We’re kicking off this week’s Curbed Comparisons with a studio in a snappy Art Deco building in Koreatown. The pad comes in at 500 square feet and features fun molding, a brick wall, and hardwood floors. Per the listing, it has been freshly updated with stainless steel appliances, and butcher block counters. One possible down-side: It doesn’t come with dedicated parking. But maybe you won’t need it. Neighborhoods don’t get more walkable or transit-friendly than Koreatown. The rent? $1,375.
Here’s a crisp one-bedroom in Burbank with ample closet space, beamed ceilings, and polished hardwood floors. The apartment is located in a single-story building that holds just six units. One covered parking space is included in the $1,500 rent.
This 475-square-foot studio will put you close to bars, restaurants, and the Hyperion Trader Joe’s in Los Feliz. It sports vintage black and white tile in the kitchen and bathroom and hardwood floors. It comes with one parking space, and it allows pets (with a deposit, of course). The rent is $1,495.
If you want a place that’s more centrally located, here’s one (very tiny) option in a charming 1920s building. Located off La Brea and West Third Street, the studio is walking distance to El Coyote, LACMA, and the Grove. It comes in at just 306 square feet—that’s enough room for some closets, a kitchenette, and a compact bathroom. It’s renting for $1,300.
South of Echo Park, in north Westlake—a neighborhood with excellent views of the Downtown skyline and one of the best under-the-radar parks, Vista Hermosa—you’ll find this clean and bright studio. Fresh off the heels of a remodel, the 500-square-foot unit is renting for $1,350.
