Dallas City Council this week could approve a developer’s plan to create seven apartments in a former church rectory building in Sunset Hill.

The 10,690-square-foot building, on West Tenth at Brighton, was built in 1975 as part of Calvary Baptist Church, which is across the street.

The developer, Genesis Real Estate Group, is asking for a zoning change to allow apartments in a single-family neighborhood, with plans to renovate the existing building.

Genesis offered to limit the multifamily use to the existing building, to preclude apartments from being built there if the rectory is demolished.

The rear yard is big enough for 13 parking spaces. The developer is planning a two-bedroom apartment and six one-bedrooms.
