Fidus Pet Concierge Communities, in partnership with Cypress Equity Investments, delivers a new lifestyle concept for Dallas dog owners and their furry friends. The first and only pet-centric luxury apartment communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex boast unique features in every apartment, canine-focused amenities, and an array of on-site pet services and social events.
There are currently two Fidus communities in operation – Cross Creek at Grapevine Ranch in Grapevine and Equinox on the Park in Garland – with a third Dallas-area property anticipated to debut in 2022. Additionally, Fidus plans to acquire and renovate four to six more properties in the Dallas area over the next 24 months in advance of a larger market rollout across the Sunbelt.
Fidus Pet Concierge Communities do not have any blanket breed or weight restrictions. The new resident application process includes in-person temperament tests for each dog, ensuring that every pet resident is friendly. Aggressive dogs are not permitted, regardless of breed or size.
Each apartment includes dog-focused features and technology, as well as a collection of shared pet amenities and services. There is a doggy door in every home that directly leads to either a private fenced yard or a dog-safe balcony/patio with a porch relief system, as well as a pet-focused tech package to help address pet parents’ concerns when away from the apartment.
The Fidus pet-focused tech package includes on-demand dog nanny services; keyless entry for residents and the Fidus Pet Concierge; Furbo treat dispensers with artificial intelligence capabilities that will alert residents via text if their dog is barking or in distress; Nest thermostats for remote temperature management, ensuring pets stay cool and comfortable all day long; and three cameras in each apartment so residents can monitor their pet both indoors and outdoors.
Residents will also enjoy conveniences afforded by the Fidus Care Center. These centers – the first of which will open at Equinox on the Park in late 2022 – will be open daily from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm and offer services including onsite doggy daycare, boarding, grooming, dog walking, and in-unit feeding, all of which can be requested via the Fidus mobile app. The app enables residents to book pet care services on demand, chat with a pet concierge, schedule pick-up/drop-off services for their pet, and access webcams to take a peek at their pet at doggy daycare.
The upscale communities feature lush dog parks, group activities such as morning dog walks, training classes, and more. DNA-based testing is used to identify pet waste offenders, who are then subject to lease violation fines.
Fidus partnered with local rescues, shelters and foster networks. For every confirmed lease that results from a partner referral, the resident receives $50 off their registration fee and the participating shelter or rescue is given a $200 donation.
