Popping Up on Otis and 11th Street


A reader sends this one in from Otis Place, NW between 11th and 13th.

“Looks very well done!”

Def. good potential here. Looking forward to seeing the finished work.

And below is one from 11th just north south of Euclid St, NW:

  • these pop ups look great…i like how it keeps with the ‘old style’ of the row houses. I wish all the pop ups did that. I love the point triangle at the top and the large rounded bay windows on the second floor of the other one! good job!

  • Best pop-up I’ve seen yet.

  • I dunno — it looks nice, but on the other hand I’m not sure why the wall extends up beyond the base of the “cone”. That looks strange to my eye. I do appreciate the effort to mimic the original style. The best pop-ups are the ones you can’t spot.

    • My guess is either a roof deck will go in there and they’re using the high parapets in lieu of railings, or (more likely) they’re going to add a wood-framed mansard roof.

  • The second one is just SOUTH of Euclid and seems to have a complete stop with the tyvek paper is almost completely blown off.

  • It’s helpful that it’s on the corner. Although it looks all done, the proportions still look off. But not nearly as bad as I’ve seen. The one below, look so out of place. Those are the ones that I don’t like.

  • the developer of the house at 13th and Otis is doing another house on 13th St. NW just south of there. As a neighbor, I can say he seems to be doing a solid job. I believe they will both be condos.

  • Very impressed by the masonry popup! They’ve even reproduced the details under the eaves. I want to walk over and shake the owner’s hand. Well done.

    Nothing’s going on at the house on Euclid. The housewrap has been flapping in the wind for a couple of months.
