Two projects a block apart in Dilworth are up for rezoning soon, and if approved they would fill in small lots near Kenilworth Avenue and East Boulevard with dozens of housing units.
First up: A petition to rezone about four tenths of an acre at Kenilworth and Fillmore avenues. The plan would allow building nine townhouses on vacant land next to the Kenilworth Commons shopping center. The rezoning, submitted by Meeting Street Homes, is up for a public hearing before city council on February 16.

I live in this neighborhood, and it's been pretty interesting watching the changes over the past several years. With all of the hulking apartment projects under construction nearby featuring hundreds of units, this scale of infill development is a nice change of pace.
