YIMBY’s 2020 New Building Report, covering 2019’s numbers, showed a substantial increase in applications, with 2019’s total filings reaching 36,467. This year, the numbers have dropped somewhat, with 2020’s submitted residential units totaling 30,036. While this was a decrease, it was still substantially above the 2018 total of only 20,393 new units filed, indicating that in spite of the profound headwinds beginning in March of last year that are now seemingly abating, permitting activity remained fairly vigorous. The full report covering 1,774 new buildings and over 57 million square feet of new floor space is available in Excel format upon purchase of YIMBY’s Building Wire subscription.
