The city of Yorkville saw more new homes built in 2016 than in any year since 2008, just as the building boom began to wind down.

There were 152 permits issued for new single-family homes last year, an increase of 80 percent compared to the 84 building permits for new homes issued in 2015.

The city saw 809 single-family home permits issued in 2006 at the peak of the building boom, but dropped to 42 permits in 2010 following the housing market crash.

City officials broke down the number of new homes built per subdivision in Yorkville in 2016.

The greatest number of homes were built in the Windett Ridge subdivision (42 homes), with Autumn Creek (41 homes) close behind. And 36 homes were built in the Grande Reserve subdivision.

There were 17 new homes built in the Blackberry Woods subdivision, four in the Country Hills subdivision, four in Heartland Circle, two in Cornerstone Briarwood, two on Main Street, one in Prairie Meadows and one in Rivers Edge.
