Sioux Falls building permits continue on record pace.
As predicted, total construction value for the year has already topped more than half a billion dollars. From January through September, the total construction value of permits issued came in at $502,143,850.
New manufacturing accounts for $23 million and commercial construction for nearly $36 million. The number of apartments also outpaces single family homes. New residential housing totals $208.7 million.
The largest year for construction activity was in 2007 with $523 million in building permits issued. Sioux Falls is on track to break that record by the end of the year.
