Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we compare housing and apartment options around the city using a specific price point. This week, we’re checking out what you can rent for $1,500. From studio apartments to two bedroom homes, the options are plentiful!
Fairmount (1 bed, 1 bath)—For $1,475, this apartment puts you in a prime location—a short walking distance from the art museum and center city, with views over the neighborhood of Fairmount. Along with hardwood floors and plenty of light, the apartment building (aptly named The Parkway House) also offers easy access to a roof patio and fitness center.
Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Two key descriptors for this one-bed Fishtown apartment would be “unique” and “bright.” Once a factory building, this industrial-looking home offers high ceilings, exposed brick and a wall lined with windows, all for $1,500.
Queen Village (1 bed, 1 bath)—This newly constructed apartment with 493 square feet of space in Queen Village is available for $1,495. The apartment, located on the bustling South Street has floor-to-ceiling windows, marble tile in the bathroom and a washer and dryer in unit.
Rittenhouse Square (studio, 1 bath)—At 541 square feet and with no bedroom, this studio apartment is one of the smaller homes on this week’s list—but there could be a good reason for its $1,484 price tag. The studio sits a mere three block from the popular Rittenhouse Square Park and features granite countertops and a rooftop lounge in the building.
South Philly (3 bed, 1 bath)—$1,525 can get you this three-bedroom, one bath home, just a few blocks off South Broad Street. Recent renovations have left the home with sleek hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. A first floor fireplace adds to the home’s coziness.
