Sioux Falls on track for building record

 

From staff reports

It’s looking like a record finish to 2017.

After lagging behind last year’s record building year, permits through October are the strongest ever.

They totaled $624.7 million, up from $611.6 million a year ago.

The largest project in October is a building for JJ’s Wine, Spirits & Cigars at $1.7 million. A $1.5 million building permit for part of the work on the Avera on Louise project also was issued last month.

The difference in permits between 2016 and 2017 is in new residential construction, which is up $26 million, and commercial additions and renovations, which are up $25 million.

Permits have been issued for 682 single-family houses so far this year, which is 49 more than the same time last year. Apartment construction also has picked up some, with permits for 1,039 units issued, compared with 1,423 for the same time last year.

The annual record set in 2016 is $701.9 million.
