A review of the the value of building permits issued in 2013 shows a 27% increase over last year through Dec 16th. In 2013 through Dec. 16, the value of the 1,481 permits issued was $203.5 million compared to the 1,234 permits valued at $148 million last year. For perspective, in peak year 2007, 2,077 building permits were issued at a value of $372 million. While most of the activity in 2013 appears to be for smaller projects – remodels and improvements on existing properties, large commercial building projects have been the main driver of the higher valuatiuon numbers: an $18 million permit for the mixed use project at the corner of Hyman and Hunter Streets and the $14 million permit for the Aspen Art Museum.
