Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. This week we’re looking at options renting for $1,600 a month.
Point Breeze (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—This price point rents you an entire rowhome in the Point Breeze (what’s also referred to as Newbold by some) that was renovated just this year. That means new appliances, cabinetry, and finishes. There’s also a back patio and in-unit laundry. No word on pets.
Walnut Hill (4 beds, 2 baths)—Here’s an interesting rental on the market over in West Philly’s Walnut Hill. The loft-style apartment features tall ceilings and multiple living areas, plus parking, though you may not need it since it’s a quick walk to 52th Street Station on the El. Cats are welcome, too.
Logan Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—If space isn’t an issue, consider this one-bedroom apartment in The Arch in Logan Square. At 491 square feet, it’s by far the tiniest rental on this week’s list. But what it lacks in size it makes up for location. It’s also pet-friendly and amenity-driven, with a fitness center and clubroom.
Chinatown (2 beds, 1 bath)—Here’s a simple apartment located in the heart of Chinatown. The two-bedroom rental has two small bedrooms, a living room, and a galley kitchen. It also manages to squeeze in laundry into the 1,356-square-foot space, too. Sorry, but no pets.
North Philly (4 beds, 1 bath)—In the small North Philly neighborhood of Hantranft is this sunny rowhome available for rent. It’s a roomy 1,700 square feet with lots of bedrooms to spare—two on the second floor and two on the third. There’s also a large, fenced-in back patio.
