Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Aiea,
the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St neighborhood has more
Asian and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 42.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 3.6% have Portuguese ancestry.
Uao Pl / Kaonohi St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 4.0% of employed workers living in the
Uao Pl / Kaonohi St 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 government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 17.8% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.9% 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
98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Uao Pl / Kaonohi St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 39,231 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.0% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St 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, 95.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 89.4% 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 98.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the Uao Pl / Kaonohi St 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 84.4% 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.
