Austin, TX, is set to get a $16 million indoor dog park.

With over 50,000 square feet of off-leash space, the air-conditioned facility will be called Canine Commons, Statesman.com reports.

The news outlet quoted a press release saying the development will be “among the largest dog parks ever built.”

It will employ as many as 35 people and have retail space, a coffee shop and training areas.

The dog park is being planned by Corbyt and TACKarchitects, both based in Omaha, NE. They’re considering various sites in Austin, according to Statesman.com.
