Is Luxury Real Estate Dog (or Cat) Friendly?

Our pets are often an important part of our families, and they have to be part of our thought process when we plan for the smallest events and decisions as well as all the way up to major decisions like those regarding Luxury Real Estate!


With that in mind, being the visionary that I am (pause for laughter) I decided to do my clients a service and build up some data on Pet Policies at some of the beautiful High Rises that attract the high end buyers in our fair city! 


Getting right to it, the following buildings ALL allow both dogs and cats, but some have restrictions.  Here is the ‘fine print’ for 14 well known buildings that allow dogs and cats.  I hope this is helpful!



132 Delaware – no limits 
161 Chicago (Olympia) – Total weight of all pets must be 30 lbs or less
340 Randolph – Total weight of all pets must be 150 lbs or less
840 Lakeshore Dr – no limits
900 N. Michigan – no limits
950 N. Michigan – Dogs must be 30 lbs or less
Belvedere – Dogs and cats allowed but we did not get further detail
Bristol – Dogs must be 25 lbs or less
Carlyle – Dogs and cats are allowed but we did not get further detail
Chicago Place – Dogs must be 80 lbs or less, with case by case exceptions
Elysian – no limits
Fordham – no limits
Pinnacle – no limits
Trump Tower – no limits
Water Tower Place – Dogs and cats are allowed but we did not get further detail

Were there any buildings that DO NOT allow pets?  Yes, the Carlyle does not allow dogs and cats.

Speaking of our beautiful dogs and cats, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation will benefit from a charity dog walk event on October 17 called “Bark for Breast Cancer research”!  The event is supported by two fine firms, The CosMedic Skin and Body Clinic and Tails in the City.  The walk will kick off at 10:30am from the CosMedic Clinic at 58 East Walton.  Go to for more information.



Finally, it looks like there will be fabulous weather this weekend for the amazing Chicago Marathon, taking off at 7:30am on Sunday October 10.  Even if you don’t know any runners it will still be a fun event, with live music at many points along the race route and tons of fun activities in Grant Park.  I’ll have a bird’s-eye view from my ‘perch’ looking over the race from my high rise at the south end of Grant Park. 

Good Luck Everyone!!!!!
