The total number of new homes being built in Ottawa is down from this time last year, but the number of single-family detached homes has increased, according to data released by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation Thursday.

"This is encouraging news, as single-detached starts are a good barometer for the strength of the new residential construction market," said CMHC senior market analyst Sandra Pérez Torres.

In contrast, townhomes and semi-detached starts were weak in June, she said.

 

The strongest areas for new homes were Nepean and Gloucester, while Goulbourn and Kanata had the fewest new homes.
