Council approves shopping center rezoning | Local News

City Council voted late Monday to approve a rezoning application to allow more types of businesses in and around the Walnut Mall – but not without concerns from an adjacent resident and questions from two council members .

The mall sits between the triangle-shaped intersection of West Raleigh Boulevard and Walnut Street, adjacent to the former National Guard Armory and just southwest of downtown. The applicant, Arpan Makam, requested the rezoning.
