THE HEART OF HEARTS
Midtown atlanta real estate
Midtown Atlanta has that big city look with that familiar neighborhood feel. Crowds dotting the streets of Midtown can be described as anything from trendy, eclectic, liberal, gay-friendly, to even dog-friendly. The buildings themselves are as diverse as the people inhabiting them; in Midtown, it’s not uncommon to see century-old Victorian constructions, modern glass highrises and luxury condos for sale, and everything in between. The neighborhood is also home to some of the most innovative cultural and artistic institutions, giving residents a refreshing dose of contemporary Atlantan culture. The things to do and see in Midtown are known for their accessibility: the surprising ease at which you can navigate the neighborhood streets on foot helps Midtown rank high in real estate appeal and livability.

midtown atlanta: The heart of arts
From boutique galleries to a multi-facility arts center, Midtown Atlantan is a place that the city’s thriving arts scene fondly calls home. It’s called the “Heart of the Arts” for a reason and artists and art lovers alike are drawn to this place. The campus-like Woodruff Arts Center on Peachtree Street is a busy hub for both visual and performing arts. Here you’ll find the widely-acclaimed High Museum of Art(or simply The High) with some of the best collections of classic and contemporary art not only in Georgia, but in the South. While at the Center you can also watch and hear the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra play at the Atlanta Symphony Hall or catch a performance on stage at the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre. Just across the street is the MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta), which houses a fine collection of all things design, from the worlds of architectural, industrial, fashion, and graphic design. Further down Peachtree, close to Midtown’s southern border stands the famed Fox Theatre, with its long history of Broadway shows and landmark concerts.
navigating midtown atlanta
Midtown has a very walkable environment, so navigating between the neighborhood’s array of shopping, dining and nightlife options will always be an adventure of sorts. You’ll find many local shops, boutiques and big-name retailers in line with the neighborhood’s eclectic urban vibes. Those looking for their retail and culinary fixes can visit stores that line the wide sidewalks of Midtown Mile, which stretches across 14 consecutive blocks on Peachtree Street, between North Ave and 15th St NE. Those who stay out long enough will find that Midtown keeps very much awake into the night with bars, nightclubs, live music venues, and comedy and improv clubs, many of which can be found around Crescent Ave.
Whether you consider yourself a foodie, an epicure, a gourmand or a gastronome, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival hosted annually at the Loews Atlanta Hotel and vicinity is a good reason to indulge in all your culinary proclivities. The historic 189-acre Piedmont Park is one of the centerpieces of Midtown, an urban green space that acts as the stomping grounds for community cultural and recreational activities. Crowd-drawing events like the annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival, Music Midtown festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Atlanta Pride Festival, the weekly Green Market and plenty more are held at the park. Paying a visit to the historic Sears, Roebuck & Co. building just south in the Old Fourth Ward district, you’ll find Ponce City Market, a shining example of the city’s widespread revitalization efforts.
