Who Wants a Pet-friendly High-rise in Arlington?
With more and more Americans delaying marriage and children, pet ownership is at an all-time high. In fact, 68% of all U.S. households in 2013-2014 claimed at least one pet, according to the American Pet Products Association. Not surprisingly, spending on pet-related products and services hit more than $55 billion the same year. Although the greater DC area offers a plethora of dog parks and other pet-friendly environs, it's sometimes challenging to find developments in Rosslyn, Clarendon and other neighborhoods in Arlington, Virginia, that welcome Fido and other pets with open arms. And, especially so, if you and Fido want to live in a sleek high-rise with stunning views.
