The owner of a Stapleton dog "spaw" is looking to open a salon in the space at 2005 Willow St.

Gabby Bear LLC applied with the city to change the type of businesses that are allowed to operate at a building currently occupied by the Digstown dog daycare, according to documents filed with Denver City Council.

The company expects to open a salon with rental suites for beauticians, according to the application.

If the council OKs the changes, the owner would also be entitled to build a 3-story structure with multiple uses on the site, including housing and businesses. But that's not currently on the table, according to the application. Company representative Mark Kung confirmed that there are no concrete plans to redevelop the 1-story building.

The city council's development committee OK'd the change Tuesday. It now heads to a vote of the full legislative body in March.
