Seattle's median rent gets you a studio apartment or a 1-BR, just depends where you're looking

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. Since we learned a couple weeks back that the median rent around Seattle is $1,790/month, we decided to find out what you can get for that. You tell us which lease you'd sign.

We begin in Green Lake where you can get a 581-square-foot 1-BR at Green Lake Village for $1,790/month. You’re just a block from the lake itself but the units looks like comfortable and casual spaces themselves. It’s modern and well-styled without bogging the space down.

Now we head to The Junction in West Seattle where you can get a 597-square-foot 1-BR at 4730 California for $1,791/month. This 88-unit, pet-friendly complex boasts tons of amenities, including a 24-hour Fit Studio and the Level 8 Lounge rooftop deck. The units themselves have an urban feel, which is a little bit different to what we usually see in these newer complexes. It's refreshing.

Next up, it's Uptown. Axis is offering a 454-square-foot studio apartment in this Queen Anne neighborhood for $1,795/month. The unit is modern and upscale and the location puts you right on the edge of everything going on in Uptown and Seattle Center. Residents get access to a lounge, business center and fitness center in the building.

Let's go back to West Seattle. Specifically, Marq West Seattle in North Delridge. They've got a 1-BR, 1.5-bath apartment available for $1,788/month. You'll be living in an LEED Gold Certified building. The main living space is open and inviting but the addition of a separate bedroom makes a huge difference in what you can fit in there.

Finally we end up at Skye at Belltown where you'll find a 504-square-foot studio available for $1,789/month. This is more of the classic downtown apartment setup and while it's smaller than most of the other options it also puts you in the heart of the city. Depends on what's most important to you.
