Building Permits Total Over $1.2B in St. Louis in 2018

By on January 8, 2019

From NextSTL:  $1.232B worth of building permits were issued by the city of St. Louis in 2018. This beats the previous high in recent memory of an inflation-adjusted $1.113B in 2006.

117 permits were over $1M totaling just over $1B. The SSM hospital on Grand tops the list at $210M, followed by One Hundred $91M, the Ballpark Village apartment building $59M, the Ballpark Village hotel $38M, The Foundry $32M, St. Louis Community College $26M, an office building at the SSM hospital $26M, 1501 Washington $25M, the rebuild of the Muny in Forest Park $23M, and the Ballpark Village office building $20M. Note that the building permit value is typically less than the cost of the entire project. And we shouldn’t forget the many thousands of smaller projects around the city. The Home Builders Association reports permits for 150 new construction single-family homes have been issued as of November.

    Construction for Publicly Subsidized Corporations is NOT Progress. It’s just more of the same boring narrative that “build it with tax dollars and they will come”. All of the socialist projects in the area’s history have NEVER paid off including the Arch.
