About

As this name suggests, Midtown is located in the middle of Palo Alto. Unlike other older Palo Alto neighborhoods, Midtown was developed after World War II. Historically, this neighborhood was part of a state-wide post-victory development boom that started the area’s suburbia. Midtown was originally considered South Palo Alto until the area grew so big that Midtown and South Palo Alto were carved out to form two separate neighborhoods.

Midtown’s development was further directed and structured compared to the more organic neighborhoods like Professorville and College Terrace. While Midtown didn’t follow a typical suburban street grid, it did have a standard lot split development, which resulted in uniform lot sizes between 6,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet, with a few exceptions here and there. This consistent inventory of homes and lots were meant to make housing more affordable for returning World War II veterans.

For decades, the housing values between north and south of Oregon Expressway have differed greatly. Starting in the 1990s, as Palo Alto thrived economically and financially, many residents began remodeling or tearing down their homes for brand new ones. As the number of new constructions and major renovation projects grew, so did Midtown’s home values.

This quiet, neatly organized community enjoys a good mix of mid-sized bungalows and larger new homes, allowing for optimal lifestyle versatility.
