No Pets for Macallen Building Renters

Caution to pet owners who are looking to rent an apartment in the Macallen Building, South Boston’s premier green building boasting 140 units with luxury amenities. Building management of the ultra-luxury Gold LEED certified development that was introduced to Boston in 2007 refuses pets for renters based on policies in the HOA’s condominium documents.

Recently, there have been apartments for rent at the Macallen Building that had inaccurate listing details, implying to potential renters that pets are allowed, yet following a standard review process by building management of all renters, the no pet policy for renters becomes explicit.

It’s quite common for condominium developments throughout Boston to have some sort of pet policy in place, oftentimes limiting the number and/or size of pets that are allowed on site, however, the differentiation between owners and renters at a particular building and disparate policies for each is perhaps less common.
