Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Vancouver neighborhoods. Today's price: $1,650/month.
? We start our search downtown with this furnished 1BR/1BA + den suite located right beside Rogers Arena & BC Place at 111 West Georgia Street. Maybe not the best location during hockey season (we all know how out of control our hockey fans can be when the Canuck lose...or win for that matter), but this suite comes complete with everything you'd need to move in tomorrow.
? Next we have this rental located in the Sterling building at 1050 Smithe Street. Complete with 1BR/1BA + den, this suite comes unfurnished and looks fairly bright and clean. Minus the easter themed pastel paint colour, it could have potential.
? In Kits, we have this 1BR/1BA suite that has ocean views and is located in the very appropriately named building Seaside Plaza at 2324 West 1st Avenue. The unit looks clean but nothing really to write home about. You're paying for location in Kits. As with most rentals in the area, there is no in suite laundry. Though rare to most, there are laundry facilities on every floor at Seaside Plaza...ahhh, doesn't the name just sound so dreamy?
