The Dallas Morning News quotes Robert A. Murray, chief economist  for Dodge Data & Analytics, saying “So far in 2019, multifamily housing has settled back from last year’s robust amount, although this year’s volume can still be regarded as healthy by recent standards, as for commercial building, office construction starts in 2019 have seen modest expansion compared to last year, helped by groundbreaking for large office projects and the support coming from the continued strength of data center projects.”
