What $2,700 rents in Philly right now

From Logan Square to NoLibs

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, we’re checking out homes at or around $2,700 per month. You can get row homes, swanky apartments and more all over the city, Center City especially.

Via Craigslist

Logan Square (2 bed, 1 bath)—Just feet from the center of the city, this Logan Square spot at 2301 Cherry Street is a two-bed place with 1,300 square feet of space, a private patio and a bunch of interesting design elements, like that kitchen with tile walls and a dining room with floor-to-wall-to-ceiling windows. Plus, there’s parking.

Via Craigslist

Rittenhouse Square (3 bed, 2 bath)—It’s a little inconceivable to think you can rent a three-bed townhome in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood for less than $3,000, but apparently it’s possible. Sure, this spot at 513 South 15th Street sits on the edge of the neighborhood, but still, it offers three stories, exposed beams and decorative fireplaces. There’s even laundry and you can bring your pets.

Via Craigslist

Francisville (3 bed, 2 bath)—This place at 836 North 16th Street is all new construction, and you can tell from the interior alone. It’s all white with stainless steel appliances, a white marble bathroom, and plenty of sun. Also, the two-story spot has a roofdeck with some killer downtown views.

The Philly Apartment Company, via Craigslist

Bella Vista (2 bed, 2 bath)—At 1,650 square feet and two stories, this apartment at 700 South 10th Street has a ton of room. There’s a new central air and heating system, indoor parking, and Center City views, plus a little loft space. There’s a drawback for pet owners: No cats or dogs allowed.

Via Craigslist

Northern Liberties (3 bed, 3 bath)—The final spot on this list at 916 North Front Street is also likely its largest. The 2,600-square-foot home has three bedrooms, hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, a roof deck, a sleek granite countertop kitchen, and plenty of light. Plus, bring your furry friends along.
