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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Treasure Island City 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, Treasure Island City 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 Treasure Island City 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 51.7%, which is higher than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Treasure Island City Center neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and Greek ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 4.6% have Greek ancestry.
Treasure Island City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Treasure Island City Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 16.2% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.7% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Treasure Island City Center
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 50.9% 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.

the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 96.5% of neighborhoods in
FL. If a Florida retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
