    Good lords, studios have gotten expensive!

    • Leeran

      They definitely have, but I think this might be overpriced by $100 or so.

  • Leenie

    I live nearby in the Melwood…no central air or in-unit laundry, but it’s a lot cheaper, and all utilities are included.

    • Emmaleigh504

      Hey neighbor! I’m in the Melwood, too.

      • Leenie

        Hey neighbor!

  • Pleasanter

    That’s what I pay in a nearby building for a 700sf one bedroom! Albeit I don’t have a dishwasher or in-unit laundry, but still!

    Probably very noisy given the location.

    Have renovated studio with same features except it’s 50 ft bigger and no washer/dryer combo in unit. It is located off U st and is about the same price. So, at most, it’s $100 more than comparable ones.

    “Current move-in specials reduce pricing to $1785 per month after pro-ration.”
    Translation – “Rent is actually $1950/month, but we’re offering 1 month free, which pro-rates out to $1785 per month THIS YEAR. Next year, with the rent returning to normal and our regular increase, you’re paying well over $2000, or roughly $5/sq foot in an old building. Enjoy.”

      Par for the course for UIP. They also routinely use “rent concessions”, which is probably a way to skirt rent control laws. These guys are dirty as hell.

  • Anon

    This strikes me as high ($1,950 after 1 month free – most of which is probably just overlap between old/new during move) for a studio of that size in that location.
