Housing Construction News Size

St. Charles County is reporting robust mid-year totals for 2022 housing and commercial construction permits that pace ahead of 2021 numbers. 

“Through July of this year, housing and commercial construction in St. Charles County continues to exceed year-to-date numbers in 2021,” says Director of Community Development Mike Hurlbert. “The growth of the multi-family sector has pushed the overall residential permit numbers to stay well ahead of 2021. With 1,546 combined residential units so far this year, we are now 271 units ahead of totals from this same timeframe last year—just over a 21 percent increase.”

O’Fallon led the region in single-family construction with 197 permits, and the City of St. Peters led in multi-family construction with 304 units. New housing construction costs through May 2022 was estimated at more than $355 million.
