The West Heating Plant developers are working behind the scenes on designs for the proposed future use of the property that sold at auction for $19.5 in March.
The West Heating Plant site is a 2-acre lot and 20,000 square-foot building at 29th and K Streets, NW near the Georgetown waterfront. The owners are a development team that includes developer Richard Levy, New York-based The Georgetown Co. and the Four Seasons Residences.
During an Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) meeting last week, Chairman Ron Lewis said the design team would likely be making a presentation before the ANC and the Old Georgetown Board in November. He said those plans may first be presented to the public some time in October.
Prior to the auction, Georgetown civic groups and Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans lobbied for zoning restrictions and possibly a set-aside of park land on the property prior to or directly after sale. Neighbors want to see as much green space retained on the site as possible and some have said they would prefer to see any development limited to the existing footprint of the building.
