Philly Rent: What $1,600 rents in Philly right now

From an industrial abode in Northern Liberties to an Old City loft

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: $1,600/month.

Northern Liberties (1 bed, 1 bath)—For $1,575 a month, you can live in this newly renovated apartment in the Trans-Atlantic Building. This unit is 511 square feet and features hardwood floors, new kitchen appliances, and lots of industrial details if that’s your style. A pet will cost you a $500 deposit.

North Broad (1 bed, 1.5 bath)—Yes, the Divine Lorraine is still very much under construction, but the apartments should be move-in ready by January 1. This 1-bedroom unit goes for $1,565 a month. While amenities will be sparse for now, eventually there will be a fitness center and multiple restaurants. Only cats allowed.

East Falls (2 beds, 1 bath)—$1,550 rents you an entire rowhome in East Falls, with French doors that open to a spacious back patio. It’s a quick walk to the SEPTA station if commuting to Center City is a must, and an even easier walk/bike/run to Kelly Drive. Pets welcome.

Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Eco-friendly folks will appreciate living in this green-friendly condo. It’s part of the sustainable Ice House project, and there’s access to a private patio. Not big enough? There’s a community roofdeck, too.

Old City (Studio, 1 bath)—To live in the heart of Old City, it’ll cost you $1,655 a month. This 987-square-foot loft/studio is in the Bank Street Court building, which puts you just blocks from the future Museum of the American Revolution and other historic haunts.
