Bangladesh sent an application to convert the home into a chancery, and the District of Columbia Board of Zoning Appeals decided to deny the request. The Embassy of Bangladesh disagreed with the denial of its application, stating that the building was located in a designated chancery zone. Bangladesh sold the building to the Republic of Chile, which successfully established its embassy in the building.
