KC metro ranked in top 25 for multi unit delivery over a year Q3-Q3 (4700 units) and about 17th for Q3 2020 itself (1500 units). Absorption is healthy too.

KC ranked top 20 for commercial/multifamily construction starts as well first half of 2020. Second half report should come out this month or so.

Not surprising as construction jobs also show significantly up, around 7% lately, where most of US is down even some hot markets.

Here is a fairly worthless clickbait ranking of the best places to live in 2021 where KC came in number 8.

CBRE compiled a Development Opportunity Index and KC doesn't stand out compared to coasts/south but in top 3 for Midwest...

KC still in top 20 for construction starts for 2020 full year, 2nd in Midwest. Is actually up 20% for 2020 where US avg is down 20%. KC has been fairly consistent in top 20 last 5+ years.

^ and this doesn't really reflect cost of construction. Building in an expensive coastal city has to cost significantly more per unit than here.

SF Bay Area plummeting below KC is a surprise, Minneapolis too.

Is this total number of projects? I would be interested to see change in sqft under construction or total cost under construction.

As title says, it's 'starts" for commercial and multi-family buildings in millions of dollars, doesn't include single family home construction. And apparently not civil/fed infrastructure projects.

I think that 'starts' means broke ground within the year, not permits pulled.

Missouri made the top 10 (7th place) on Uhaul's 2020 migration list. Ohio was the only higher Midwestern state (if you consider it to be one).
