— A Raleigh City Council committee decided Monday to move forward with plans to rezone an office building in Cameron Village to a shopping center and pedestrian business area.

City planners said that the company plans to tear down the existing building at the corner of Oberlin Road and Clark Avenue to put in retail space on the bottom floor. The zoning would allow the builders to add up to 250 housing units to the upper floors, as long as the building does not exceed five stories.

The committee will recommend the plan to the full council on Nov. 1.
