Atlanta Continues to See Rise in Residential Construction

by Chip Bell

Continuing its slow return to prominence, residential construction is gaining ground in many metropolitan areas in the U.S. Unfortunately, not everyone did so well in April.

The Atlanta area has seen its fair share of rough residential construction months, but April 2014 won’t be counted among them. According to numbers provided by McGraw-Hill, residential construction in Atlanta is already outpacing 2013.

Last April, total residential construction projects were valued at approximately $376 million, making Atlanta a relatively active market in regards to new construction. While it’s true Atlanta remains near the middle of the residential construction spectrum when compared to its metropolitan peers, growth since 2013 has helped to increase the amount of construction money going into Atlanta by more than $10 million year-to-year.
