On the east end of Belltown, this studio is bigger than the Eastlake one-bedroom, at 490 square feet, it’s just more open. It includes a large kitchen with a breakfast bar, a decent amount of closet space, and even an in-unit washer and dryer. Cats are allowed, and residents share a patio balcony. Garage parking is extra for a steep extra fee, but Belltown is a transit hub walkable to downtown. Rent is $1,250 a month.

For more space, head north to this 700-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment with a deck renting for $1,275 per month, including off-street parking. It even has a little yard area. Other than the size and outdoor space it’s pretty no-frills, and has a pretty itty-bitty kitchen, although there’s plenty of room to add some kind of extra counter space. The catch: No pets.
Just a couple of blocks from the Morgan Junction, this one-bedroom apartment includes off-street parking, in-unit laundry, and basic utilities for $1,350 a month. It’s along a bus rapid transit line and walkable to errands, too. There’s a decent amount of cabinet and closet space, large windows, and an eat-in kitchen. Cats are allowed.
