Building permits continue at a record pace for Sioux Falls.
The value of construction permits for the city through August reached $447 million. 5,295 permits were issued through the end of August. Millions of dollars in permits for new hotels, along with school construction, contributed to the rise.
There are more than 500 new homes going up, but apartments really fueled the pace with 848 multi-family units being built in the city through August.
