724 Market St. #401, Philadelphia

The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Philadelphia runs in the neighborhood of $1,550 a month. While we’ve seen what luxury apartments (for $2,000+) look like, we were curious about what kinds of amenities a $1,550 apartment would include. These three one-bedroom homes — in Center City, Bella Vista and Fishtown — are on the market for the city’s median rate.
