New, 1 comment

$2,500/month doesn't quite mean what it used to in Seattle

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 take a look at $2,500/month and find out what, if anything, you can get for that around town. You tell us which lease you'd sign.

We begin in Queen Anne's Uptown where Astro Apartments has a 718 square-foot 1-BR available at $2,491/month. The unit includes a private patio, upgraded appliances, and full-sized washer and dryer. The building itself is loaded with amenities, including a fitness center, clubhouse, and rooftop dog park. You're also right across the way from KeyArena, perfect for Seattle Storm season ticket holders.

Next we head to Zephyr Apartments in Capitol Hill where you can find a 698 square-foot 1-BR for $2,495/month. The modern unit offers floor-to-ceiling windows, stainless appliances, and great views. Living here also comes with a fitness room and a rooftop deck with BBQ. The Olive Way location is just two blocks from Broadway and gives you easy access to a lot of different options.

Now we go to Belltown where Avenue One Condos has an 893 square-foot 2-BR available for $2,494/month. You get a nice Space Needle view from the living room. The unit itself is spacious and has a modern feel. The real appeal here in the location, putting you within walking distance of Olympic Sculpture Park, Pike Place Market and so many other things.

We go north of Lake Union where Prescott Wallingford Apartments has an 827 square-foot 2-BR available. The location gives you quick access to Highway 99 and is easily walking to 45th Street or Gas Works Park.

Finally we go to Green Lake Village where you can get a 723 sqaure-foot 1-BR for $2,520/month. The unit has a modern design and some cool color combos that are hopefully still there when you move in. If you wanted to live hear Green Lake itself, you're a couple blocks away. Plus you're right above a PCC, coffee shop, and more.
