Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 52.0%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (27.1%).

If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Honolulu, the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave 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 99.5% 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.

In addition, the real estate in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave 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, 99.0% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.9% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave 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 52.0%, which is higher than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Also of note, if you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 96.5% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 26,351 people per square mile living here.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

With 3.3% of employed workers living in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave 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, there are more people living in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (55.6%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave choose to walk to work each day (24.7%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood could be a good choice.

Also, would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 5.6% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Finally, our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work (16.1% ride the bus) than 95.7% of all American neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to consider.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.2% 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 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled in college than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With 14.1% of the population here attending college, this is very much a college-focused neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. 36.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood has more Iranian and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 4.1% have Portuguese ancestry.

Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 10.3% 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 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Kalakaua Ave / Kapahulu Ave neighborhood in Honolulu are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 68.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 34.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 80.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden.
