17th Ward leads city in building permits in FY2014

Almost always first or second in the city for the dollar volume of building permits, the 17th ward achieved new heights when in the city’s 2014 fiscal year (ending in June) it racked up applications for nearly half of all the construction for the entire city.  Over the years the building permit data has been something I’ve monitored.  I think it serves as a good indicator of how much people want to live and do business within the ward.  For detailed building permit data by neighborhood or ward check out these documents: Building Permits FY 2014, Building Permits FY 2015 ytd.
