Instead of the What X Rents You feature, UrbanTurf is rounding up a variety of options in the DC area to see what a renter can expect to pay for a one-bedroom apartment.
One-Bedroom One Block from Waterfront Metro
This one-bedroom condo in Southwest is a short walk from the Waterfront Metro station. The unit enters beside the kitchen nook, which has a breakfast bar overlooking the open main living/dining area and its oversized windows. A glass door in the corner of the room leads to a private balcony. While the apartment doesn’t come with a parking space, it does have an in-unit washer/dryer and the apartment allows up to two cats.
Amenities Worth the Cost of Admission
This one-bedroom is at the newer City Market at O development and boasts an open floorplan and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the community courtyard. Finishes range from Corian countertops in the kitchen to a soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower in the bathroom to a customizable closet system in the bedroom. However, the over-$3,000 rent is less about the 750 square-foot apartment and more about the building’s extensive amenity package, which includes a bi-level roof deck with infinity pool, waterfall, fire pits, music studio and outdoor bar.
Less Square Footage and More Closets in District Heights
A mile-and-a-half from the Addison Road Metro in Maryland, this one-bedroom apartment is on the smaller side, but is the least expensive of the options featured today. It also has the most closet space by far, including a walk-in closet in the bedroom. The open living/dining area has a wall of windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to a balcony running the length of the wall. The community is dotted with manicured lawns and also has a swimming pool.
