Lethbridge Still A Bee Hive Of Building Activity Compared To Other Provincial Cities

 
 
LETHBRIDGE: This city continues to lead the five-major provincial cities for housing starts, even after a drop in starts last month.

In July, there were a combined 40 single-detached and multiple family housing starts, which is a drop almost 25.9% from July of 2010.    However, total housing starts in the first seven-months of this year is 472, when there were 409 in the first seven months of last year. That equates to a 15.4% increase over last year. 

The Lethbridge situation is more than favorable when  compared to numbers in other cities.  While Red Deer saw a 90% jump in housing starts last month, that city's numbers so far this year are still down 22.8%.  Elsewhere for the first seven months, Edmonton slipped 19.6%, Calgary is down 27.6% and Medicine Hat starts dropped a whopping 49.7%
