It's a Boomlet

San Francisco is in the midst of something of a building boom, at least compared to its historical norms, but its boom pales in comparison to those taking place in areas like New York and Boston. In 2015 there has been 69% more construction permit activity than the metro area's historical norm, but that was only the sixth-highest in the country. In the New York metro area, construction is currently 255% percent higher than it has generally been in the past. Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Newark, NJ are also building at rates well higher than their norms. [Trulia]
