From a Society Hill 1-bedroom to a cozy Fitler Square home

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: $1,700/month.

Fitler Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—It’s a cozy 576 square feet, but this Fitler Square apartment puts you a stone’s throw away from the Schuylkill River Trail and makes good use of the space that it has. Plus, there’s a back patio.

Northern Liberties (2 beds, 2 baths)—Located in the Erbe, a part of the rebranded Schimdt’s Commons, this no-frills bi-level unit has a bedroom on the first floor and the rest of the rooms on the second. There’s also an extra den and laundry in the pet-friendly apartment.

Center City (1 bed, 1 bath)—The new-ish 1900 Arch apartments have access to a roof deck and huge gym, and this particular unit gets lots of light. There’s also in-unit laundry, and it’s a pet-friendly building that’s walkable to everything in Center City.

Kensington (2 beds, 2 baths)—For $1,745 a month, you can live in this spacious apartment located in a new build right on Front Street. Perks include two bedrooms on opposite sides of the apartment, a video intercom system, and shared roof access that has views of the iconic Milk Bottle.

Society Hill (1 bed, 1 bath)—This 699-square-foot unit is in IM Pei’s Society Hill Towers, which means you can count on lots of light streaming through the apartment’s floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a large built-in cabinet storage system in the living area, and access to the pool and gym.
