Lethbridge New Home Starts Down By 35 Units - Provincial Numbers Up

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:   There has been only a slight drop in the number of new home starts in Lethbridge this year compared to last.

 

As of the end of November, there has been a combined 582 single and multi-family home starts in in the city, compared to 617 by the same time last year. Multi-family home starts are almost on-par with last year's number (99 so far in 2013 compared to 108 in 2012), while most of the decline is in single family starts (483 to the end of November, compared to 509 during the first eleven months of 2012).

 

On a provincial basis, new home starts are running ahead, year-to-date, with 30,141 combined new starts to the end of November, which compares with 28,481 during the same time last year.
   
Edmonton, Red Deer and Wood Buffalo are responsible for most of the increase in new home construction, while other centres have all seen declines in new home starts. Most significant is a decline in new home construction in Calgary. Many construction crews in that city have been working on rebuilding flooded homes there and in surrounding communities.
