This month was very strong for developments in Steinbach, bringing the year to a total of over $55M in building permits.
City counsellor Michael Zwaagstra says we are seeing a lot of construction, especially this month, with “nearly $10 million in building permits with about 2/3 of that residential and 1/3 commercial.”
This time last year, we were sitting at $34.5M, so we're ahead by $21M.
This month alone has seen an additional 32 dwelling units. The total for 2022 is now at 125.
Steinbach Mayor Earl Funk says we’re on a good trajectory for the rest of the year.
“We should end off the year very well," he says. "But this definitely has been a great month with just shy of $10M in value.”
