LSAR Publishes Construction Study


In partnership with the Arrowhead Builders Association and the Northspan Group, LSAR commissioned a study to analyze costs associated with the development of single-family workforce housing in Duluth, Minnesota. It explores a range of factors that affect the cost of constructing new single-family homes to determine where Duluth’s costs are high relative to several comparison cities. It also investigates home renovation costs as a potential alternative to new construction. It offers a framework for next steps available to policymakers and other stakeholders who seek to develop more single-family housing units in Duluth.  It was presented to the Duluth City Council on March 12, 2018 and a public presentation and forum will be scheduled for April of 2018.  You can find the study linked below.
