The number of building permits issued for two- and more dwelling buildings increased by 33%, and the planned floor area of these buildings, which amounted to 7,068 m2 (in May 2,923 m2), also increased. The planned floor area of two- and more dwelling buildings increased mainly due to the planned construction of three larger three- and more dwelling buildings.
