LONGVIEW - It was an up-and-down year for Longview construction, an analysis of city data show. Builders started more Longview projects in 2013, but their total value was down from a year earlier.

Residential and commercial remodeling took a hit that was balanced by remodeling and new construction of apartments.

Excluding new apartment construction, the City of Longview issued 34 permits for new commercial construction inside the city with a total value of about $83.6 million, up from 24 permits worth $65.3 million in 2012.

In new apartment construction — anything four-plex or higher — there were 53 new construction commercial permits with a value of almost $108.5 million, up from 45 permits at $76.9 million in 2012.
