Santa Fe College /

39th Ave

The area immediately surrounding Santa Fe College is mostly commercial, with a few apartment complexes, fast food restaurants, corporate parks, and healthcare facilities sprinkled around it. Less than a mile in either direction, however, there are dozens of neighborhoods, built anywhere from the 1970s through today. Newer construction is hard to find, though, and the inventory is often limited to homes built in the 1980s and 90s. Due to 39th Avenue’s width and amount of traffic, this area feels less residential and more commercial, despite the many residential areas. Like Jonesville, however, a lot of the area is showing signs of unyielding growth and promises to continue to develop toward the west, especially given Santa Fe College’s popularity and rank as the top community college in America.
