Got official word from DCRA this morning that the R-4 pop-up and conversion restrictions are NOT in effect yet.

Until the order is published in the DC Register (and @hgil tweets it), there is no change to the way DCRA handles conversion applications.

And while the rules may be retroactive, if a permit is approved between now and Register publication, it will not be rescinded.

@WBJNeibs: Thanks for clarifying that Zoning Case 14-11 R-4 pop-up regulations are NOT yet in effect - until published in the DC Register

This explains, by the way, why we had a four-unit, R-4 conversion in yesterday's edition of permits... http://www.bizjournals.com/washington/breaking_ground/2015/06/onward-apollo-a-conversion-that-sneaked-through.html …

All of this conversion/pop-up info will be on the DCRA website soon, possibly today.
