If you drive around the Phoenix area right now, it may feel like there’s an apartment boom happening. It seems like there’s a new apartment building going up on every other corner — especially in the central city.

This has led many in the development world to ask the question: Are we headed for another bubble in multifamily housing that will inevitably pop just like it did in the Great Recession?
