Permits have been filed for the construction of an attached structure with a roof deck at 2438 North Mascher Street in West Kensington. The property is located near the corner of North Mascher Street and West Cumberland Street. 2438 N Mascher Street LLC is the listed owner.

The property consists of a fenced-in grass lawn with taller vegetation at the perimeter, situated between two similar fenced-in lots. Such vacant lots are a common sight in the neighborhood hard hit by the depopulation of the postwar era. Two- to three-story rowhouses comprise the majority of the surviving structures. The York-Dauphin station of the Market-Frankford SEPTA line sits several blocks to the southeast.

Though the neighborhood still has a long way to go toward a significant revival, recent filings in Kensington and West Kensington show an uptick in planned new construction.
