That’s a slight slowdown from last month’s numbers, when Denver had about 20 percent more new housing started.

Overall, the Denver metro is still in the top 15 metros when it comes to new housing. But the city has fallen from 12th to 15th place; Charlotte and Miami now have more new construction starts.
