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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
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 98.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 52.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.7% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
18.4% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood has more
French and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have French ancestry and 0.9% have Brazilian ancestry.
W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 90.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 98.6% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, 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, 90.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, 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 88.9% 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.
Finally, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the W 6th Ave / Arbutus Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 83.4%, which is higher than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
