Construction Underway at 2500 North Mascher Street in West Kensington

Last October, YIMBY shared that permits were issued for a four-story, 14-unit residential building at 2500 North Mascher Street in West Kensington. Philadelphia YIMBY’s recent site visit has revealed that, more than half a year later, construction is well underway on the project, which replaces a vacant lot at the northwest corner of North Mascher and West Cumberland streets. Designed by KCA Design Associates, the structure rises from a 2,867-square-foot footprint and spans 14,337 square feet, which averages to just over 1,000 square feet per apartment. The development will feature a cellar, full sprinkling, and roof decks, which promise sweeping skyline vistas due to the building’s prominence. Permits list LNHA New Homes as the contractor and a construction cost of $1.5 million.
