Dear PoPville,

Thought you might be interested in this house now being built on 14th PL NE near H street/Capitol Hill. Slightly different than your usual “Pop Up” posts. The original 2 story house on this plot burned over 30 years ago. For many years this was an empty plot of land that a few neighbors used as a community garden. Last year the city sold it to a developer who despite ANC opposition was able to get a permit to rebuild a house to include a cellar, 3 stories and a rooftop deck. The developer’s plan is to break it up into 2 units. The neighborhood opposition was around the height since all the other properties on this block are only 2 stories high.
