HOUSTON—Developers are experiencing continued demand with upward rent pressure in cities with job growth, especially on the coasts and in the Sunbelt. More than 1 million new apartments have been built across the country since 2015, the most in 30 years. Multifamily construction starts continue to be unusually high, at 452,000 units, up 14% in March, the largest seasonally adjusted rate since October 2016, according to Census Bureau reports.
