New house, roof repairs lead construction starts in Sunnyside last month


The largest of seven roofing projects permitted by the city of Sunnyside last month was for this apartment complex, Country Lane Apartment Homes, at 910 E. Harrison Ave.

In what was otherwise a slow month for new building starts in Sunnyside, the city did see construction begin on a new single family home and several roof repairs during February.

The new home, valued at just under $240,000, accounted for more than half of the total new valuation of $436,812 in new construction permitted last month.

The four-bedroom house in the 1300 block of Asparagus Lane also resulted in a little more than $2,900 paid in permit fees. That represents nearly half of the almost $6,800 Sunnyside city coffers received last month in permit fees.

As for roof repairs, February windstorms played a part in newly permitted roofing projects. All told, city officials gave the green light on seven roof repairs last month, accounting for more than a quarter of the 26 construction projects permitted last month.

The seven roofing projects had a total combined valuation of just over $67,000.

By far the biggest roof job was a re-roof of an apartment complex in the 900 block of East Harrison Avenue. That project has a valuation of $46,000 and generated $608 in permit fees.

Another sizeable roofing project involved re-roofing the O'Reilly Auto Parts store in the 2100 block of East Edison Avenue. The project has a valuation of $15,000 and netted $269 in permit fees for Sunnyside city coffers.

For the month of February, Sunnyside city officials issued a total of 36 permits.

Building officials in the city also conducted 204 inspections last month, including 138 related to buildings, 28 plumbing inspections and 22 mechanical inspections.
