Is known for its great location, diversity, and strong sense of community. The neighborhood is due east of Uptown and the original city limits. Elizabeth and Chantilly border to the south; Uptown is to the west; Villa Heights and NoDA are to the north.
Midwood is known as the most diverse of the original street car suburbs of Charlotte and for many reasons; it has the most individual original developments that form what is the present neighborhood; these developments began as early as other “streetcar subdivisions,” in the early 1900s, yet others were built as late as 1950’s; within these varying subdivisions, and even on the same block homes vary in age and size tremendously. Plaza Midwood has many contributing historic structures and about 20% of the neighborhood is protected and designated as a Local Historic District.
The neighborhood not only offers Charlotteans a wide variety of housing, but also an array of the best dining and shopping in the city. It is home to the Charlotte Country Club and the Thirsty Beaver Saloon.
