Multifamily deliveries in Dallas totaled 9,829 units in the first half of 2022, or 1.2 percent of total stock. This represents a 27.7 percent decrease from the same period last year, when 13,587 units came online. Meanwhile, another 49,670 units were underway in the metro as of June. According to Yardi Matrix data, Dallas has the second-largest under-construction pipeline in Texas, right after Austin.

In recent years, Texas has been benefitting from strong in-migration, company expansions and relocations, which translates into steady economic growth. As a result, demand for housing skyrocketed. ZOM Living‘s 13-building, 378-unit Mezzo Dallas project in Aubrey, Texas, was one of the largest multifamily deliveries in the metro.
