Plaza Midwood Wins $25K Grant

Plaza Midwood Wins $25K Grant
February 13, 2014 Cassee Cunningham

plaza midwoodJust a week after being named one of Charlotte’s hippest neighborhoods, Plaza Midwood has won a $25,000 grant from the city.

The grant will be used to strengthen the community’s identity with sign toppers on entry streets, signage to denote the area’s history, as well as two large stone gateway signs on the median of The Plaza.

Plaza Midwood’s history dates back to the 1910s, when it grew as a streetcar suburb to Charlotte.  After a revitalization in the 1990s, a true neighborhood identity – and affinity – grew and flourished.  It’s now one of Charlotte’s most walkable and bikeable neighborhoods with a walk score of 62 and a bike score of 66.

Many of the houses available in Plaza Midwood are renovated bungalows and craftsman style homes.  What makes these homes even better is their proximity to the eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and retail the neighborhood offers.

Plaza Midwood holds a special place in my heart, and I’d love to help you find your dream home there.  Ready to get to know the neighborhood?  Give me a call and let’s explore!
