I live in an apartment complex (11 one bedroom units) on a street that has mixed use buildings on it. Small markets, hair salons, offices, apartments, etc. I am interested in purchasing the complex and converting the front unit into an office, the last four units into a house, and then keeping the middle six as one bedroom units. Where do I find how the parcel is zoned? To who and how do I submit my proposal? Does the zoning have to be mixed use? If that particular parcel is zoned residential, what options do I have to still follow through with the conversion? If I own the property and it is zoned mixed use, am I free to do what I please with the property? Would the amount of apartment units (as a whole) the city wants enter into the equation? Thanks.
