San Marco Dogtopia construction permit is in review

Business to offer animal boarding, indoor and outdoor play areas and day care.

The city is reviewing a permit for contractor Emerald C’s Development Inc. to renovate a San Marco building at 1075 Hendricks Ave. for Dogtopia.

The $463,829 project is for the renovation of 3,960 square feet of space.

The animal boarding and day care facility includes interior playrooms and an outdoor play area.

Dogtopia was awarded conceptual approval by the Downtown Development Review Board in January and will return for final approval.

The vacant building on a 0.33-acre site will require interior and exterior renovations including a reconfiguration of the parking spaces. 

Happy Family LLC owns the land and will install a circular driveway for easy drop-off and pickup, in addition to new parking along the side of the building for clients and employees, according to the DDRB approval.

Dogtopia, based in Phoenix, will be led locally by franchisees Addie and Ali Kasraeian.
