Those two big-ticket projects brought in more than $270,000 in permit revenue.

A total of 193 single family dwelling units – 147 single family dwellings and 46 multi-residential units – were created in 2020. Six secondary units and nine residential apartment units were created for a total of 208 residential units. Two existing apartment building were converted to condo units, according to a Council report.

In terms of residential construction, it is the second biggest building boom in Amherstburg since at least 1996, trailing only the banner year of 2006.
