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: $1,500/month.
↑ Graduate Hospital (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—This unit is on the first floor of a 3-story rowhome, with carpets in the bedrooms and hardwood floors in the main living area. The kitchen is definitely tight, but there’s a dishwasher and shared laundry in the basement.
↑ Kensington (1 bed, 1 bath)—For just under $1,500 a month, you can live in this remodeled Kensington warehouse unit that’s on in the back of the building. The 700-square-foot apartment features a straight-through layout, with exposed brick, industrial-style windows, and all new appliances. Pet-friendly, too.
↑ Chinatown (2 beds, 1 bath)—This 525-square-foot unit manages to pack in two bedrooms, laundry, and 12-foot ceilings into one apartment. It’s located on the second floor, but its big windows mean you won’t be lacking any natural light. No word on pets.
↑ University City (1 bed, 1 bath)—Just on the edge of Baltimore Avenue, this one-bedroom is in a quintessential West Philly Victorian. It’s been renovated, but it still has character, like the built-in bench in the living area. There’s also a front porch and backyard.
↑ Manayunk (1 bed, 1 bath)—For $1,500, you can live in a waterfront property. This 495-unit is one of the apartments in the new Isle complex on the edge of the Schuylkill River. There’s a fitness center, but given the location the Schuylkill River Trail won’t be far either.
