Welcome back 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: $3,900.
↑After an 8-year hiatus marred by a global financial crisis, foreclosure, and change in ownership, the highly anticipated lofts at the Filling Station have finally hit the market. This 1-bedroom 1-bathroom bi-level loft has soaring 18' ceilings, top of the line appliances, and panoramic downtown views. The unit also comes with 1 parking spot, and the building allows pets (even over 20 pounds). A true steal for $3,950/month—just make sure you don't wander into adjacent Overtown or you might become the victim, not the thief.
↑Unfortunately, $3950/month won't get you much on Fisher Island, other than a fancy address. This studio, which appears to be windowless, has finishes comparable to an Airport Holiday Inn. The location is ideal and the facilities are world-class, but it may not be worth sacrificing your living space.
↑This 2-bedroom, located on 25th and Collins, was recently remodeled and converted into an oversized 1-bedroom (a terrific way to lower property value!). The owner also installed a new kitchen, which boasts an oversized faucet reminiscent of Ridley Scott's film, Alien. The unit has striking views of the intercostal and is just one block from the ocean. Recently reduced to $3900/month.
↑If size is a concern, consider this 4-bedroom 3-bathroom in Pinecrest, which spans nearly 2500 square feet. You'd never guess that the home was built in 1955, given its updated kitchen and modern backyard pool. Rent is $3850/month.
↑This 4-bedroom 4-bathroom North Bay Village townhome offers the space of a house and the convenience of a condo. The unit, which was constructed last year, features a private rooftop, two covered parking spaces, and an oversized Jacuzzi in the master bathroom. The waterfront location and panoramic views will set you back $3900/month.
