Upscale Pet Resort Currently Under Construction in Loudoun County, Virginia
STERLING, Va., June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – The Olde Towne Pet Resort (OTPR), headquartered for more than 10 years in the Springfield, Virginia area, announces today its pet resort’s expansion into the heart of Loudoun County, Virginia’s “Dulles Technology Corridor.” Conveniently located near Dulles International Airport and the Dulles Town Center Mall, the new Sterling-based pet resort is presently under construction and scheduled to open to the public by October 1, 2011.
“The decision to expand our pet resort into the Loudoun community was easy to make,” says Steve B. Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of OTPR’s parent company, Fried Companies, Inc. “The county’s overall strong demographics and its proximity to Washington DC were key in selecting Loudoun as the new home for our second location.”
While expanding to Loudoun was an easy decision, the process has been lengthy. “The entire process — from identifying the right location, purchasing the land, creating the architectural plans and actually building out our new pet resort facility has been about a two-year adventure,” says Jones. “We have certainly tended to every possible detail before and during the construction process to create what will soon be known as a 5-star pet boarding resort with three expansive day camp rooms, 70+ newly constructed ‘cat condos’ and over 100 spacious dog boarding suites.”
The brand new facility, in total, will be approximately 32,000 square feet and includes many high-end and premium architectural features. “We sought to create stress free and comfortable animal housing for Loudoun’s companion animals complete with executive suites, swimming pools and grooming salon,” says Mark R. Hafen (AIA), founding member of Colorado-based architectural firm Animal Arts which specializes exclusively in animal care facilities. “It was exciting to work with the Old Towne Pet Resort team to develop a facility that meets the animals’ needs and streamlines OTPR operations. The end result will be a premium resort experience for Loudoun’s pets and their pet-loving families.”
“Although we are not yet open to the public, we are already accepting registrations for Thanksgiving and this year’s very busy holiday season,” says OTPR’s newly-hired Marketing Manager, Sadaf Atashbarghi. “We are also planning an exclusive pre-opening tour for local media and area bloggers who report or blog about lifestyle or pet-related topics specific to Loudoun County and Northern Virginia.”
All grand opening details and media-only pre-opening tour information will be posted on OTPR’s recently-launched blog which can be accessed by visiting http://www.oldetownepetresort.com/Dulles.
The address to OTPR’s new pet resort facility is 21460 Squire Court, Sterling, Virginia 20166.
