Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Miami neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's penthouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $3,000.
↑ For the amenity lover or Brickell elitist—look no further. Situated on the 34th floor of the Viceroy, this Modani showroom furnished 1-bedroom has views of Downtown, the Miami River, and Biscayne Bay. The world-class amenities may justify the small space—it also doesn't hurt that the unit includes one parking space and is pet friendly. This 'minimalist' dream unit will set you back $3,000/month or $1,700/month if you could travel back to 2010.
↑ This charming 2-bedroom historic Coral Gables home will whisk you away to the Spanish countryside…just block out the blaring horns and screeching tires from the adjacent US-1. The property features a fireplace (for those frigid 60-degree nights), back and front yards, and 2 parking spaces. Asking $3,000/month.
↑ If you want oceanfront without breaking the bank (too badly, at least), head to Mid-Beach. This renovated 2-bedroom apartment boasts "***NEW A/C***" as well as endless ocean views, which are actually quite impressive. Recently increased to $3,000/month.
↑ Enjoy an expensive sounding address and panoramic views of the Miami skyline (if you squint hard enough) from this Miami Beach apartment. This 2-bedroom 2.5-bathroom condo is particularly large at 1300-sqft and has expansive floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay. You guessed it—$3,000/month.
↑ Does an affordable 3000-sqft apartment in South-of-Fifth sound too good to be true? Well, it probably is. The street-level flat, which was built in 1926, spans five bedrooms and one bathroom (really, just one). The closest Starbucks is 10 minutes away, which will be especially convenient when your century-old plumbing system takes on a life of its own. Rent is $3,000/month.
