Top Millennial Neighborhoods in Ohio Include Downtown & Near East Side
The largest generation in the U.S. — the Millennial cohort, currently aged between 22 and 37 — are moving into urban neighborhoods in large numbers, according to a new report compiled by RentCafe.com. Data was gathered on population trends in major cities across the U.S. between 2011 and 2016, to find which zip codes saw the biggest increases in these young residents, and urban zip codes topped the charts in most cities and states across the nation.
“The downtown areas of Denver, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Columbus, Charlotte, and Indianapolis emerge as overwhelming millennial-favorites,” states RentCafe senior marketing writer Nadia Balint. “Millennials make up the majority population in all of the ZIP codes in the top 18 of the top 20 zip codes, with the largest shares of millennials in or near downtowns.”
In Ohio, Columbus claims three zip codes in the top 10 list. Number one on the list is 43205 (which includes Olde Towne East, Franklin Park, Old Oaks and Driving Park), number five on the list is 43215 (Downtown, East Franklinton, The Brewery District, and the southern half of The Short North), and seventh on the list is 43203 (King-Lincoln, Mount Vernon and Woodland Park).
Across the country, neighborhoods that saw the highest growth in their Millennial populations include Downtown Los Angeles, Battery Park City and Lincoln Square in Manhattan, and Kerns and Laurelhurst near Downtown Portland.
