Big pop up update from the Washington Post:

“The D.C. Zoning Commission took its first action on Monday night against developers building the city’s growing number of pop-up homes, voting to reduce the maximum by-right height of single-family rowhouses to 35 feet, down from 40, in some of the city’s gentrifying neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, Shaw and Columbia Heights.”

The Post does note that the vote, “also allowed residents or developers to pursue a special exception if they want a 40-foot tall building.”
