Midtown Phoenix

Midtown Phoenix is popular with residents who want to live close to downtown. This is urban lifestyle at its finest with small, eclectic neighborhoods with homes that are furthest from cookie cutter as can be. 

Neighborhoods with brick houses and block houses on streets lined with palm and big shade trees are common. Many older homes are renovated. New homes with historic looks are going up on vacant lots. New condos with retro or brick facades can be found in the area. Bigger houses with higher prices are located on the northern end and around the Phoenix Country Club. New developments can be found along light rail.

Midtown’s area stretches from Culver Street to McDowell Rd including Margaret T. Hance Park (Central Ave to 3rd St); from McDowell Rd to Thomas Rd (1st Ave to 3rd St); and from Thomas Road to Indian School Road (3rd St to 3rd Ave). This neighborhood contains a variety of cultural and performing arts venues, excellent public transportation, accessible green spaces and well-preserved historic residential neighborhoods, as well as business and architectural support of our urban lifestyle.

Living In Midtown Phoenix

Expect an urban lifestyle with smaller eclectic neighborhoods and a variety of home designs. Houses looks different block by block and typically aren’t stucco. New, hip and ethnic restaurants can be found in this area that draws families, Baby Boomers, young professionals and college students. Jobs are plenty in this centrally located area. Busy streets are the norm on weekdays as people commute to jobs. Light rail runs through the middle of this neighborhood.

Going out Midtown

Phoenix’s central corridor is a hip area bursting with restaurants, coffee shops and bistros perfect for destination dining or post-work noshing. Big names and world-class culinary talent abounds with Postino Central, Pane Bianco, the Clever Koi, St. Francis and plenty more

Midtown Outdoors

This area has benefited from the city’s FitPHX program, with a weekly Monday night “Meet Me Downtown Phoenix” program that includes a supported 3-mile walk/run course and indoor fitness classes during the summer heat and it’s all free. The city’s Grid Bike Share program makes it possible to rent a bike and ride throughout this area, dropping it off at a Grid kiosk or locking it up and taking it off the clock during stops. And the Grand Canal Trail slices just to the northeast of the neighborhoods, offering paved and dirt trails for running, walking or bicycling. South Mountain Park, with cycling, mountain biking, hiking and more is just a short drive south on Central Avenue.

Melrose

The Melrose area is made up of a few historic neighborhoods, including Campus Vista, Woodlea and Pierson Place. Melrose is a district with eclectic shops and restaurants in the middle. Phoenix College and St. Joseph’s Hospital are on the southern end.

North Central

North Central is the most upscale area in Midtown, and it overlaps the Uptown neighborhood. It’s also the second priciest neighborhood in Phoenix. Mansions, large and mid-size ranch houses and smaller historic homes can be found here as well. The area is home to several popular local restaurants.

Midtown Transportation

Light rail runs through the middle of Midtown. Many rail stops are near large job hubs. The central Phoenix area has easy access to the Valley’s freeways.

Midtown Neighborhood Association

(MNA) began as the Midtown Museum District Neighborhood Association in 2008, initiated by a few tenacious residents of condominiums at Tapestry on Central, seeking greater City representation of their neighborhood. In 2015, the founders incorporated into a 501(c)3 with a mission to organize various social and information-sharing events that  provide opportunities for neighbors in Midtown Phoenix to get to know each other. Critical to MNA is the promotion of neighborhood safety and Block Watch groups to reduce crime and vandalism. They partner with representatives of local government; Mayor’s office, City Council, Phoenix Police, Keep Phoenix Beautiful and transportation purveyors like Valley Metro light rail, as well as Midtown parks, museums and cultural arts to achieve their mission.
