‘Pup-Up’ accepting dogs @ Mid-City Apartments – Buffalo Rising
I heard about the possibility of a few more dog parks popping up around Buffalo which would be amazing considering there is a huge need. While there are some amazing dog getaways outside of town including Dog Island and Knox Farm, the town really could use some more dog friendly features and services.
At Midcity Apartments, tenants now have a cute and neat dog station that not only offers dog washing amenities, but is also designed to look and act like a ‘micro’ dog park. There’s faux turf, walkways, park-like murals, and even a fire hydrant, not to mention the handy dog wash. It’s the perfect outfit for renters who have four-legged friends, who are either Always moving, aren’t fans of walking their puppies on icy sidewalks in winter, or just wanting to keep their dogs’ coats clean all year round.

It’s not often that you come across an apartment complex that actively promotes the dog-friendly factor. Usually, it’s people first, and dogs second. In this case, the operators are while searching people with pets which is pretty awesome.
This new pup-up convenience was created by the team at Mid-City Apartments (Sinatra & Company Real Estate), with Rory Allen of ZoomBuffalo.com, who produced the park mural.
“We wanted to do something a little different,” said Nick Sinatra, founder of Sinatra & Company Real Estate. “Dogs can even defecate there – the soil has a drain and the fake grass is simply washed away. Similar to a dog park, responsible owners take care of the rest. We figured we had a little extra space, so why not? Buffalo is a dog town. It seems everyone living in the city has some kind of pet. “
“It’s a nice convenience,” Rory added. “It’s not always easy to find green space in the city, so it’s good for a pet owner because it’s fast and reliable. And sometimes a dog needs to go there in the middle of the night or on a windy winter day. I think that says a lot about the building too – you can to say that you accept pets, or that you can make a real effort to to be accepts pets.
The more I thought about this handy dog gear, the more I thought about the first floor commercial spaces that have recently come online. If there is anyone in Buffalo looking to do a pet business this would be a great place. There would be plenty of room for the dogs to roam… maybe a dog daycare, with a dog-friendly bar or cafe for owners who want to socialize? The city could definitely use something like this. At this point, the commercial spaces are pretty much concrete hulls, which is a good start for anything that involves dogs. One of them even has access to a patio. And there is already a dog pitstop in the building!
The Mid-City building has 50 apartments, 40 of which are rented. I imagine the last ten apartments will soon be claimed by pet owners, once the word gets out.
