Akron is a primarily owner-occupied city. The defining characteristic of Highland Square is its large amount of apartment buildings, leading to a dense population, irregular from the rest of the city. As residential growth occurred, so did commercial development; this provides a convenient neighborhood for renters as well. Highland Square has gained a reputation for an ideal neighborhood for renters, and the rates have escalated accordingly. They are now among the highest in the area, at an average of $530 for one bedroom, $640 for two bedrooms, and $660 for three bedrooms.
