A planned five-building development east of the Anacostia River on Poplar Point has been eyed for government agencies and is under consideration for Amazon HQ2, but now the project could see a significant delay.

A group of opponents has filed an appeal with the D.C. Court of Appeals, contesting the Zoning Commission approval of Redbrick LMD’s 2.3M SF Poplar Point development, which has been branded Columbian Quarter.  The appeal was filed by Aristotle Theresa, an attorney who has led the charge against D.C. development in recent years, bringing over a dozen projects to court and recently suing the city over issues of gentrification.

Theresa, reached by email, said he is representing several opponents who are jointly appealing the Poplar Point project. He said the plaintiffs include CARE, an east-of-the-river community organization, Tendani Mpulubusi El, the founder of a Ward 8 arts group, and Paulette Matthews and Greta Fuller, Southeast D.C. residents who are also involved in his suit against D.C. Theresa decline to comment further.

Sitting on a tree-lined street at the southern tip of Hill East, this two-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom blue brick rowhouse looks out to the Anacostia River and boasts an updated kitchen graced by a working fireplace. The sellers say Fourth of July fireworks are easy to see from the front of the house, which recently entered the market for $599,999. The address is 1360 L St. SE.

There are wood floors throughout, and in the back, an expansive screened-in porch offers a tranquil place to relax or entertain. It comes with an overhead fan and skylights. Behind the porch, the fenced backyard includes a brick patio, raised garden beds, and a big storage shed. The Potomac Avenue Metro station and bus routes are a little over five minutes away by foot.
