Duluth’s Construction Industry Surged in 2019

Zvago Lake Superior – Opening Fall 2020

This past year will go down in the record books as one of the busiest ever for Duluth’s builders. The city witnessed nearly $253 million in construction — the second-greatest amount of work ever documented in Duluth.

Some of the large projects that kept workers bustling this past year included new facilities for the downtown medical campuses of Essentia Health and St. Luke’s; apartment buildings such as CityView Flats, Garfield Square and Zvago; a new hotel, Tru by Hilton; and an expansion at Moline Machinery.
