South Kensington is getting some more homes, it seems. For the last couple of years at least, there's been a sign on the one-story garage at 1417-1419 N. Howard St., advertising that the building is available for lease. Since nobody was interested in renting the building, it'll soon get torn down.
And with a large warehouse on the west side of the 1400 block of N. Howard Street, we could foresee yet another major project coming to this block in the future.
