We chose $1,650 as this week’s price point because it’s at the lower end of what you can get in the newly reopened Plaza. It’s located on Woodward, with quick access to Whole Foods, Starbucks, and the QLINE. The views are amazing. The apartments have laundry in unit, and cats and dogs are welcome. A dog park next door is in the works. Zillow lists a one-bedroom available at $1,700.
