Lethbridge Construction Hammers Increase In New Home Starts

 
 
LETHBRIDGE: After positive jobless numbers, another economic boost came out Friday, with housing starts up in February for many cities. Canada Mortgage and Housing reported an 18.4 per cent rise in urban starts, especially in multiple-unit dwellings such as condos and apartments.

In Lethbridge, February housing starts were up 37% from January but, mostly because of a jump in single detached home starts. There were 44 single family starts in February, compared to 33 in January.


For the first two months of the year, housing starts are up 49% over the same time last year. Of the total 101 new home starts so far,75 are single detached and 26 fall under the category of multi-unit starts.
