“Dear PoPville,

My partner and I have been watching the developments pop up in our neighborhood. It has been great! Although, the development being built at 1250 9th Street NW is becoming a suburban eyesore in historic Blagden Alley! We’ve been watching as they began slapping on siding. Much to our horror they now have three different colored sidings on the building. I’ve seen that the original plans submitted to the city called for a stucco exterior on these sections. Do you know if this modification to their original plans was ever approved? They are really ruining the aesthetics of an otherwise charming little area. I really hope the city steps in an puts a stop to this.”

Ed. Note: You can see renderings from the developer here.
