Residential construction continues to swell building statistics with permits issued for 13 new single family homes and 18 units

Residential construction continues to swell building statistics with permits issued for 13 new single family homes and 18 units in four rowhousing buildings last month.

Three permits were issued for each of the Ryders Ridge, Crestview and Beacon Hill subdivisions with construction values ranging from $161,250 to $239,610.

Three other permits were for new homes on 47A Avenue, west of the Catholic Church, and in the cottage area on Lakeshore Drive and on 50th Avenue. Another permit was for a manufactured home.

The total value of new home construction was just over $2.5 million.

Four rowhousing units on Rowberry Court and Reid Court in Ryders Ridge, with a total of 18 units, added $2.77 million to the month’s total of $6.05 million.

Commercial and industrial construction accounted for five permits and $396,400. Among these permits were an automotive service at 20 Cuendet Industrial Way, a restaurant at 21 Beju Industrial Way, a Physical Therapy Clinic in the medical building at the corner of 46th Street and 50th Avenue, a prefabricated office at 3 Industrial Way and a warehouse and light repair business 14 Thevenaz Industrial Way.

Other permits were issued for nine detached garages, five basement developments, two decks, two demolitions, an addition and deck, and a hot tub.

The year-to-date total for construction value was $49.33 million, down about five per cent from last year’s 11 month tally of $51.86 million.
