The Quincy City Council has approved a measure crucial to a mixed-use development project in North Quincy and separately is considering selling land for an unrelated real estate development in the downtown.

The proposed sale of land for a 15-story residential tower in Quincy Center will be debated during a committee meeting at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 9.

The council, meanwhile, voted 8-0 to approve a lease of air rights above the North Quincy MBTA station for the project that will feature apartments, retail space, and parking.
