$215-Million Heating Plant Condo Project Starts Next Month
At last, the demolition of the vacant West Heating Plant at 1051-55 29th St. NW is slated to begin after Sept. 5, making way for a 10-story, high-end condo building with about 70 units. Thirty percent of the structure will be preserved — including the western facade entrance. The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts gave final approval in late May.
Project designers include architect David Adjaye, known for his work on the National Museum of African American History as well as D.C. public libraries, and landscape architect Laurie Olin — along with SLCE Architects LLP, Robert Silman Associates and Cosentini Associates.
The residences will be managed by the Four Seasons Hotel, directly north of the plant, which stands astride the C&O Canal and Rock Creek. The property will add a one-acre public park to Georgetown at K Street.
The work is expected to last 33 months and cost $215 million — look for a 2026 completion.
The Levy Group Ltd., led by Richard Levy, and New York’s The Georgetown Company purchased the building and property from the General Services Administration in 2013 for $19.5 million.
Work Begins for 3220 Prospect With 45 Units
Across from Cafe Milano and Peacock Cafe, the Colonial Parking lot is gone. They’re digging up the dirt. The project at 3220 Prospect St. NW calls for a five-story building with some setbacks, containing about 45 condominium units. There will also be a parking garage in the building.
Owned by the Weaver family, which runs its hardware business next to the property, the condos — sometimes named Prospect Place — are being developed with KS Prospect LLC. The architect is Hickok Cole.
