West Heating Plant Decision Pending


A public hearing regarding the West Heating Plant on 29th Street in Georgetown was held by the mayor’s agent, the official designated by the mayor to perform various functions under D.C.’s historic preservation law. At the hearing, on July 16 and 17, Georgetown 29K Acquisition LLC, which plans to build the Four Seasons Residences at 1055 29th St. NW, made the claim that “the proposed demolition is necessary in the public interest because it is necessary to construct a project of special merit.” “There is no set time frame” for a ruling, lead developer Richard Levy told The Georgetowner. However, a decision by the end of the year is likely. “I remain cautiously optimistic,” Levy added, saying he expected the work to begin “hopefully in my lifetime.”
