BuildZoom recently published an article on Rising Construction Activity. What I found interesting was that Omaha has had the most consistent growth since 2011.
The article compared cities such as Atlanta, Durham, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle and Omaha. For the years 2011, 2012 and 2013, Omaha consistently outpaced the other cities listed in the survey.
As set froth in the article, in 2011, Omaha issued nearly 35,000 building permits, nearly 40,000 in 2012 and over 50,000 in 2013.
This is tremendous growth for any city, and it’s heartening to see that Omaha in particular is doing so well.
