Pet-Friendly Apartments in Center City

The Metropolitan offers the most accommodating pet-friendly apartments and luxury residences in Center City. Our 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom floor plans provide modern living spaces and upscale amenities, including an on-site dog wash station, that will appeal to you and your pets’ lifestyle. Situated a few blocks from several of Philadelphia’s historic squares, great dog parks, and trails, you’ll enjoy the convenience of our pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. 

Apart from just having a policy welcoming four-legged friends, The Metropolitan offers residences that meet the unique needs of pet owners. The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are spacious, offering plenty of room for pets and their humans to peacefully coexist. Ample closet space will be more than enough to store all of the belongings of both residents and their animals, while the in-unit washer and dryer are a perfect touch for pet owners whose animals may be shedders.

Finding the time and the right space for Fido to expel some extra energy is crucial to a dog’s health and happiness. Take a quick stroll around the corner to Dilworth Park, a dog and family-friendly park located in front of City Hall. Complete with massive sculptures, café tables, and a fountain built for play, Dilworth Park is a great place for a warm afternoon in the city.

Just over a mile from The Metropolitan lies Schuylkill River Park, which provides a trail run and an enclosed dog run that contains water, tree shade, and park benches. A perfect place for both small and large dogs, the Schuylkill River Dog Park provides biodegradable waste bags and is one of the only places in the city that allows off-leash play.

Even though The Metropolitan is in the heart of Center City, it’s also situated near many parks, including Cret and Levy Park. The Benjamin Franklin Parkway, located just one block from our Center City apartment building, is lined with gardens and museums, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just two miles from our apartments.

From pet food and treats to toys and more, pet supply stores near our pet-friendly apartments in Center City are a necessity when caring for your animals. Less than a 15-minute walk from your front door, you will find a PetSmart where you can get anything and everything you might need when it comes to your pet. Heading toward Rittenhouse Square, another favorite public green space to enjoy, you will find Rittenhouse Pet Supply, complete with most mainstream and specialty dog and cat carriers, foods, toys, and more. Have a busy schedule? Rittenhouse Pet Supply offers Tuesday and Thursday deliveries to most of Center City, South Philly, and nearby areas.

At The Metropolitan, you and your pet will enjoy several community and in-unit apartment amenities, such as the rooftop deck with exceptional Center City views, a comfortable resident lounge, and a convenient dog wash station.
