Since the 1970's, Adams Morgan residents have openly and actively used our public easement on the private lot at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW, in the heart of Adams Morgan, Washington, DC.

This plaza space, from the face of the bank to the corner, was given to the residents of Adams Morgan as a form of reparations for decades of racist redlining in Washington, DC, Ward One, and in Adams Morgan.

Now this public easement and entire open area at 18th Street and Columbia Road NW, including the elevated porch space, is threatened with demolition to make way for a large luxury condo project that would crush the pedestrian plaza.



Despite local courts stopping the demolition of the site in 2017, a recent Federal Court decision moves the needle towards corporate interests over that of the public and Adams Morgan residents.

This means now we will really need to fight extra hard to redevelop our plaza in the heart of Adams Morgan into a true open-air civic space.

This pedestrian intersection is important to DC history, to the ideals of open space in urban places, and is especially important in the time of any pandemic now and in the future.
