Double Standard in Woodley Park?

I’ll admit that I haven’t been following the controversy over 2910 Garfield St. NW too closely. Basically one house was demolished, some “100-year-old oak and red cedar trees” were cut down and the developer plans on building two “5,000-square-foot homes on the site”. I’m saddened by the fact that the old trees were cut down but when I was walking by I couldn’t help but notice what seemed to be a bit of a double standard. Across their street there are a number of rowhouses with signs that say “No Subdivision, No McMansions”. I’m not saying these homes are McMansions but I imagine they are on a plot that was most definitely subdivided. See photo below:
