Denver Development Services’ office is issuing more permits and site-development plans than a year ago, a sign that new construction and basic home-improvement projects are on the upswing. Ron Throupe, a real-estate professor at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, said the apartment market is driving the growth. “Apartments are getting red-hot,” Throupe said. “Apartments have been getting warmer every quarter, and it’s because vacancy rates are quite low.”
