If you’ve been yearning for a tour of the Chernobyl-looking GenOn abandoned power facility overlooking the Potomac River before its torn down for redevelopment, the property’s developer is offering a unique opportunity to do so.

On Friday, June 4, and Saturday, June 5, from 8-11 a.m., Hilco Redevelopment Partners is planning to host guided tours of the Potomac River Generating Station (PRGS) site in Old Town North.

“The tours are the third in a series of community meetings regarding the transformation of the PRGS site and will offer members of the public an opportunity to visit the site,” Hilco said on its website, “which has been closed off from Old Town North and the waterfront for decades.”

The site was permanently closed in 2012. Hilco purchased the site last November and has announced plans to eventually convert the property into mixed-use development.

Tours are planned at 15-minute intervals and groups are limited to 10 people.

Alternative dates are June 18 and 19 if there’s inclement weather. Mobility assistance is available if needed and a translator will be available for those requiring Spanish language translation.

The spots have already partially filled up and, as or writing, only early-morning slots were available on Friday and Saturday.
