Today Is National Pet Day! Here Are Miami’s Top Pet-Friendly Condo Buildings

All hail our furry friends! Today is National Pet Day, which is a perfect opportunity to raise one of the more delicate issues with moving your family into one of Miami’s famous condo buildings. Depending upon the type of pet you have in your family, they may or may not be accepted by the condo board in the building of your choosing.

Most of the buildings are at least somewhat pet-friendly, particularly if you are purchasing and/or have small pets. If you are renting and/or have large dogs, there are some buildings that will cater to your fur baby, and some who will be less than accepting.

In honor of National Pet Day, we wanted to highlight our favorite developments who really roll out the carpet to the four-legged family members.

Grove at Grand Bay

Beginning in or own realm of Coconut Grove, The Grove at Grand Bay was built in 2016 and is located at 2669 Bayshore Drive.

It boasts large floor plans in twin twisting glass towers designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels. The human family members will make particular note of the 12-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling glass as well as 12-foot deep terraces with glass enclosures, showcasing the views of Regatta Park and the Biscayne Bay.

For Fido, all sizes of dogs are welcomed at Grove at Grand Bay and the building is just a stone’s throw to Kennedy Park, one of Miami’s top dog parks. This park is broken into different sections for large dogs and little ones and plenty of shade and seating areas for tired doggie parents to rest while the pets run off their energy. If you’re looking for agility equipment, there are also A-frames and tunnels as well as doggy water fountains in both areas.

On the Southern tip of Miami Beach at 800 South Pointe Drive is another glamorous and glassy tower across from an expansive and manicured park.

South Pointe Park is one of Miami Beach’s most iconic parks, showcasing the glittering skyline in many shots that are featured on television and movies based in the Magic City. It has an off-leash area and follows the Government Cut Inlet all the way to the South Pointe Pier, where you can watch the cruise ships come and go as your furry friend plays fetch and chase.

Apogee itself is the pinnacle of luxury in the South of Fifth neighborhood and is a regular on the “Best of” lists. The 22-story tower has just 67 residences, making availability a challenge, but the effort is well worth it. The floor-to-ceiling glass and large terraces offer the perfect backdrop for waterfront relaxation and the condo community is very welcoming to pets.

Ten Museum Park

Downtown Miami is arguably one of the most pet-friendly neighborhoods in the Magic City, they even have a “Dogs and Cats Walk Sculpture Garden” in the Maurice A. Ferre Park at Tenth Street and Biscayne Boulevard.

Just across from Ferre Park at 1040 Biscayne Boulevard is Ten Museum Park, the 100-residence tower designed by Chad Oppenheim in 2007. The loft-style floorplans in Ten Museum were among the first to herald in the new, glassy and contemporary style that is so prevalent today.

Paramount Bay

Just blocks away in Edgewater, Paramount Bay is another haven for pups. Its location at 2020 North Bayshore Drive is situated almost directly across from Margaret Pace Park, another of the top dog parks in the Miami area.

Margaret Pace Park is an 8-acre fun zone for dogs and people alike. It has two activity zones for off-leash play. There is one area for large and more active dogs and a separate enclosure for smaller or older pups. There are also plenty of water fountains for animals and people alike and a large walking trail for on-leash bayfront strolling.

Eighty Seven Park

Venturing into North Beach at 8701 Collins Avenue, we find the ultra-luxurious Eight Seven Park at one of the most advantageous locations on the beach. The private tower borders North Shore Park, a public gathering spot that boasts the North Beach Oceanside Park Bark Beach, one of the only dog-friendly beaches in the area.

Within the Renzo Piano-designed tower, there is a separate and private park solely for the residents and their family (pets included).
