Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various neighborhoods. Is one person's loft another person’s townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,800/month.
↑ Northern Liberties (1 bed, 1 bath)—Soaring ceilings and some industrial history is what this 830-square-foot unit at the Iron Works Lofts has to offer. Well, that and hardwood floors, exposed brick and beams, and an island kitchen with granite counters, plus a location that puts you close to Girard Avenue. Furry friends welcome.
↑ Manayunk (2 beds, 2 baths)—Bookworms will either love or hate the redevelopment of the old Manyunk Library for $1,795/month. Most of the historic details appear to be on the outside, since the unit features new finishes, as well as a sliding glass door with patio access. The location is about a 10 minute walk to Main Street. PETS?
↑ Newbold (2 beds, 2 baths)—For $1,794/month this brand new development may save you a little money on utilities with its LEED certification. The 2-bedroom unit is an open floor plan, plus the building courtyard collects rainwater for planters. It’s close to Broad Street and the South Philadelphia Tap Room. PETS?
↑ Walnut Hill (3 beds, 2 baths)—This newly built multi-story unit features hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and in-unit laundry. The kitchen lacks counter space, but it’s just a few blocks from an eclectic mix of businesses, like Kaffa Crossing Ethiopian cafe and Local 44. It’s also an easy commute to UPenn, Drexel and Center City.
↑ Kensington (2 beds, 1 bath)—Over in one of Philly’s many booming neighborhoods, this interesting loft-style unit clocks in at 1,095 square feet, but it may seem even bigger thanks to its 25-foot-tall ceilings. And expect lots of light with those warehouse-style windows. Large pups welcome, too.
