1400 block of Taylor St, NW

Just noticed these signs coming home yesterday on the 1400 block of Taylor Street, NW (a block away from the controversial pop up on Shepherd.) Their facebook page says:

“The redevelopment of single-family townhomes into multi-unit condos is a growing trend in DC. This controversial practice can have deep impacts on existing residential neighborhoods. Many residents feel they do not have a voice. Share your experiences and advice here!”

WAMU reported on the controversial plans for 1444 Taylor St, NW:

“The single-family home on Taylor Street was sold in August 2013 for $525,000 to Mubashir Khan, a developer hoping to expand it upwards and outwards with the intention of turning the rowhouse into a four-unit condo building. It would gain a third story, and with a new rear addition be twice the size it is now.”

It’s a really interesting story worth reading plus you can check a rendering there too.

Stay tuned.
