Zoning changes that would allow two multifamily housing projects to move forward in the West End and Macalester-Groveland neighborhoods were approved by the Saint Paul City Council on April 28.

The property at 1164 W. Seventh St. was rezoned from townhouse to multifamily residential to make way for a market-rate apartment building with 10-14 one-bedroom units. The property is now occupied by a building that had been used as sober housing.

The council also approved the rezoning of a vacant lot at 1291 Saint Clair Ave. from local business to Traditional Neighborhoods 3 to allow Hovda Properties to construct a mixed-use building. The lot was occupied for years by an electrical power substation.
