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 $1,800 a month.
Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—This sunny and trendy loft is over in Fishtown, clocking in at 968 square feet. Expect lots of exposed brick and ductwork, hardwood floors, and extra storage in the basement of the building. Rent also includes not one, but two parking spots in the community lot next door. Pets are welcome with owner approval.
Manayunk (2 beds, 2.5 baths)—This price point goes a long way in the Philly neighborhood of Manayunk, where this 1,423-square-foot penthouse at the Water Mill at Manayunk is up for grabs. The roomy, bi-level apartment has a private balcony and a covered parking spot. The building is located right along the Schuylkill, too.
Rittenhouse (1 bed, 1 bath)—If you’re looking to live in the heart of the city, you’ll have to sacrifice some space: This 724-square-foot condo in the Academy House is the smallest apartment on this week’s list. Still, there’s plenty of built-in storage (like two closets in the bedroom), and the 17th-floor views from the private balcony look over the Kimmel Center.
Washington Square West (2 beds, 1 bath)—Here’s a rental that packs in a lot of character and charm into a Trinity on the idyllic Iseminger Street. The listing promises that the home is expanded, and that the stairs are easier to maneuver than the traditional Trinity stairs. The kitchen has also been updated, and there’s a small back patio when you need extra breathing room.
Powelton (1 bed, 1.5 baths)—Here’s your chance to live like royalty: This apartment is located in what’s known as “The Castle” in Powelton Village. It’s bi-level with a spiral staircase, and there’s a large eat-in kitchen, in-unit laundry, and parking on the premises. Sorry, but no pets.
