2014 was a very good year for new construction in Atlanta, according to the latest stats.
Total residential construction spending in the Atlanta area was $5.086 billion in 2014, an 18 percent increase from 2013, according to new numbers from Dodge Data & Analytics.
That was in addition to Atlanta’s strong December construction market, which saw activity rise from $293 million in Dec. 2013 to $340 million in 2014, a 16 percent increase.
The size of Atlanta’s construction market remains relatively small – at $5.086 billion, for instance, it’s just over half of Houston’s booming $9.841 billion – but an 18 percent increase is no small achievement, and it will be very interesting to see how the market builds on those numbers in 2015.
