Dear PoP – Proposed Rendering for Old Mansion in Mt. Pleasant

“Dear PoP,

The bottom line is that they’re putting an addition on the house, cutting in a couple new entrances, plowing under the garden to create a small parking lot, and cobbling the house itself into ten apartments.

I took an interest in this place because of it was untouched by the ravages of stupid modern-day renovations. Unlike almost any property in Mount Pleasant (or central d.c.) its a house with a yard. This new plan will ruin the place in the same fashion of the big white mansion next door.”

You can see the full proposal below. Do you agree with the reader or think it’ll be a good renovation?
