YIMBY’s 2021 Q2 and Q3 Report Reveals 19,052 New Residential Unit Filings from April through September

The figures for new Department of Building project filings in New York City for the second and third quarter of 2021 are in, and the results are positively impressive. During the half-year period spanning April through September, builders have filed new permits for a total of 1,023 buildings, which range from skyline-altering skyscrapers to humble single-car garages. The total volume of these proposals adds up to 21,111,222 square feet, much of which will be residential space. Upon completion, the buildings will add a combined 19,052 residences, an impressive number even if it still falls short of the city’s dire need for new housing. The full Excel spreadsheet of all Q2 and Q3 2021 applications is available with purchase of the Building Wire subscription.
