Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various San Francisco neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,500.
↑ The very recently revamped Trinity Place in SoMa has a shiny and new junior one-bedroom for rent at $2,479/month. The location can be a bit rough, but you are on the same block as both Muni and BART. The unit's got wood laminate flooring and granite countertops. Building amenities include a fitness center and resident lounge, and there's laundry on each floor. No pets and no mention of parking.
↑ A pretty wonky 750-square-foot two-bedroom apartment in the Central Sunset has just landed on the rental market for $2,500/month. The good news: Golden Gate Park is your front yard! The bad news: You're going to be living on Lincoln Way. There's laundry in the unit but no parking's included. Sadly, pets aren't allowed.
↑ One of those quintessential San Francisco apartments is on the rental market for $2,500/month. This 450-square-foot studio in Nob Hill has subtle art deco details and a beautiful chandelier in the main room. The kitchen's small and uninspiring, though there is a huge window that provides an abundance of natural light. Another pro is a generously sized walk-in closet complete with a wall-mounted mirror. No pets or parking, but laundry's in the building.
↑ $2,500/month gets you a recently renovated studio in Potrero Hill, and the unit even has its own private and spacious balcony that overlooks the city and water. The appliances are stainless, the floors are hardwood, and the kitchen countertops are granite. No pets, but parking and laundry are included.
↑ Just around the corner from the quaint yet adorable Allyne Park in Pacific Heights is this 525-square-foot studio asking $2,495/month. There's a huge walk-in closet and there are views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking is available but it'll cost you an additional $325/month. Sorry, no dogs, but cats are fine.
