Prince George has seen a boom in building permits.

The city has already received a record-breaking $193.76 million in building permits issued this calendar year. Private sector building permits made up approximately 95% of the total value. Notably, the record number of permits has occurred despite the final two months of the year having not yet been tallied.

The highest-value permit issued was for the Student housing project at 1404 Patricia Boulevard.

With 541 permits issued in total, the city has seen a 5% increase from the previous year. An impressive 56 multi-family permits were issued, a nearly 70% increase from those issued in 2018.
