The money value of construction activity throughout the city of Belleville so far this year is running ahead of the figures for 2017.
From the first of January up to the end of September construction figures sit at $97.3 million.
This is $7.5 million more than for the same period in 2017.
And September this year was way ahead of the same month last year.
Chief Building Official Ted Marecak tells Quinte News that’s because of the permit issued for the Arabella retirement residence at 24 Dundas Street West.
In August, Belleville recorded the Hastings County Home for Good apartment building on Sidney Street, valued at $20 million.
New housing builds so far this year sit at $9 million.
Belleville has taken in just over $1 million in permit fees so far this year.
