Referring broadly to the area above Central and below the Peak, Midlevels is more densely populated than The Peak or Island South. It is divided informally into three sections: Central Midlevels, as the name implies, is located above Central and Admiralty, and the developments extending further to the east and west are known as Midlevels East and Midlevels West respectively.

The skyline is dominated by highrise accommodation typical of city living that allows for convenience of access to the Central or Causeway Bay business districts. Many apartments possess panoramic city and harbour views which, at night, provide a galaxy of dynamic neon and laser light shows.  

Modern and luxurious developments are well provided with recreational facilities such as pools, tennis and/or squash courts, gymnasiums and clubhouses, which, along with their ease of access to the city, keeps them in constant high demand. 

Central Midlevels is more popular with bachelors and young couples due to its proximity to the Central business districts and being within walking distance of many popular restaurants and nightlife in Soho and Lan Kwai Fong. Developments close to the well-known Central-Midlevels escalator, which runs from Conduit Road to Des Voeux Road, Central, are particularly attractive to the young executive. This is one of the world's longest covered escalators and takes approximately 20 minutes total walking time either uphill or downhill, making it an easy and convenient commute to work or to the area's nightspots. 

Some of the larger units in luxury developments, of maybe four or more bedrooms, are ideal for families with children. Often available in stylish duplex or triplex layouts, they are sought after for their spacious, efficient designs and five-star clubhouse facilities, besides being located in catchment areas for international schools and close to public transport.

Many major developments operate their own in-house shuttle bus services as added value for their tenants, with the buses running along routes to main drop-off points in town. This assists in alleviating extra costs for running a private car, the difficulty in finding appropriate parking space in Hong Kong, especially in Central, and has the 'feel-good' value of contributing to a 'greener' environment.
