The county issued 522 building permits for 1,342 housing units last year, while 680 certificates of occupancy were issued for 1,143 housing units.
That represents the most units given building permits in one year since 2002, when 1,720 units were given permits, and the second most units given building permits in one year in the last 30 years.
Such included construction projects include Berkmar Landing Apartments and Presidio Apartments - two of Breeden Construction's in-progress projects.
