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 Kalauao 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, Kalauao 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, the real estate in the Kalauao 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, 67.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 95.3% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Kalauao neighborhood has more
Asian and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 51.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 2.4% have Portuguese ancestry.
Kalauao is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 14.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 3.7% of employed workers living in the
Kalauao neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.6% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, the Kalauao neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 95.0% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Kalauao neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
21.2% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
