BILLIONS! It’s all going to the dogs

K&W not only designs with people in mind, they design with Fido in mind. The newest trend for multifamily developments is the addition of dog parks. Giving residents an oasis for their four-legged friends provides yet another selling point for luxury and urban apartment homes. Dog parks have become a necessary amenity for high-end residential leasing.

Some developers will go to extremes to make sure their resident pooches have a nice and tidy place to get some fresh air. Recent examples of cutting edge development include Gables Park Plaza II in Austin, Gables Memorial Hills, Gables Bering, Gables West Ave, 2411 Washington, Greystar Champions and Tuscany Court. The developers of these projects have asked Kudela & Weinheimer to design top-notch dog parks for their residents’ furry companions, some even have doggy potties, state of the art Extreme Dog Washers and extra special Green Links Turf for on-structure dog parks. It’s no wonder these multifamily developers want to keep their residents happy by providing amenities for their dogs, because according to Bloomberg Businessweek, Americans spend $41 billion a year on their pets!
