Sioux Falls sets four building records in 2014

Posted: Updated:

 Final building numbers for 2013 show a very impressive streak for the city of Sioux Falls as records were broken in four categories.

 The city issued buildings permits for projects totaling $588.2 million.

 A total of 7,953 building permits were issued.

 A record 292 townhomes were built in the city.

 While 2,039 dwelling units were built last year.

 So what does Sioux Falls' Chief Building Official Ron Bell see for 2014? "Well it's hard to sustain this kind of construction valuation... construction within this town. its looking like next year will be perhaps as strong...maybe a little less than what it was this year."

 And the city notes the growth in 2013 was 50% commercial and 50% residential.
