↑ Check out this recently restored condo located on Perrier Street in Uptown. For $1,900/month, you get one bedroom, one bathroom and 650 square feet of living space. The kitchen comes with white shaker cabinets, granite countertops, and a hint of subway tile. Other highlights include refinished hardwood flooring, soaring ceilings, in-unit laundry, and a balcony overlooking the neighborhood. No pets are allowed as per policy. However, the condo has two off-street parking spaces.
