Virtually every new apartment building in the metro today is outfitted with a pack of pet amenities. One of the best (and most unusual) is at LPM Apartments (Loring Park Minneapolis) where there’s a doggie-themed resident lounge with a big-screen TV, dog-themed art and an indoor dog play room with floor drains (for accidents) and a fake hydrant.
