Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Vancouver neighborhoods. Today's price: $1,800
? We start our search off in southeast False Creek at the newly built Foundry building. The suite is brand new, never lived in and is 717 square feet. It has 1BR/1BA high end appliances, wide plank laminate wood flooring, and in suite laundry. Possible downside: SE False Creek is undergoing a lot of changes these days with a handful of construction projects happening. Depending on which way the suite faces, noise might be an issue.
? Over in Kitsilano, specifically Arbutus Walk area, $1,800 rents a 1BR/1BA fully furnished suite complete with a garden patio and fireplace. The bedroom looks micro but the location is one of the best in the city with quiet walking paths and dog-friendly parks close by.
? Onwards to Yaletown we go where we found this 2BR/1BA suite located in the Pinnacle building. The ad doesn't list the square footage but the suite appears to be an average size. It comes with in suite laundry, large breakfast bar and a bonus solarium that has floor to ceiling windows for all that natural light. The building has some notable amenities including a indoor pool, fitness centre, and lounge.
? In Gastown, $1,800 gets this open concept 1BR/1BA suite located in The Garage building. The suite faces Water Street and has large windows to let the light in. Rare to most apartment buildings, the suite also has an air conditioning unit for those hot summer days.
