New single-family building permits have continued to slide for several parts of North Texas, but Denton is bucking the trend. Building permits were up 46% year-over-year for the 10 month period ending in October, according to data compiled by Addison-based Tomlin Investments, which tracks new home construction north of Dallas-Fort Worth. The city has posted 1097 single-family building permits so far this year, compared to 753 during the same period last year. In most northern municipalities, new building permits are down compared to last year.
