809 Upshur Street, NW in 2017

From an email:

“Long story short, a developer is threatening to block our only means of egress from the back of our building. Timber does not have access to the alley, so all deliveries, trash, and most importantly our fire escape all come from the back and then use this side sidewalk. The developer was not interested in coming up with an amicable solution, and instead told us to build a stairway over the top of the building.

This sidewalk has been there for decades and has always been used as a means of egress. I was hoping someone might have some good insight on how to stop this, so we can continue to operate safely and effectively!”
