Washington Square West (studio, 1 bath)—At $995 and 350 square feet, this studio in the Arts condominium building in Center City is the priciest and one of the smallest rentals on this week’s list. The good news is that the unit was just updated, and it sits on the 12th floor, high above the noisy streets below. There’s also a fitness center and laundry on-site.
