Pop-up house on A Street SEThe District’s zoning panel this week officially signed off on rules that reduce the height limit for new pop-up homes on Capitol Hill and other D.C. neighborhoods.

The maximum height for single-family town houses has decreased from 40 to 35 feet under the regulations the D.C. Zoning Commission endorsed Monday, The Washington Post reported. Earlier this year, the rules received preliminary approval from the panel and support from neighborhood leaders in the Capitol Hill area.

Locals have complained that pop-up construction has changed the character of residential streets, blocked sunlight and caused other problems.

Do you support the new pop-up height limit? You can weigh in through the poll and in the comments.
