See your options in neighborhoods like Massachusetts Avenue Heights and Downtown

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Washington, D.C. neighborhoods. Is one man’s studio another man’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $2,200/month.

↑ First up, in Downtown, this one-bedroom apartment is on the market with 712 square feet of space. Asking $2,177 per month, it is a little under budget, and it offers amenities like a fitness center, parking, and a 24-hour front desk. According to the listing, the kitchen has been updated and pets under 25 pounds are considered.

↑ In Adams Morgan, this $2,200 per month one-bedroom is up for grabs with 510 square feet of space, making it the smallest unit on this list. Despite its small size, it still has some pluses, including an in-unit washer and dryer, a rooftop terrace, and a close location to the shops and restaurants of 18th Street NW.

↑ With three bedrooms, this Anacostia single-family home has the most to offer, but it does come with one blunder: it only has one bathroom. Spanning over 1,000 square feet, this rental comes with a washer and dryer and “luxury touches throughout,” according to the listing. The monthly price totals $2,150.

↑ For $2,185 per month, this one-bedroom in Foggy Bottom comes with 646 square feet and shared laundry. There aren’t too many details available in the listing description, but the residential development’s website states that amenities include a fitness center, rooftop deck, and a nearby Whole Foods Market and Starbucks.

↑ Finally, in Massachusetts Avenue Heights, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is on the market for $2,150 per month. This corner unit has been recently refurbished and offers a pet-friendly environment and off-street parking. The square footage totals 824.
