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

High Mesa Dr / Horizon Ridge Pky is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily

than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the High Mesa Dr / Horizon Ridge Pky neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (49.8%) 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: Real Estate
In addition, the High Mesa Dr / Horizon Ridge Pky 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 94.1% 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.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the High Mesa Dr / Horizon Ridge Pky 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, 93.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
