This installment of Curbed Comparisons examines what $1,500—give or take $100—a month can rent in Atlanta’s various intown communities.
Not surprisingly, most of these rentals are apartments and condos, although townhomes and even single-family houses are available out there. With the exception of the Ormewood Park home featured below, though, all are small by Atlanta standards, counting less than 900 square feet and just one bedroom and bathroom. On the flip side, they’re located near some of the city’s top attractions, restaurants, and green spaces.
