"More than 37,000 new rental units are in the works in the Dallas-Fort Worth area," reports Steve Brown.

"Unlike in previous building wave [sic], when most of the apartment activity was concentrated in a few locations, this time around rental communities are being built in almost every section of the metro area," explains Brown. "And more apartments are being built in the suburbs than in high-profile locations in Uptown and downtown Dallas."
