Midtown is on the move. As one of Atlanta’s most popular neighborhoods, Midtown and Piedmont Park are currently on the “Best Places to Live in Atlanta” list. Nestled between Downtown and Buckhead, Midtown is one of Atlanta’s largest neighborhoods, as well as the second-largest business district.
Midtown has the city’s highest walkability score, bike score, and pedestrian count anywhere other than the Georgia Tech campus on the West Side. There are ample sidewalks and MARTA transit options in addition to the streets. The goal is not to do away with traffic, but to “customize mobility and transportation options” in the area. It seems to be working, as a new city mega-developer is planning a full-time “mobility concierge” to work with future tenants and guests.
Known as the “Heart of the Arts,” the Midtown neighborhood is home to the well-known Midtown Mile — a large array of boutique shops, eateries and other attractions that run along Peachtree Street. Nearby, Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s premier green space, featuring a thriving Farmers Market each weekend. Many of the city’s favorite celebrations take place here, and residents and tourists alike flock to the Botanical Gardens, High Museum of Art, and multitude nightlife options. To top it off, the view of the city skyline is absolutely phenomenal.
