West Heating Plant to be Converted to Condos

October 23, 2013

Washington City Paper reported yesterday on the planned conversion of Georgetown’s vacant West Heating Plant into the most expensive condos in town. Last night, developer Richard Levy and architect David Adjaye presented their plans to the public. Details were still sparse—there’s much to be planned, let alone approved by the various preservation authorities—but the team shared its vision.

The facade facing 29th Street is the only one that will be preserved; the other three will be torn down due to structural deficiencies and lack of natural light and rebuilt in a style that mimics the building’s jagged brick corners. And, the stairway up to the property is intended to make the area under the Whitehurst Freeway more inviting.
