Key Quotes:

“Milder weather also likely boosted commercial building in January. Outlays for commercial projects are still trending higher, however, led by gains in office and hotel projects. 

“Warmer weather did not help homebuilders. Outlays for private residential construction fell 0.3% in January and outlays for single-family homes tumbled 0.7%. Multifamily construction rose 1.4% during the month and is up 12.8% year-over-year.”
