“Dear PoPville,

I’m the owner of 649 Kenyon St NW, and wanted to share with you the incredible work of world renowned London muralist Remi Rough on my home in Washington DC! I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been able to participate in the DC Mural Project District Walls some of the other murals which you have featured on your site. My wonderful neighbor allowed me to set up a GoPro in her home across the street so that way I could capture a time lapse of the mural’s creation, and I thought you might want to check it out”

“Dear PoPville,

I thought that this was interesting. I’ve seen a lot of pop-up and additions in the back but, never an addition/extension like this going right out to the sidewalk. I guess the 70/30 rule for structures on a lot is really gone. I wouldn’t be terribly happy if I was the next door neighbor. House is at Georgia and Irving Streets NW.”

From the owners of Midlands:

“To our concerned neighbors and fellow beer & sandwich aficionados. We’re still here, alive and kicking. Investors haven’t dropped out, DCRA isn’t trying to put us in a corner and we didn’t open up the 7th circle of hell when we cut through the concrete to install all new plumbing. Btw, cutting open a concrete slab 6″ thick to dig another 6′ down isn’t something that happens overnight. Or in two weeks. It’s hard work folks. Due to some unfortunate hiccups in the permitting and building process we are way behind schedule (as you all know), but fret not! For we are back on track and building away! We don’t want to jinx ourselves by giving an opening timeline, but we are very comfortable with the progress we are now making. Please join our Facebook page for all the most recent information. Such as photos of us emptying 15,000 lbs of concrete rubble at the dump. Exciting stuff. AND if you see us out there sweating away feel free to stop and ask what’s up! If we have time we will even try to give you a little tour.

Take care and we will see you all very soon!

Robin, Trent, Tony & Peyton”


“Dear PoPville,

Perhaps I’m just frustrated, but I know many of my neighbors are feeling the same way. It seems like in our neighborhood, there have been a lot of big deal restaurants that have been in a stage of development for months if not years.
There are at least 3 restaurants in particular:

1. Hilltop – which has been coming soon for over a year
2. Tipsy Peacock– which has been “about to open” according to its owner since late 2014 and
3. Most discouragingly, Midlands, the much hyped beer garden whose website still says opening in Summer.

Do you have any updates on any of these restaurants? Also, is this a thing that affects all restaurants? Or is there something special about ours that is making it difficult to open these locations?”
