Our Curbed Comparisons are back after a holiday break. Hopefully nobody was rental hunting out of necessity over New Year's Day! The folks at Zumper have found these rentals at $1650 (or less). Here's what you can find all over the city.
Kennedy Row is no stranger to Curbed coverage and the building has 4 studios available between $1435-$1555/month. If you want to expand from a 487 square foot studio to a 559 square foot one bedroom, there's also one of those available at $1695/month. It's right by the Stadium-Armory metro stadium which should be useful for anyone who likes to watch either Roller Derby bouts or D.C. United games (for the moment, anyway).
↑ This one bedroom in The Cloisters asks a fairly low $1575/month. The plus side is that it's a fairly large looking one bedroom with carpeted floors and a balcony in a pet friendly building. This will work for someone who wants a quieter city living existence as its location on the edge of Edgewood and Stronghold is a bit removed from the excitement in nearby Brookland and Bloomingdale.
↑ This studio at the fitness-friendly (and pet friendly and resident friendly) Flats at Atlas looks like a pretty good deal at $1637/month, but the brokerbabble is a little bit snort-worthy. Is anyone in a building with its own basketball court that's walking distance from Jimmy Valentine's and The Argonaut really an "urban pioneer"?
↑ This 800 square foot one bedroom at Tunlaw Gardens in Glover Park is asking $1565/month. There's a 478 square foot studio in the same building asking the same amount of rent per month, but why do that to yourself unless you actually hate the idea of extra space.
↑ Finally, there's this one bedroom on Wisconsin Avenue not far from the National Cathedral, Woodley Park or Glover Park. The building doesn't have much in the way of amenities, but the utilities are included in the $1600/month rent. For American University graduate students, this might not be a bad move, especially if you have a pet.
