The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood has more
British and Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 0.5% have Yugoslav ancestry.
W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr
In the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 2.5% of employed workers living in the
W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 97.7% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 50.8% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, an extraordinary 14.4% of the residents of the
W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 90.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.5% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 90.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 87.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Finally, 85.0% of the real estate in the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
