New housing tops building starts in Sunnyside


An interior remodel of the community center and an addition to a shop building at the Sunnyside Housing Authority complex at 1500 Federal Way was among the projects the city of Sunnyside issued permits for during the month of February.

Housing construction was a big factor in new building starts within the city of Sunnyside during the month of February.

City officials issued permits for four new homes with a combined value of more than $670,000, an average value of nearly $180,000 each.

The four homes alone accounted for most of the $1.012 million in construction permitted during February. Three of the homes are being built on Bountiful Avenue by Vancouver-based Aho Construction. A fourth new home is being built on Villa Real Drive by Hatfield Construction of Prosser.

Sunnyside city coffers received just over $12,500 in fees for February construction, with almost $7,000 of that generated by the four homes.

Besides the four new residential projects, the city also issued permits for six signs that had a total estimated value of $60,000. The largest was a new sign for Sunnyside Community Hospital valued at $30,000.

City coffers netted about $1,700 in fees from the six new sign permits.

Another residential-related project that got the thumbs up in February was at the Sunnyside Housing Authority's complex on Federal Way. The project permitted there, valued at $117,728, will upgrade the community center with new carpet, paint and an air conditioning system. Also planned is an addition to a shop building.

Four existing buildings are due for alterations or additions as permitted in February. The renovations have a total valuation of $60,000, with more than $1,600 in fees generated for the city coffers.
