Question: I have severe allergies to dogs and cats to the point that I can’t even live next to somebody who has a pet. I’d love to buy a condo, but everything in Arlington seems pet-friendly. Are there any pet-free condos in Arlington?
Answer: It seems that every Arlington resident owns a dog and/or cat and that every condo or apartment building proudly markets its pet-friendliness to attract residents. However, there are a surprising number of condo buildings around the county that offer a safe-haven for those suffering from severe pet allergies. The following is a list of condominiums and cooperatives (co-op) in Arlington that restrict the ownership of dogs and cats:
River Place is one of the only co-ops in Arlington and Arlington’s largest housing community. Make sure you understand the differences between living in a condo and co-op before considering a purchase in River Place. You also need to know that River Place is on a 100-year land lease that is set to expire in 2052 and very unlikely to be renewed, so the value of most of these units decreases each year in line with the Net Present Value of the rental income for each unit.
Perched above the Iwo Jima memorial, many of the condos in Prospect House offer the best unobstructed (and well-protected) views into DC. With large balconies and spacious floor plans, you’ll make a lot of friends hosting parties for the Fourth of July fireworks.
While owning a single family home or townhouse in Arlington can be cost-prohibitive, there are a number of affordable, convenient condo/co-op options that offer those suffering from severe pet allergies an opportunity to own in Arlington. I’d be happy to discuss these options in more detail with anybody who’s interested, just give me a call at (703) 539-2529 or shoot me an email!

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.
On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.
Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.
On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
