West Heating Plant, Georgetown

West Heating Plant, Georgetown

Designed in a heroic Moderne style, the former General Services Administration heating plant in Georgetown was designed by William Dewey Foster and completed in 1948. Located on a site on Rock Creek and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal with spectacular views, the property was sold to a developer in 2013; current plans propose to demolish most of the building, replacing the volume with a new structure to accommodate luxury condominiums. The Commission last reviewed this project in May 2017.
