In September 2020, YIMBY reported that permits had been filed for a three-story single-family rowhouse at 2545 North Howard Street in West Kensington. Since that time, construction has been completed on the four-bedroom, three-bathroom project, and today we look at the end result. The structure replaces a vacant lot on the east side of the block between West Cumberland and West Huntingdon streets. According to permits, the building spans 2,000 square feet (though real estate listings list the property at 2,520 square feet, a figure that likely also includes the basement) and features a roof deck. Permit documents list Paul Dietz III as the architect and Gezim Kupa as the contractor.
