Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. Is someone’s townhouse another’s studio? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: $1,750 a month.
Fairmount (2 beds, 1 bath)—Just on the edge of Fairmount is this 826-square-foot home for rent. It’s a rarity in that it has two outdoor spaces, including a front patio and a deep back patio that offers a bit more privacy. The home has been updated throughout, and the master bedroom features a wall of built-in storage.
Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—This recently renovated apartment in a Fishtown rowhome is looking for its first tenant. Located on the first and basement level of a walkup, the unit has tons of character, from exposed brick to the large mural on the side of the building. Pets are welcome, and laundry is shared.
Spruce Hill (3 beds, 2 baths)—A new apartment building on S. 44th Street in Spruce Hill is asking $1,750 a month for a 917-square-foot unit. That rents a pet-friendly apartment with in-unit laundry, carpeted floors, and access to a bike storage room.
Society Hill (1 bed, 1 bath)—A condo rental is up for grabs in one of the IM Pei-designed Society Hill Towers. This particular unit was recently renovated and is located in the north tower, offering sweeping views from the iconic floor-to-ceiling windows. For an extra fee, residents have access to a pool and parking.
Rittenhouse (1 bed, 1 bath)—At 739 square feet, this rental calls itself one of the largest units in the building. A long hallway leads down to the sunny living room and corner kitchen, where there are views of Center City. Its location at 19th and Chestnut puts you within walking distance to Suburban Station.
