The HBA report shows ytd (through the end of March) there have been 492 single-family building permits issued in the St. Louis area, an increase of almost 12 percent from this same time last year when the year to date total was 440.

In spite of the increases in permit activity, the entire St Louis area, with the exception of Franklin County, is still down significantly from 2010 with the overall decline coming in at almost 43 percent.
