In October 2020, Philadelphia YIMBY reported that permits have been filed for a single-family rowhouse at 1238 North Howard Street near the junction of Fishtown and Olde Kensington. Our recent site visit has revealed that no construction has taken place since, though an updated construction permit issued this January indicates that the project is still under development. Designed by Interface Studio Architects and developed by Callahan Ward (which also serves as the contractor), the building will rise three stories plus basement, span 1,539 square feet, and feature a back yard and a roof deck.
