Arlington is such of a great "walk-able community" with loads of lovely locations! If Walter Reed Dr. does not work out for you...try any of the Bozzuto buildings on Columbia Pike (Halstead or Siena Park) both not far from Giant, Lost Dog, Drafthouse, Mrs. Chen's, Twisted Vine, etc. and easy commute to metro. They are use to folks coming to our area for work and do shorter leases and are VERY pet friendly. (I have witnessed first hand that the lobby seems to be the spot for the dogs to come and connect on their way outside! It's also where they keep the doggie treats! LOL) :0)
Of course, there are also some great Equity properties that do the same thing. (Equity just acquired all of the Archstone properties in our DMV area.)
Anyway...hope that helps and maybe I'll run into you at the Columiba Pike Farmer's Market this weekend! Give me a call if you need more information!
