The City of Berkeley is more than a college town; it is a magnet for brilliance. Influential, exciting and artistic, it is a hub for fearless innovators, brawny businesses, and now smarter living experiences, thanks to the arrival of Modera Berkeley.This new high-style community is comprised of four distinct buildings, each one with its own mix of amenities and aesthetics. What unites them is simple: A devotion to beautiful design and functionality. Original exposed brick walls in select homes make you feel right at home as you sip your coffee over gleaming quartz countertops or write that dissertation overlooking sweeping city views. Then head out to enjoy some grilling, gaming, cycling, and most importantly, all the downtime you deserve. Outside, it feels as if the city revolves around you. Feel the urge to be inspired? Head to the Berkeley Arts District or Aurora Theatre Company. Famished? Take a stroll down Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues to check out the birthplace of the farm-to-table movement. Or just take a ride down a Bicycle Boulevard and revel in the bohemian spirit of this city. This is where everyone wants to be, and you have the opportunity to live.Modera Berkeley is a stunning new community in a hotspot overflowing with action and ambition. And from it, there is virtually nothing you can not accomplish.

What to keep in mind when looking for pet friendly apartments in Berkeley, CA

Renting pet-friendly apartments in Berkeley should offer peace of mind and convenience for our furry friends. It’s crucial to find an apartment that’ll work for both you and your pet. Before signing a pet-friendly apartment, take your time to study the layout and ask plenty of questions.

Some pet-friendly apartments in Berkeley may request a pet deposit or only accept certain dog breeds. You should also consider if the floors are hardwood or carpeted. Hardwood may be easier to clean-up fur and a mess but could mean your neighbors below hear the tapping of your dog running past. An outdoor balcony can also be ideal for a pet who needs some fresh air.

Consider the neighborhood of any pet-friendly apartments in Berkeley. Are they near a dog park or a vet? You should also research the rates of dog walkers in your area. It may be less expensive to move to a nearby neighborhood with a lower pet deposit, a better layout for your pet, and cheaper services.
