Midwood Real Estate

Plaza-Midwood was first established in 1910 as a streetcar suburb of Charlotte. The neighborhood is located approximately one mile to the northeast of Uptown in Charlotte, Plaza-Midwood is roughly bound by Hawthorne Lane to the west, The Plaza to the north, Briar Creek Road and the Charlotte Country Club to the east, and Central Avenue to the south. By 1975, the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association was established to protect and preserve the neighborhood.

Since the mid-1990s, the area has seen a dramatic comeback as reinvestment has transformed once dilapidated homes into cool, progressive urban dwellings. Its continued redevelopment has spilled over into other surrounding neighborhoods as well, and resulted in the overall renaissance of the former inner-ring suburbs of old Charlotte.

Plaza-Midwood's Historic District, regulated by the Historic District Commission, is located in the western section of the neighborhood and is maintained by residents and business operators. Today, the area is most locally known as one of Charlotte's most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods, as it continues to evolve and fill with art galleries, funky stores, and restaurants.

Just south of Central Avenue in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood is the 19 acre Veterans Park for recreation and outdoor activists. As for schooling, young residents of Plaza-Midwood primarily attend Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools—including Eastway Middle School and Shamrock Gardens Elementary School. Residents are also served by the Plaza Midwood branch of the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, located on the corner of Central Avenue and the Plaza.
