Yesterday I asked how people get curb cuts on new construction. Today, I’d like to ask how folks get permission to build pop ups this tall. We’ve judged these buildings on Monroe Street, NW (just west of 14th) before but I’m curious about the one in the middle. I’d imagine the owner(s) has to be pissed being squashed between two big pop ups like this. Can these be built simply by applying for a permit?
