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
Did you know that the 132nd Ave SE / SE 216th St neighborhood has more
Iranian and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 2.8% have Ukrainian ancestry.
132nd Ave SE / SE 216th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the 132nd Ave SE / SE 216th St neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.0% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People

neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the 132nd Ave SE / SE 216th St neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the 132nd Ave SE / SE 216th St 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, 80.5% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
