As the name implies, this neighborhood was once part of Midtown until the area expanded so much that it was split into two different neighborhoods. Nonetheless, the two still share many qualities, given their close proximity to one another. South Midtown is sectioned off by Loma Verde Ave, East Meadow, Middlefield, and Alma. Despite its highly busy borders, the neighborhood itself is remarkably peaceful, and traffic is rarely problematic. In fact, Bryant St within the neighborhood is a designated biking street, with twisting roads and many traffic stops to slow cars.
South Midtown is historically known for its collection of traditional single-story Eichlers, which the city strictly regulates through a maximum floor area to lot size ratio. Despite these limitations, however, resident turnover in the last decade has led to the knockdown of older Eichlers and rebuilding of more contemporary two- and three-story homes.
Right across East Meadow is the new Mitchell Park Library and Community Center, a hub of activity for the city. Families are particularly attracted to this neighborhood for its walking distance to excellent schools like Hoover Elementary. And the entire neighborhood is within walking distance of Charleston Shopping Center, which offers pharmacies, grocery, and dining.
