I have been a supporter for the renovation of the West Heating Plant since 2012. The CAG board has not yet had the opportunity to vote on the David Adjaye’s most recent modifications to his plans for transforming the West Heating Plant into a Four Seasons Residential Condominium. However, my personal view is that Adjaye’s new plan has created an exciting design that should be approved and built. Hats off to the Levy Group, The Georgetown Company and The Four Seasons for involving CAG and the community’s input from the very beginning.

Over the years while on the ANC, I closely followed the development of plans for the West Heating Plant project. In the current plan, David Adjaye has arrived at a design that recognizes the historic value and design strength of the existing building while transforming the structure into an exciting residential property with a beautiful public park, a solution the immediate neighbors -- including me -- and the community have long awaited.

I am very pleased that Laurie Olin, one of our country’s preeminent landscape architects, is designing the public park that will cover the old coal yard of the West Heating Plant, and finally provide an important link between Rock Creek Park, the C&O Canal and the Georgetown Waterfront Park. His design is impressive and equally as impressive is that it will complete the National Capital Planning Commission’s vision for our Waterfront Park.

How wonderful that this alien object, the West Heating Plant, forced on Georgetown by the Federal Government in the 1940s without any community input, will be transformed into a welcoming community asset. The project is truly a success story - a transparent process, input from all sides over several years, and iterative design by world class talents on the developer's side. We are so fortunate to have David Adjaye, Laurie Olin and The Levy Group leading this effort.
