“It is in Midtown that Atlanta feels most like a real city…. Home to the arts, a great urban park and some of Atlanta’s best restaurants, the district has a vitality that is at once hip and sophisticated.”
– Kevin Sack, “Winter Day Out in Atlanta,” The New York Times
Midtown’s pedestrian-oriented, amenity-rich community provides a dynamic environment for some of Atlanta’s largest employers and most respected companies. While major corporations call Midtown home, being here provides important advantages for small businesses too.
It’s about access. Access to nationally-leading educational and research institutions. Access to a highly skilled labor market. Access to robust transportation options and infrastructure that make getting here and getting around easy. And the Midtown Alliance, the organization actively committed to building and maintaining a superior quality of life and making Midtown a location of choice for you and your employees. Guided by a visionary master plan and backed by the investment of the Midtown Improvement District, Midtown Alliance has leveraged more than $400 million in public and private funds to enhance the public environment and support Midtown’s continued growth as Atlanta’s premier urban center.

Central to the Midtown shopping experience is the Midtown Mile, which envisions a street-level mix of flagship national brands, local boutiques and restaurants spanning 14 consecutive blocks on Peachtree Street. With 750,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space in place and the potential to add another 250,000 when fully built-out, the Midtown Mile is coming to life.
Midtown has all the fundamentals in place to create an authentic urban retail experience on par with the world’s best shopping streets: miles of walkable, tree-lined sidewalks, a rapidly expanding residential base, a diverse daytime population of workers and students, and a vibrant arts and culture scene attracting more than 6 million visitors each year. With unique retailers you will find nowhere else in Atlanta, like CB2, EcoDenizen and ROC Republic of Couture (opening May 2013), Midtown’s strong trade area demographics target young, hip, urban shoppers who want affordable luxury.
Widely regarded as one of Atlanta’s top dining destinations, patrons in Midtown can choose from more than 150 restaurants concentrated within the one-square-mile central Midtown district. Midtown benefits from a wealth of dining options, all of which attest to the rich diversity of Midtown’s established foodie culture and support for a thriving restaurant scene.
