What $2,900 rents in Philly right now

From Center City to Northern Liberties

Welcome back 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 $2,900 a month, and there’s a lot of variety when it comes to space; from one-bed apartments, to full, three-story homes.

Via Craigslist

Logan Square (2 bed, 1 bath)—This glassy apartment building at 2040 Market Street offers tons of Center City views, along with amenities like a fitness center and roof deck. Inside, the two-bed apartment itself has over 1,300 square feet of space, wall-to-wall windows in the living room, and a washer and dryer in unit. Plus, you can bring your pets along.

Via Craigslist

Midtown Village (1 bed, 1 bath)—One of the smaller options on this list, is this one-bed apartment at 1213 Walnut Street—in the heart of what some have started calling “Midtown Village.” Like its Logan Square counterpart, this home has wall-to-wall windows, and it offers quartz countertops, laundry in unit, and hardwood floors.

Quad Philly, via Craigslist

Graduate Hospital (3 bed, 3 bath)—Located just a quick walk from the Broad Street line, this 1,200-square-foot bi-level sits on 16th and Christian. It has hardwood floors, tons of light, a large kitchen, laundry, and—one of the biggest draws—a roofdeck with views of the Philly skyline.

via Craigslist

Queen Village (3 bed, 3.5 bath)—This 501 Montrose place might be the largest on this list, with three floors, a finished basement, and parking (always a big bonus in Philly). Each room has tons of sunlight, and the second-floor living space is pretty sizable, with high ceilings an lots of windows.

OCF Realt, via Craigslist

Northern Liberties (3 bed, 2.5 bath)—This three-story rowhome has lots of space and light. Sitting at the corner of North Lawrence and Poplar Streets, it’s a 15 minute walk from the Girard Station MFL stop, and it’s close to plenty of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. Plus, the interior of the home is newly rehabbed, offering hardwood floors, granite countertops, a back patio, and a roof deck.
