From an email:

“We are gaining new supporters but time may become a factor. The comments period on proposed zoning changes ends on Sept. 15. If the downzoning group gets their way, all existing R-5-B lots could be rezoned downwards to R-4 status.

We are battling the downzoners in Lanier Heights, but there are downzoners all over the city and it needs to become a city wide issue.

For more information visit our website NEIGHBORS AGAINST DOWNZONING

Ed. Note: Previously we talked about the Lanier Heights ‘Stop Pop Ups’ vs ‘Stop Nimby-ism’ here and downzoning could “could cost you $100,000 – $200,000 – $300,000 – OR MORE…” here.

Update on “Ugly Pop-Ups: Destroying Family Housing on Lanier Place.”.   Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above:

“A few days ago, I was walking on Lanier Place and saw these signs in front of that pop-up. This is just getting ridiculous and makes our friendly neighborhood seem not that friendly.”

And I spotted this ‘Stop Nimby-ism’ sign outside the Adamo development coming to the former Adams Morgan Exxon Station:

Last month we talked about this sign “Ugly Pop-Ups: Destroying Family Housing on Lanier Place.”. Following is an attempt to explain from a neighbor, Gary Tischler.

A while back, I had a talk with a neighborhood friend about popups and their implications to the Lanier Heights neighborhood, standing right across the street from one of those popups next to the day care center. He offered up the idea that maybe people should get used to the idea of change, and the popups and the targeting of the neighborhood by developers was one of those change things that might be inevitable.

That may be so, but something’s getting lost in that discussion. I saw it in the cavalier notice given by the developer reps that they had indeed targeted our neighborhood and were indeed seeking to get people to sell their houses in order to convert them to condos, and in the comments on the net that followed Paul’s signs next door to his new neighbors. In most of the comments—most of them from people who don’t live here—the attitude was one of surprise or anger that neighborhood residents—be they homeowners or renters—would object to the presence of the popups, or openly oppose the idea.

Many folks—mostly homeowners—are upset about this wholesale attempt to basically alter our neighborhood. That’s what’s getting lost in the discussions—the consequences to the neighborhood if the developers succeed.

What will happen to put it very simply is that the nature of the neighborhood will be dramatically changed to the point where we will lose most of the things, the characteristics of the neighborhood that we love.

I’m not trying to speak for other people—I’m a renter, and we’ve lived here for well over 15 years now. I found the neighborhood early on to be deceptive—I mean it looks on the surface to be kind of a bucolic place, quiet, a kind of residential, one-family housing island close to but also separate from the street scene on Columbia Road, the traffic on Calvert and the night and day bustle of 18th Street and all that entails, all of which by the way add the special urban flavor that everyone loves.

“Dear PoPville,

Someone is incensed by what is, in my opinion, a relatively tastefully done Pop-Up. There is no historic designation in this area and the developer could have used much cheaper materials and been more aggressive on the massing had they wanted to go as cheap as possible. The signs wouldn’t cause me to be worried about buying in this building but they would definitely make me think twice about what kind of neighbors I’d have.”

I have to agree with the OP – I don’t think this one looks too bad at all, maybe a little funky in the back, but overall looks pretty good to me. What do you guys think of this pop up?
