St. Charles County leads Missouri portion of metro in homebuilding

Homebuilding activity continues to pick up pace in St. Charles County, where more single-family housing permits were issued for the first five months of 2015 than anywhere else in the Missouri portion of the St. Louis region.

Statistics compiled by the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri show that 246 single-family housing permits were issued in May in St. Charles County. The total was the highest for one month for the county since at least 2008, according to HBA records.

In all, 844 single-family housing permits have been issued in St. Charles County for the year through May, more than the 762 issued for the same period last year and the 727 issued for the first five months of 2013. More than twice as many single-family permits were issued in St. Charles County for the first five months of 2015 than in St. Louis County, which issued just 373.

Likewise, St. Charles county has surpassed the number of home building permits issued in other nearby counties and in St. Louis City. During the first five months of 2015, 209 single-family housing permits were issued in Jefferson County, 120 were issued for the same period in Franklin County, 33 were issued in Lincoln County, 34 were issued in Warren County and 42 were issued in the city of St. Louis.

Additionally, more multi-family housing permits for apartments and condominiums have been issued through May in St. Charles County than in its nearby neighbors.

Thirty-five multi-family permits have been issued to date in the city of St. Louis, and none have been issued through May in St. Louis, Jefferson, Frankllin, Lincoln and Warren counties.
