County Construction Starts Declined 8 Percent in 2017’s First Half

The overall value of San Diego County’s construction starts declined 8 percent from a year ago in the first half of 2017, despite a 14 percent increase in new residential projects, according to the latest monthly numbers from research firm Dodge Data & Analytics.

Based on the value of building permits pulled in the January-to-June period, the local region saw the start of non-residential and residential projects with a total value of nearly $1.8 billion. The rise in residential projects, to $1.06 billion, was offset by a 28 percent decline in non-residential projects, to $735.1 million.

Residential projects include single- and multi-family housing, while the non-residential category covers office, industrial, retail, education, government and other types of non-housing construction.

Dodge Data figures indicate that both categories had a rough June, with overall values declining 31 percent from a year ago, to a total of just over $269.9 million. The residential category was down 17 percent for the month, at $148.7 million, while the non-residential category dropped 43 percent, to just under $121.3 million.
