Historical Horse’s Award? Nominee – 600 Block of D St, SE

This property on the 600 block of D St, SE is gigantic. It is cool property in and of itself (taking up almost a full block) but then I spotted the historical connection – General George Washington stayed here:

Apparently “The Maples” was built in 1797 and later became “The Friendship House” under the United Way:

It seems the property sold in March 2010 for $2,600,000 (asking price was $5,500,000). That seems like good news. Anyone know what the plans are here?
