Good suggestions from the others. In my personal experience it is likely you'll need a team of professionals to do the conversion. An important part of the team will be a Realtor. I found the city of Austin to be "unhelpful" to me trying to do it myself. I wasted many months and tens of thousands of dollars. I was not Realtor at that time.

to check on a specific property and what kind of zoning the neighborhood has. If it's mixed use of commercial and residential, for example, then it's easy for the specific property to switch zones. Where you're likely to run into problems will be in neighborhoods with strong neighborhood associations that are strongly against change. In any event, the place to start is the link I provided.
