Multifamily permitting in the 12 months ending in August 2017 increased by 10.2% from the previous 12-month period, the U.S. Census Bureau found, with six of the top 10 permitting metros issuing more apartment construction permits in the past year than in the prior one.

For the month of August alone, Dallas-metro authorities permitted more units than any other metro. New York fell to No. 2. The DFW area's apartment construction was further boosted by the introduction of Fort Worth to the top 10 for multifamily permitting.
