Blaine Housing Year in Review

2020 Housing Wrap Up - 300x192

2020 was a year unlike any other with the COVID-19 global pandemic upending many communities across the globe. In Blaine residential development has weathered the upheaval and continued to move forward with 265 new residential units permitted and 402 new lots platted.

Blaine continued to be in the top 10 suburbs in the Twin Cities metro for housing starts, measured by permits issued. The year saw growth in the multifamily sector with the opening of a large senior apartment building, Legends of Blaine and continued construction on Cedar Green Apartments (permitted in 2019). 2020 ranked third in the past decade for platting activity in Blaine and showed the continued resurgence of townhomes.

2021 Outlook

The City expects 2021 to be a strong year for residential construction with significant lot inventory available for building due to platting activity in 2020. The City’s current pace of development is on track to meet the Metropolitan Council population forecast for 2030 of 76,700 residents, a growth rate of approximately 1,000 residents per year.
