Nearly 14,000 new homes have been built in Phoenix this year
Just a clarification question: When you talk about Denver and Riverside numbers of new homes this year, it's not clear (to me, at least) which "Riverside"/state you are referring to. There are many towns named Riverside, including one near me which seems to have a lot of housing construction happening (though I don't know the numbers).
The Guardian article read like a science fiction short story.
Does make you wonder - if these pr entities actually have a working brain cell, doesnt it?
