Austin rent comparison: What you get for $950/month

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $950.

Promesa, 9415 McNeil Drive, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 673 square feet, $948/month. This Far North apartment is in a 2012 complex with pool, fitness center, and gated entry. Pets are allowed.

2500 Burleson Road, Apt. 517, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, 535 square feet, $950/month. A condo in the East Riverside/Oltorf neighborhood, this is a two-story, loft-style space. It has natural stone kitchen countertops, custom tile backsplash, kitchen cabinets, and hardware in the kitchen and natural stone and wood laminate flooring throughout. Plus that spiral staircase.

The Corner, 2504 San Gabriel Street, a (one) bedroom in a two- to five-bedroom apartment, 765-1,727 square feet, $925-$1,325/month. It appears that some of these West Campus apartments also have spiral staircases and, kind of unbelievably, charge as much per room as whole apartments in other parts of the city rent for. We’re intrigued.

Radius at the Domain, 11900 Hobby Horse Court, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, 645 square feet, $950/month. These North Burnet neighborhood apartments look like they have an old-school feel around pools and courtyards with sleek, updated interiors with light gray cabinetry, designer lighting, wood vinyl planking, and full-sized washer and dryer connections. Pet friendly and, of course, convenient to the ever-expanding Domain.

5511 Guadalupe Street, two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, 700 square feet, $948/month. If you’re looking for a freestanding-feeling, house-type environment in a highly walkable neighborhood, this North Loop condo might fit the bill. The listing says the space will be updated before move-in. Pets are allowed.
