D.C. Site Pitched For Amazon HQ2 Facing Activist Appeal

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.

The Horizon is the second of three short-term family housing programs opening this fall, following the opening of The Kennedy in Ward 4.

At The Horizon, families will have access to service-enriched programming that will help them stabilize and exit homelessness. The site includes 35 family units, computer labs for residents, administrative space for staff and providers, outdoor playground and recreational space, age-appropriate indoor recreation space, a homework and study lounge, and other amenities.
