Hello! We found an awesome duplex that we think has the potential to be turned into a triplex down the road. I've found that it is zoned RT1 per this: https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/safety-inspecti...
However, it doesn't seem to mention a triplex, especially if it's in a home in a residential neighborhood and not a small building. What zoning does that fall under?
You would need RM1 or higher. RT1 allows for up to 2-family properties.
@Dustin S. Do you happen to know anyone who has gone from the RT1 to RM1? If a neighborhood has plenty of duplexs but maybe not as many triplexs, does that mean the city likely wouldn't re-zone that home?
You could call zoning and ask or apply for a variance, but it is unlikely, from my understanding, to be able to convince them that the conversion complies with the following guidelines:
@Dustin S. That link looks to bring me to a 404, which page were you trying to link?
@Dustin S. Awesome! Thanks :) I'm hoping that due to how the current owner finished the basement we may have a chance, but worse case if we can't, we just have to figure out what to do with a weird not bedroom (it needs an egress window) that they made downstairs where everyone can go currently..
