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: Diversity
Did you know that the Glenmoor Dr / Village Blvd neighborhood has more
Haitian and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Haitian ancestry and 4.0% have Jamaican ancestry.
Glenmoor Dr / Village Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Glenmoor Dr / Village Blvd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
With more than 2.0% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Glenmoor Dr / Village Blvd is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the Glenmoor Dr / Village Blvd 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, 74.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.4% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Glenmoor Dr / Village 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 32.9%, which is higher than 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Glenmoor Dr / Village 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, 82.4% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
