The West Heating Plant is going up for auction on the GSA site sometime in November. The bidding hasn't opened yet, but the site is live and has a few pictures and basic stats about what is for sale. Whoever does plop down the chunk of money for this prime Georgetown real estate is going to have plenty of opportunity for some demolition action and attending all those fun neighborhood meetings. Indoors it has been called an 'erector set' and there will certainly be neighborly opposition to what ever the winning bidders propose to build there. Most likely it will become a residential building, but the people have spoken and they don't want very many people to live there and they want a park on the grounds too.
