On the other hand, overall metro-wide permitting is continuing at the same pace as it has been.
We're still doing fine, of course, but pretty clear that developers are taking a bit of a breather to see how all these upcoming in-city completions are absorbed.

Compare that to a year ago, when we had issued permits for 13,525 units (12,091 multifam) over the previous 12 months. We haven't had as slow of a year since 2014.
On the other hand, metro-wide construction continues to boom, achieving a cycle high of 60,051 units permitted over the past 12 months. Especially impressive considering the contraction in Dallas city construction.

The report highlights massive job and population growth, relatively low cost of living/business, access to space and access to talent as the big drivers for Dallas’ rise. A business-friendly environment, stable fundamentals and the gradual emergence of meaningful barriers to entry have driven Dallas through the longest economic boom in recent memory.
