Built Identifies Top 20 Zip Codes for New Housing Starts in November 2023

  • Miami’s South Beach (33139) topped list of zip codes with most construction activity in November
  • Seattle’s Woodland Park/Green Lake neighborhood and three thriving Nashville zip codes rounded out top five
  • Top 20 Zip Codes accounted for more than $108 million in construction activity

Built, a software-as-a-service platform that connects lenders, owners, developers, and contractors to power smarter and faster money movement for the entire construction and real estate ecosystem while reducing risks, looked into the company’s November 2023 new single-family and multifamily housing data to uncover which areas of the country had the most construction activity.

While professionals in the construction and real estate industry typically have to wait until the third week of every month for the U.S. Census Bureau to issue its new residential construction report for the previous month, Built is leveraging the company’s proprietary platform data to provide an early snapshot of the numbers and trends.

The reason why Built is in a position to offer this preview of the housing market landscape is that it touches approximately 10–15% of U.S. construction spend through the company’s comprehensive construction loan administration platform.

In its report, the company looked at the top 20 zip codes that had the most activity and found Miami’s South Beach neighborhood (33139) had the most new single-family or multifamily construction activity in November. Seattle’s Woodland Park/Green Lake neighborhood and three thriving zip codes in the Nashville area rounded out the top five. Together, the top 20 zip codes accounted for more than $108 million in construction activity.
