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 Arlington,
the NE Green Oaks Blvd / Winding Hollow Ln neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the NE Green Oaks Blvd / Winding Hollow Ln neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the NE Green Oaks Blvd / Winding Hollow Ln 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, 89.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, the real estate in the NE Green Oaks Blvd / Winding Hollow Ln 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.

Also of note, the NE Green Oaks Blvd / Winding Hollow Ln 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.
