Multi-family Adaptive Reuse Project Accommodates Unique Lifestyle Needs of Urban Pet Owners
BLOOMFIELD, N.J., April 7, 2015 – Pet ownership has been steadily rising across the United States, a trend not lost on luxury apartment developers who recognize the importance of providing innovative spaces for animal lovers and their four-legged companions. At Parkway Lofts – a multi-family adaptive reuse project in Bloomfield, N.J. – the community’s newest on-site amenity caters to the unique lifestyle requirements of today’s urban pet owners.
Parkway Lofts’ new private dog run allows canines to get their daily exercise while pet owners mingle and make friends with fellow residents. The fenced-in dog run contains a gravel surface, ample lighting, and safety doors to ensure dogs won’t run astray.
“Dogs and cats are valued companions and cherished members of many families,” said Will Rodriguez, community manager. “We recognized the importance of this bond when developing Parkway Lofts and didn’t want tenants to choose between moving here and leaving a pet behind. We’ve made it possible for all renters, including pet owners, to enjoy Parkway Lofts’ all-encompassing luxury lifestyle.”
The dog run is just the beginning of Parkway Lofts’ dynamic set of hotel-caliber amenities. Residents enjoy 24/7 concierge service; a 5,000-square-foot, two-level state-of-the-art fitness center; a 20-seat large-screen theater room; a private party and billiards room with a 14-foot bar, televisions and tufted banquettes; and a 24-hour resident-only convenience store.
The industrial-inspired community also provides its residents with a secure on-site parking garage, and additional underground and surface parking. Parkway Lofts’ covered parking options proved particularly valuable to tenants during periods of inclement winter weather.
