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: People
The Columbus City Center neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.9% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Columbus City Center neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (74.3%) than found in
98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the Columbus City Center neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.4%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.5%
of the adult residents in the Columbus City Center neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Columbus City Center neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.7%, which is higher than 99.4% 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.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Columbus City Center neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 77.9% 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 97.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Columbus City Center 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 83.5% 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.
