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: Occupations
There are more people living in the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (52.0%) 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: Diversity
Did you know that the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 5.6% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
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 E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 99.2% of the real estate in the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 91.6% 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 98.8% of all neighborhoods in America.
Also of note, the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr 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 93.3% 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.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the E William Cannon Dr / Brushy Ridge Dr 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, 84.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
