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 SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd 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, SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd 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.
One of the notable things about SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd 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 42.2%, which is higher than 97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd 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, 89.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 77.4% 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 96.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
Finally, the SE Saint Lucie Blvd / SE Old Saint Lucie Blvd 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 81.7% 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.
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: 61.4%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.3% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals

NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.2% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Florida, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion

this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Florida.
