New housing start, roofing projects top November building permits issued by Sunnyside


The finishing touches are being applied to a new 1,374 square-foot single family home in the Harvest Village development. It was one of 29 projects receiving permits from Sunnyside building officials during the month of November.

Nearly half of the 29 new projects issued permits in Sunnyside last month were for new roofs.

There were 14 roofing projects greenlighted here in November with a combined valuation of nearly $170,000.

Six of the new roofs were for residential buildings operated by the Sunnyside Housing Authority. They had a combined valuation of about $65,000 and were for housing developments the agency runs on North Avenue, Rouse Road and Bagley Drive.

The single highest valued roofing project given the go-ahead in November was for the Sunnyside Library at an estimated valuation of $43,029.

There was one new housing start given the thumbs up by city staff last month, a one-story home valued at $151,131 at 1621 S. 13 St.

The home, part of Aho Construction's Harvest Village development, resulted in $2,124 in fees paid to the city of Sunnyside.

Overall, the 29 projects permitted last month had a combined valuation of $377,424 and generated $6,703 in fees for Sunnyside city coffers.

The total valuation of Sunnyside's new building starts in November was more than four times higher than October's, which was only $93,198.

In other good news for the city of Sunnyside, one of the re-roofs last month was for a commercial building at 61 E. Allen Rd.

In addition, there were four other commercial-related construction projects that began in Sunnyside during the month of November with a combined valuation of $24,000.

One involved improvements by Verizon at 2680 E. Yakima Valley Highway #G.

Another commercial-related project last month was the addition of a partition wall in the dining area of the China Grove restaurant at 3210 Picard Place.

Also last month, Sunnyside greenlighted the placement of a portable commercial office at 206 N. First St., as well as exterior rock siding at Home Stretch Espresso at 2890 Allen Rd.
