Hooray for Midtown ATL!

We're recognized as one of the Great Neighborhoods in America.

Our neighborhood has been named to the American Planning Association’s (APA) 2016 list of Great Places in America. Midtown Atlanta is one of only five neighborhoods nationally to receive this honor.

About the Award

Honorees set the standard for creating a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for the future.

In the heart of it all, a shared win for all.
