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: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 neighborhood has more
Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry.
Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak South Asian languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 (23.8%) than in 97.8% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 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, 96.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 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 96.5% 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.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 99.0%, which is higher than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Finally, the real estate in the Stemmons Fwy / Route 121 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, 91.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.8% of American neighborhoods.
