Midtown Real Estate
Located north of downtown and southwest of the Buckhead district, Midtown Atlanta is the second largest district in the metropolitan area, home to over 30,000 residents, with over twice that number coming in to Midtown to work each day. Encompassing much of the city’s arts and cultural community, and with dining, shopping and other attractions galore, Midtown could arguably be considered the heart of Atlanta itself, providing its inhabitants the best of the urban lifestyle.
Most of Atlanta’s arts and cultural attractions can be found in Midtown, being home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Ballet, the Woodruff Arts Center, the High Museum of Art, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden, among other attractions. Midtown is also home to the sprawling Piedmont Park, one of Atlanta’s most popular city parks; other area parks include Ansley Park, Winn Park, and Eubanks Park. Beside the wide spread of shops and restaurants peppering the area, residents will also enjoy the shops, restaurants and attractions of Atlantic Station, located just on the other side of I-75/I-85.
