It would be more adequately grouped with the West End and Vine City. Along Northside Drive I would set the boundry of West Midtown to be north of Hollowell and just accross the railroad tracks.

Post recession I hope the continued development in West Midtown will impact new development in other "Westside" neighborhoods. Buying in one of the West Midtown neighborhoods I think would be an excellent investment. Just 5 years from now I think home prices will have risen dramatically. Homes in neighborhoods like Home Park and Underwood Hills are dirt cheap considering the proximity to so much Atlanta has to offer.
If you read the first post, the idea is to official create a West Midtown neighborhood boundaries--not "include" already existing neighborhoods.

The idea includes taking the northern part of the English Avenue neighborhood (the triangle north of Bennett Avenue) as a part of West Midtown. That part of the English Avenue neighborhood is "English Avenue" in name only--it really looks "West Midtown-ish."

There are many areas of Atlanta that do not seem like the neighborhood they are officially a part of--people often do not know the official boundaries and are then surprised. Prime examples are Home Park west of Northside Drive, Blandtown, etc.

The southern boundary you set for West Midtown (Hollowell) is actually further south in the English Avenue neighborhood than the boundary I set. Some people seem to only think of the Vine City-esque part of English Avenue.

Great points about post-recession and investment, stvincent!
