ADB construction services director Daniel Rossi said private sector dwellings excluding houses drove the decline, falling -34.9 per cent which was an 11-year low for apartment buildings.“While minor effects of COVID-19 are apparent in the headline Building Approvals results, the fall in apartment approvals was broadly expected prior to the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.

We do expect further weakness from here. Rolling annual approvals are now running at 173k, down from 192k a year ago and a peak of 243k in August 2016.”“Border closures leading to lower net overseas migration and a general level of uncertainty is reducing the demand for housing. We expect new housing construction to fall 25 per cent in 2020.”The largest falls has been in multi‑unit approvals for four story buildings or higher, CBA said, with shorter building approvals holding up better.

Durant reportedly wants to join the Knicks, possibly along with Kyrie Irving (the two have met to discuss their future plans). However, Stephen A. Smith reported this week that Knicks owner James Dolan is urging team executives to use “caution” regarding Durant’s Achilles condition, and wants to see test results and his prognosis.
