Oshawa marks rapid growth in 2010

OSHAWA, Ont. – There is a lot to brag about just east of Toronto.

Officials in Oshawa said over 1,600 building permits were issued in 2010 valued near $300 million, making it the second highest year in the city’s history for residential growth.

Residential year-end construction last year was worth $71 million more than in 2009, which according to the city’s chief building official is the largest amount since 2006.

Some of last year’s big ticket projects included an $18 million retirement home, a new $13 million Durham College building, and another $13 million renovation project, converting a downtown building into part of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
