When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Key Biscayne Village Center neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Key Biscayne Village Center is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Key Biscayne Village Center neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 52.3%, which is higher than 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Key Biscayne Village Center 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.
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 1.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Key Biscayne Village Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Key Biscayne Village Center also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the Key Biscayne
Village Center neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Also, some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 42.6% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
Finally, if you're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the Key Biscayne Village Center
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 96.7% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Key Biscayne Village Center
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Key Biscayne Village Center neighborhood has more
Cuban and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 18.9% have South American ancestry.
Key Biscayne Village Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 62.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 72.0% of the workforce
in the Key Biscayne Village Center neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 98.6% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
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 Key Biscayne Village Center
What is interesting to note, is that the Key Biscayne Village Center
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(48.8%) than are found in 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
