray in Wallingford where you can get an 870 square-foot 2-BR for $2,543/month. Also a newer complex with modern units and amenities. The bonus in this builing is The Orangerie, featuring citrus trees that are ripe for picking all year long. Plus, Bala Yoga Studio is right downstairs to help keep you in alignment.

Now it's on to Roosevelt where Rooster Apartments has an 867 square-foot 2-BR for $2,520/month. This place has only been open a short while but it's establishing itself as a solid neighborhood living spot. Tons of building amenities and the bonus of having a Portage Bay Cafe downstairs. The units are sleek and contain all of the necessities.

Up next we head to Columbia City where CityLine offers a 1,078 square-foot 2-BR for $2,477/month. This is what we'd imagine a lot of people think of when they think of the new CC. Contemporary design living that's walking distance to all of the shops, bakeries and coffee houses the neighborhood has to offer.

Finally we head to Mount Baker where this Modern Pb Elemental designed GREEN BUILT townhome is available for $2,500/month. At 1,270 square-feet, this 2-BR is the biggest of our offerings. The open floor plan with floor to ceiling windows certainly keeps things bright. The loft-style bedroom certainly makes it stand out as well. The location puts you close not only to walkable spots but also Columbia City and Seward Park.
