Winston-Salem has an area known loosely as Midtown too, but I don't really call it that. It's the commercial district around 5 Points/Stratford Road/Miller Street with several mid-rise buildings that have popped up in the past decade or so and Hawthorne Hill adjacent to it. There are a couple of business with "Midtown" in the name and it's a perfect Midtown for W-S, but it's hardly known outside of the area by that name and most people in W-S call it 5 Points. The Midtown name might catch on better in the future. I hadn't heard of GSO's Midtown either until this thread...it wasn't there when I lived there so it's a more recent development.

Honestly Charlotte's Midtown is pretty new and not well-known outside of that city either...I think it started after Midtown Park was opened and the area around it became known as Midtown (not sure). I just started hearing about it in the past few years. I hadn't heard about Raleigh's Midtown either. Most of these are just local, loosely-connected neighborhoods that might one day be big enough to be known statewide or regionally/nationally - but not yet. Nothing wrong with every city having a Midtown if they want one.

It's a buzzword.
