Finding a pet-friendly apartment in Los Angeles is no easy task, which is odd given that you can bring your four-legged friend to basically any store or restaurant in the city. New construction apartments tend to be accepting of dogs and cats, albeit with some restrictions in place. Several communities even offer amenities that appeal to pets and their owners, like “bark parks” and “pet spaws.” Here we’ve rounded up four such rental communities from across Los Angeles that are now leasing.
Developer: MacFarlane Partners
Pet policy: $500 deposit, $50 monthly pet rent, two pet limit, breed restrictions
Priced from: $1,566 per month
Four-legged residents of Trademark can take in sweeping skyline views from the rooftop dog walk. The building even has a hashtag for documenting its furry friends (#TrademarkPets, if you’re interested) and sponsors a pet-of-the-month raffle for a gift card to the Healthy Spot pet store. Featuring studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, Trademark is located in an amenity-rich area of DTLA, steps from Grand Central Market, The Last Bookstore, Regent Theater and the Pershing Square Metro station.
2. The Link
Developer: Pacific Development Partners, LLC
Pet policy: Two pet limit
Priced from: $2,335 per month
If you’ve got a high-maintenance pup who refuses to go for a walk in the rain, The Link’s got you covered with a partially-enclosed dog park and pet washing station. These spacious, one- and two-bedroom apartments come with private balconies where your cat or dog can bask in the sunlight and durable, wood-look flooring that makes sweeping up pet hair a breeze. The community is minutes away from one of the city’s largest greenspaces, Griffith Park, which boasts a popular dog park of its own with shaded areas, bench seating and plenty of parking.
3. L+ O
Developer: Camden Securities Company
Neighborhood: North Hollywood Arts District
Pet policy: $500 deposit, $50 monthly pet rent, two pet limit, interview required
Priced from: $1,995 per month
Breed and weight restrictions can make it difficult for some pet owners to find an apartment that will accept their beloved pooch. L + O in the NoHo Arts District considers most dogs with a pet interview. They also have a pet poop DNA testing program to identify tenants who don’t pick up after their dogs, ensuring a clean community for all. This modern collection of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments is perched atop an Amazon Fresh grocery store, allowing you to pick up dog food or training treats in a pinch.
Developer: Frost/Chaddock Developers
Neighborhood: Larchmont Village
Pet policy: Breed restrictions, $500 deposit, $50 monthly pet rent
Priced from: $2,865 per month
Qwil knocks it out of the (dog) park with its lineup of amenities. The luxury apartment complex boasts an onsite dog run called “The Pupper Run,” equipped with turf, agility equipment and a dog water fountain. They’ve also got a pooch spa with a high-tech Evolution dog wash system that doesn’t even require you to bring your own shampoo. The Paramount Pictures-adjacent apartment complex touts one- and two-bedroom units featuring oversized glass balconies, breathtaking views, smart home technology, quartz countertops and imported Italian cabinetry.
