Manteca issued permits for the building of 362 housing units in 2016.

Of those, 341 were single family homes including 326 tract homes being purchased, 11 tract model homes and 4 custom homes. Another four permits were issued for four smaller complexes of multiple-family dwellings for 18 units overall.

Overall Manteca approved 936 building permits for work valued at over $100.7 million. Between residential and commercial construction the city added 1,234,000 square feet of new buildings or the equivalent of space equal to 10.6 Manteca target stores.

The year 2017 is already shaping up to potentially see as much as a doubling of the overall  construction value.

uCenterPoint plans to break ground in the coming months on a 404,657-square-foot concrete tilt-up industrial warehouse that for 5.11 Tactical at the business park bordered by Airport Way on the east and Roth Road on the north in northwest Manteca.  The plan for Tactical 5.11 also calls for a possible 134,500 square foot addition at a later date.

uCenterPoint is also pushing to break ground on a spec building or for a client that they have yet to disclose.  The 1,199,997-square-foot building is being proposed in two phases on a 63.29-acre parcel. The first phase will consist of 551,475 square feet.

uPlans are at city hall for review to build a 150-unit apartment complex between Paseo Villas and Juniper Apartments along Atherton Drive.

uAt least three small commercial projects are expected to break ground with at least two of them containing gas stations and convenience stores.

uDevelopers surveyed by the Bulletin anticipate building between 400 and 500 new single family homes this year.

There were two commercial permits  issued  in 2016— including one for the new Sizzler restaurant  at Airport Way and Daniels Street that is nearing completion — that had a basic building construction value of $973,000. The City of Manteca also broke ground on a 2,800-square-foot evidence building for the Manteca Police Department at a cost of $1.1 million.

New housing accounted for $80 million worth of work or 80 percent of all construction in 2016.

The single family homes permits were issued for averaged 3,273 square feet of living space. Eight years prior in 2008 when the new housing market hit bottom the first three months of that year saw the typical new home built in Manteca come in at 2,099 square feet. That’s more than a 50 percent increase in size.

Among the other categories of permits issued in Manteca during 2016 were:

u111 permits for solar power panels installed at homes with a combined value of $2.076 million.

u94 permits to replace residential heating and air conditioning systems valued at $868,000.

u20 permits for swimming pools and spas valued at $730,454.

u52 permits for residential re-roofing projects valued at $562,000.
